need some info for sukhothai

by i-s-a

Dear fellow VTers,

Just wonder how safe it is for a single female to travel to Sukhothai? I plan to take the night trip from Bangkok...which do you think is better train or bus? Is one whole day enough to see/appreciate the place? Could you please recommend a good guesthouse near the parks?

Lastly, if you think visiting Sukhothai for a day is not a good idea...please suggest a one day activity outside Bangkok for me to try. I've seen most of Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Chiangmai in the past.

Thanks a lot,
Isa

I am sure that you'll be as safe there as anywhere, but as a male it is not easy for me to place myself in your situation.

Sukothai is weel worth a visit, make sure you get a good guide or guide book as it is a large site.

Regards

John

Hi Isa!
Sukhothai is nice, and yes, one day is enough to see it all. It should be as safe as anywhere else in Thailand, so don't worry!
I'm not sure if there are hostels around the ruins. I stayed in town, which is probably even better. You can get to the ruins in about 1/2 hour by tuk-tuk.
Enjoy!

Hi,

There's direct buses from BKK to Sukhothai. For trains, the nearest train station coming from BKK is Phitsanulok, next Sukhothai province. We took an hour bus ride from Phit to Sukhothai Historical Park. We visited Sukhothai Historical Park in a day, excluding all other sites in Sukhothai.

From BKK, you can visit Kanchanaburi as a day-excursion. They are fairly near, i.e. about 2-2.5hours car ride. Or even a lovely Lop Buri province, 3 hours train ride from BKK....It's a small province...

Hope I've answered your queries....

Thanks John, Stef and Eliss! You've all been very helpful. Pity I only have limited time to see other wonderful places...who knows, I might extend my trip to a week ;0).

Eliss, Lopburi and Kanchanaburi seems to be a good option too...thanks.

Will share with you my experiences when I get back.

Have a nice day!

Isa

Hi;
Taking a train should be a very safe option. However, most northern train will arrive in the middle of the night, so you better have a pre-arranged hotel to stay as it definitely not recommendable to hang out at train station at late hours.

Alternatively, going to Karnchanaburi should be interesting. A bridge over River Kwai, and all kind of jungle treking on elephant back. Buy a tour package for a day tour should be the way to go.

Travel Tips for Sukhothai

The green Historical Park

by dabuwan

The Sukhothai Historical Park has been set up by Thai Government and UNESCO a few years ago. Before then, the ruins were very dangerous to visit, while now the whole area is perfectly kept and the park is a very pleasant place. You'll need a bicycle if you want to see most of the ruins, as they are scattered around. The vegetation is also very green and lush. Be careful for the heat; when I was there it was 46 C in the shadow and very humid.

Wat Saphan Hin

by gib157

This is one of the temples to the west of Sukhothai, on the hill. It has a very impressive buddha statue with fantastic views over the fields. I cylce here then walked up about 200 steps to get to it, worth the trip i think.

Wat Si Sawai

by HasTowelWillTravel

This wat situated southwest off the main center of old Sukhothai has some fabulous pieces of Ceylonian-influenced architecture. This is manifested in the 3 towers that look like ears of corn, which are termed to be in the "Lopburi" style. There are several murals, or lintels, of various Hindu and Buddhist events, indicating it was once a site of the Brahman religion before becoming a Buddhist temple.

Royal Palace

by easterntrekker

The Royal Palace is in the centre of old Sukothai. This is a large site covering around 160,000 square meters containing two main compounds and completely surrounded by a water moat.

The sites are so large we were happy we decided to bike around . It is really the best way.

Details: Sukhothai Historical Park is open daily from 08.30 to 16.30. The Royal Palace / Wat Mahathat are in the central zone and admission is 40 Baht.
