Visit Sukhothai to see some of the oldest temples ruins in Thailand. The ancient city was the first capital of the Kingdom of Siam. Sukhothai Historical Park/Sukhothai Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the partially restored 13th to 14th-century palaces and temples. For off-the-beaten-path ancient sites, don’t miss nearby Kamphaeng Phet and Si Satchanalai.
Sukhothai is one hour and 15 minutes north of Bangkok by plane. Most travelers arrive by land from either Chiang Mai, which is 4 hours away by bus, or Bangkok, approximately 7 hours away by bus or train.
