The primary reason to stay in Sukhothai is proximity to Sukhothai Historical Park. There are numerous fascinating ruins from the 12th century and later, with three main areas of ruins – inside the old city walls, and Eastern and Northern sections. For the latter two, it was great having the car to get around, as it was pretty hot while we were there. People mainly used bikes and motorbikes to get around the outer sections. The central section we did on foot – we didn’t see all of it, but spent most time at the main wat. And we came back in the early evening when it was cooler to see one of the smaller temples. Each of the sections required a ticket – just 100 baht per person.
