Sukhothai in a day?!?

by TaniaBeard

I was wondering if this itinerary sounds feasible in one day?

Bus from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai (what is the earliest bus time?)I understand the trip takes 3 hours?
Tranfer to old city (from where, how & how long does it take?)
Hire bicyle & ride around ruins
Transfer back to Sukhothai (from where & how?)
Transfer by bus to Phitsanulok (from where & how long will this take?)

We want to go from Sukhothai to Phitsanulok to catch the early morning train to Ayuthaya. Does the above sound like the best way or is there a better way to get from Sukhothai to Ayuthaya?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

The easiest way to get to the ‘Old’ City from ‘New’ Sukothai is Songtaew – the fare is around 10 Baht from Jarot Withithong Road near the Yom River. (will take about 20 minutes).

The bus ride from (new) Sukhothai to Phitsanulok takes about 1 hour. I suppose buses from other cities will arrive/depart from the main bus station.

See for map (with the two bus stations) of (new) Sukhothai:

The visit to Sukhothai Historical park on 'our' bikes was one of the highlights of our Thailand visit. See for more info and some pics: http://members.virtualtourist.com/vt/tfr/1/797/4/18da6b/


happy travels

I personally would not put all that in one day. If you want to see the major sites in Sukhothai Historical Park you can easly spend a whole day biking arround. There is 21 historical sites within the gates (old walls) and additional 70 sites within a 5 km radius. For example Wat si Chum( 11.30m sitting Buddha) as one of the more famous sites is located outside the walls and should not be missed. There is two ticket kinds: One for within the walls and another one for the outside ones.

Thank you both for your help. I will try to change my itinerary to stay in Sukhothai for one night...

I would like to suggest, if you can spare the time, to go check out Kamphaeng Phet which is also home to a UNESCO world heritage site and Si Satchanalai-chaliang historical park. Both are quiter and less visted by tourist but are gems nevertheless. Unfortunately, Kaphaeng Phet is situated about 1.5 hours drive from Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai is about 1 hour drive.

In all Sukhothai and the surrounding sites deserve at least 2 days, even that is pushing it but having travelled so far to Sukhothai and missing these two would simply be a shame.

Travel Tips for Sukhothai

the dawn of happiness

by call_me_rhia

The capital of the first Kingdom of Siam in the 13th and 14th centuries - and it's such a wonderful maagical place. The name means 'the dawn of happiness', and all I can say is that the name can perfectly express my feelings while I was visiting there. Wat Mahahat is possibly the most famous sight - other places not to miss are: Wat Si Savai, which looks like a hindu temple a bit, and Wat Si Chum, where the big buddha is.
Admission to the archaelogical park is 50 baht, and 40 to wat si chum outside the main complex.

Dry season and fleas

by thedouglas

We encountered some problems with fleas in Sukhothai - which we were subsequently told is a problem during the dryer weather there. So, if you have a repellent which covers these little bities, as well as the usual mosquitoes, its ideal.

Tuktuks as always

by Mahieu

Indeed, like in most Thai cities, you can also find tuktuks in Sukhotai. There are different from those in Bangkok. Here, the driver is seated behind you! So, in case of an accident, you're the first one to go ;-))
The drivers are pretty careful. Because the tuktuk is completely open, it can get a bit chilly during night.

Splendid airport

by Mahieu

Yes indeed, if you come to Sukhothai by plane, you will be very surprised to discover the airport! I had the feeling that I was in the middle of a park! It is really fantastic how they integrated the airport in the rest of the environment.
Bangkok Airways flies daily to Sukhothai. The flight takes about 1h10.
