Sukhothai is a historic town in northern Thailand, with few of the most incredible collapsed temples in southeast Asia. It was the ancient capital of Thailand in the 13th and 14th centuries. Presently, you can still see a large number of temples, sculptures and Buddha statues in Sukhothai Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Old City. Also, unlike Cambodia's Angkor Wat, Sukhothai managed to remain (slightly!) under the radar. So, without the queues, you can still visit its ancient ruins.
Sukhothai Historical Park: The heart of the Kingdom of Sukhothai is affectionately referred to as the dawn of happiness. The 13th-century Sukhothai Historic Park contains the ancient ruins of Sukhothai. In fact, this park is host to one of Thailand’s 21 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The community centre features four large lakes between old dividers, with 70 destinations within a 5 km (3.1 mile) distance.
Sukothai Saturday Night Market: Sukhothai enjoys its Saturday nights with the most vivid energy. Everyone from the city gathers at Sukhothai Night Market after sunset, by the waterway. In reality, this unusual Thai market is much more than a road lined up with sellers. Every Saturday night, you'll find this market place turned into a public concert or dance floor. You have to come to this night market to enjoy fantastic food at a fair price when visiting Sukhothai. Most of the sellers are good to the vendors, and it's a fantastic environment.
Ramkhamhaeng National Museum: The National Museum of Ramkhamhaeng is situated in the Sukhothai Central City. This museum is a perfect place to visit the ancient remains of the city centre. The museum also houses the famous Ramkhamhaeng engraving, which is said to be the earliest example of Thai writing. These writings are well documented in the great array of Sukhothai artefacts.
Wat Saphan Hin and Wat Mahathat: The Wat Saphan Hin Temple is located on a hill just above old town. It includes the Wat Saphan Hin Phra Attharot Buddha. The name of the temple is derived from the words "stone bridge" which derives from the 300-metre (984.3 foot) slate stone road. There is a stone platform, with a little square stupa on it, less than three-quarters of the way up, as well as the sculptural remnants of the Buddha are in the prayer hall, on the top of the hill.
Sukhothai is so hot. Riding a bike or ascending stone steps to meet the hilltop Buddha statue is difficult task under the blazing hot Thai sun. So if you can, the great season to visit Sukhothai would be during the dry, cool season, from November to February.
