There are no crowds, well in September there weren't, so the pace is slow and this is the perfect place to hire a by cycle and ride . Take time to sit be the lake and imagine what life was back centuries ago.

Not as grand a the Sukhothai Historical Park, but definitely worth your while. It is quite near Sukhothai.

Wonderfully peaceful, extremely interesting and well worth the trip. We hired a car and driver from Sukhothai who drove us to Si Satchanalai Historical Park and surrounding area. For 100 baht you can visit the main park, for 220 baht you can also visit the Thuriang kilns and human skeletons at Wat Chom Chuen. Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahnathat Chaliang... More

It's a little hike from Sukhothai but worth the effort as there is public transport available. You can easily spend a whole day in the park and won't be bored. The park is not as much visited as Sukhothai park but it's certainly as impressive.

This well maintained complex shows a wide variety of old temples on a big Unesco site. Bring your own motosoi to make the visits to all the off-site structures without the burden of having to ride a bike, some sites are quite far away. Still enough exercise when you visit the forest area ;)

My wife and I are a bit of UNESCO freaks so we made the day trip out this section of the park. Rented bicycles and did a tour of the park. If you have already spent a couple of days at the main park this might be overkill for you. We wanted to see a less visited part of the... More

I loved this place- the history, the peaceful surrounds, the information provided so you could really picture what the ruins once were in their heyday. You could easily spend a whole day here but we only had a couple of hours so packed in as much as we could within walking distance of the main complex. Even the ride out... More

We've been to Siem Reap and loved the ruins but this place is smaller and just stunning. Si Satchanalai was to be the one place I wanted to see this holidays and it didn't disappoint. There was something new around every corner. Absolutely loved it. Definitely the highlight of our trip. The locals are so nice too. Would recommend

Beautifully manicured park with excellently preserved monuments. A pleasure to stroll around and enjoy the sights with surprisingly few tourists
