Top areas in Sukhothai
The Thai city of Sukhothai is a celebration of history and culture. Boasting a UNESCO Heritage listing and Old City, the first capital of the Siam kingdom still holds great importance despite being a relatively small city. Arriving to the city is easy via domestic flights to Sukhothai Airport, or buses can be boarded from Bangkok or nearby Phitsanulok.
Sukhothai Historical Park was the center of the original Sukhothai Kingdom for two centuries, and it offers many ruins from that period. It is located only 12km from the city today. Ramkhamhaeng National Museum provides an air conditioned alternative to browsing through this city’s history with a display of artifacts and information that really brings the site together. Touring the city on bike or getting a tuk tuk driver, especially one who is a worthy guide, is one of the truest ways to appreciate the city and its surroundings. Renting a motorbike of your own adds a greater sense of adventure for visitors.
A full range of accommodation can be expected here with most properties in the heart of the modern center. Resort-styled properties are generally placed outside of the town and closer to the Historical Park. Sukhothai hotels here are reasonably priced, and it is no surprise when visitors stay longer than planned to further enjoy the town’s relaxed atmosphere and friendly people.
