UNESCO Ασία Πολιτισμός

Sukhothai, the ancient capital of Thailand

Sukhothai was the capital of Thailand from 1238 to 1438.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is littered with ruins of royal palaces, Buddhist temples and historic sites.

Guests arriving there early enough can enjoy the golden morning light and have the park at their disposal, an ideal time for stunning photos. The best way to see the ruins inside and outside the city walls is to rent a bicycle or moped.

The city is divided into two parts, the old and the new city which are about 12 km apart.

The best way for an unforgettable visit to this unique park, is for the visitor to stay in one of the nearby hotels overnight so that he can start his tour early. There are buses that take visitors between the old and the new city, every 20 minutes.

Buddhist monks observe Wat Mahathat. Generally many Buddhists visit this park and worship the ancient statues.
