Sukhothai historical park: a festival of sounds and lights
It just happened... the night I arrived the owner of the guesthouse told me there would be a sound and light festival inside the park. Ok, it was a private show to celebrate the opening of the opening of some new air routes - and ok, someone related to the king would be there... but he also added that many foreign guests of honour were expected. He suggested I sneak in - saying no one would dare to stop me and aks me if I was invited. I figured there was nothing to lose in trying... it worked! The show was amazing - graceful dancers - and well as the temples lit up at night... beautiful and eerie. If you're in town and such a show is on... don't miss it!
Chopper Beer: Fun bar
This is a hopping little bar, sometimes with live music (Thai classics and Western standards). I actually did some open mic here, which was good fun. The clientele is mostly Thai, but everyone is really friendly. So, order up some big bottles of Chiang beer and relax.
Dress Code: none
Chopper Bar: 80's pop tunes in New Sukhothai
This rooftop restaurant and bar is located just off the main road that goes to the Sukhothai Historic Park in New Sukhothai, near to where all the guest houses are located. They have some live acoustic guitar music playing plus some rather obscure 80's pop tunes playing during the evenings. The menu is Thai and Western.
