province’s most distinguished attraction is Sukhothai Historical Park,
designated as one of the World Heritage Sites. Before wandering around
the massive compound which usually takes a full day, first time tourists
are always recommended to go to the Ramkhamhaeng National Museum for
a brief history of this once splendid kingdom. The glory of Sukhothai
is reflected in the abundant ancient temples and Buddha image stuccos,
ruined brick pagodas as well as laterite viharn columns. There are
more than a hundred sites in the whole complex many of which are worth
from the sacred charm of the ancient city, Si Satchanalai and Ramkhamhaeng
National Parks retouch the green color and the scent of nature to
the province with a fascinating view of various cascades in the
fertile mixed forest. For those who have a chance to stay longer,
both parks also provide overnight camping for adventurous tourists.
