Sukhothai Historical Park, Thailand


Both former capitals of Thailand, Sukhothai and Ayutthaya are brimming with temples and buildings of religious significance and a peaceful calm prevails as one wanders around the ruins.

Ayutthaya is within easy reach of Bangkok by either boat or road and can be combined with a visit to Kanchanaburi, site of the notorious Death Railway and the bridge over the River Kwai. At nearby Nakhon Pathom, Thailand's largest chedi stands 127m high.

Located north of Bangkok, Sukhothai is a beautiful market town, full or architectural delights and friendly locals. The famous old city of Sukhothai, The meuang kào features a large expanse of ancient ruins and temples. Although not the largest of towns it offers a great base for discovering the nearby temples and the perfect way to see the sights is by hiring a bicycle and travelling around at a leisurely pace.  

Both Sukhothai and Ayutthaya are beautiful Thai towns offering a wonderful atmosphere and some stunning sites. A few days on any Thailand holiday will be well spent in this historic part of the country.
