“Small Chedi on an island”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Located in the central zone on an small isolated island you cross a small wooden bridge to get to wat sa si which features a small chedi and some ruined columns. It is fairly small and unimpressive, particularly when compared to the larger Wat Mahathat which stands proudly across the lake. It does however provide optimum vantage point for taking pictures of the above and isn't far off the cycle track anyway.

OTHER TIPS FOR SUKHOTHAI
- Sunscreen is essential as you will almost certainly get burned without it
- Water is essential and isn’t actually readily locatable as there are few shops between the temples (A welcome change from other SE countries to be honest)
- Considering coming early in the day to avoid the various tourist buses. They will represent a problem mainly in the central zones as you won’t find anyone in the Western zones and few in the northern zone apart from at Wat Si Chum.
- Make sure you hire bikes; it’s too far to walk and they are good fun.
- Bring your camera and probably another battery as you will take plenty of pictures

“Beautiful ruin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

This ruin is a really beautiful one, surrounded by water & is a great place to take pics or sit & relax. It looks fantastic when it's lit up at night!
