Arrival in Sukhothai
Most people head to Sukhothai by train, which connect with both Bangkok and Chiang Mai. When you arrive at Phitsanulok train station we’ll transfer you to your hotel. You’ll stay in a cosy, teak bungalow set amongst lotus gardens. The hotel is situated in the new part of town, but the wonders of the ancient temples and ruins of Sukothai’s UNESCO listed Historic Park are not far away.
Sukhothai - Free Time
Your day is free to explore at your own pace, but we would recommend starting bright and early when the temperature is cooler. We would suggest you hire a bike so you can cover the larger distances more easily and fit more in to your day. The trails around the park are well-maintained and you’ll pass ancient temples, manicured lawns and colourful lily ponds along the way.
The ruins are divided into five zones, each with its own entrance fee (around £3 per person). The central zone contains the best-preserved ruins and Wat Mahathat, the largest of them, should not be missed. In the Northern zone you’ll find Wat Si Chum, with its regal 15m high Buddha; you might even recognise his often photographed fingers. The Western zone is rarely visited by tourists and is a good spot to relax under the shady trees.
Departure from Sukhothai
Today your Sukhothai trip must come to an end and after breakfast a transfer will take you from your accommodation back to Phitsanulok train station. From here, you’ll catch the train to the next destination on your Thailand holiday.
