Using this airport is more like going to a garden. This is probably one of the most pleasant airport terminals I have used. It is not big nor modern but it gives the passenger the feeling of tropical calm.
For just 20b for the whole day a bike has to be the best way to get around Sukothai historical park - especially if you want to visit the more remote temples like Wat Saphan Hin. There is usually somwhere to lock the bike up ( lock being included in price).
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.
From Bangkok to Sukhotai, the easiest way is by plane. There are daily connections, made by Bangkok Airways. The flight time is about 1h10. Don't forget to have a look at the beautiful Sukhotai airport when arriving ( see 'must see tip)
The historical park of sukhthai is huge, so it makes sense to rent a bike to visit it. All guesthouses in old sukhothai rent them for 20 bath a day. There is also the possibility of seeing the park by bus or tourist toy-train, but it really doesn't make sense since you won't have the choice of sights to see, nor the time you want. by bice it's very easy to cycle around nasty corwds and loud tour buses
This national park is to large to walk in the heat. Possibly the young and fit tourist would enjoy hiring a pedal bike for the day.
We did our tour with the aid of an air conditioned mini van.
