u have to pay to get in, but it is worth it, its best if you have bike as it is a big park to walk, n it will take alot of your time if you walk. or if you have a car you may drive in.

UNESCO site and worthy of the title, the park is littered with fantastic ruins, that let the imagination run wild as to what these would have looked like in the centuries when they were built. The museum is definitely worth visiting, and I would heed the advice of going early or (I imagine this would be great) going late, when the sites are illuminated and the buses long gone. It would probably be best to stay in the old town if you decide to do that.

Best seen by bike - something you can rent easily and cheaply right near the entrance to the central section of the park.

A great park, visit it after mid afternoon. Let the tour buses leave, and enjoy it into the night mostly alone. For this you should stay at one of the hotel in Old Sukhothai, which allows you to walk or bike to the Park. If you can only do one - Ayuthaya or Sukhothai, do this one. Enjoy!

The walled city is quite special, but even more impressive are the 2 sights a little further afield, but still within an easy cycle ride. these areas are certainly quieter. Go early or late to avoid the heat of the day, and go sooner rather than later - the big, noisy, ac buses are beginning to make their presence known... There really is no need for cars, tuk tuks or buses - part of the attraction has got to be the peaceful cycle, and the friendly staff who arrange your bikes for you.

We had our own car for the visit. Most people were on tours with buses or bicycles. The main ruin area has been partially restored and we found it most impressive. Try to go early in the morning when it is cool and fewer visitors are around.
