Sukhothai in North Thailand has a population of around 37,000 people.
Bangkok, the national capital, is located 230 miles (370 kilometers) south of Sukhothai, while Chiang Mai lies 130 miles (209 kilometers) to the northwest.
One of the most fascinating historic attractions in Sukhothai is the Si Satchanalai Historical Park. This site provides for visitors the opportunity to deepen their understanding of an important time in time. Wander around the site, get photographs and learn about local history.
In addition to urban parks, the local city also has a few larger nature reserves where you can go to see unique scenery and remarkable local wildlife. Head out to Ramkhamhaeng National Park and relish an escape from the paved streets.
Before you leave Sukhothai, do try to see the Wat Sri Chum the Wat Sra Sri and the Wat Ma Ha That; just three more of the sights which help make the area the special place it is.
