“Old Sukhothai was one of the places we enjoyed most in Thailand. It occupies a vast area of about 70 km2, full of ruins that will certainly have a strong impact, especially in westerners, less accustomed to such scenarios. We have been in Sukhothai a day and a half, with a map and compass in hand and aways pedaling. But we might as well have stayed another day to cover the whole historical park, that has more than 190 ruins. “

Where to stay in Sukhothai

Sukhothai is composed of two distinct zones, New Sukhothai and Old Sukhothai, where the historical park is located.

We suggest you stay in Old Sukhothai, a small village that has everything you need and is practically inserted in the historical park. From this area you can visit some of the attractions on foot and the rest are in the distance for pedaling on your bike.
