Far up in northern Thailand lays the little town of Sukhothai, which is home to some of Thailand’s best preserved ruins. The world heritage site and historical park of Sukhothai, covers approximately 70 square kilometres of land, encompassing 193 ruins that consist of palaces and temples. Some of which are amazingly preserved.
Sukhothai is pretty dusty and can be extremely hot depending on the time of year. However the 6 – 7 hour bus ride from Bangkok is definitely worth the effort – you won’t be disappointed! There are also a few other things in the local area to see on a motorbike/bicycle to keep you amused for a couple of days.
