Sukhothai was Thailand’s first capital, and its Historical Park protects many of the city’s most impressive 12th-14th Century monuments.
Walk amongst the hundreds of chedis of the Wat Mahathat complex, and in Wat Si Chum see the huge seated Buddha, clothed in orange robes. Apart from showcasing the distinct Sukhothai style, widely considered the pinnacle of Thai art and design, this World Heritage-listed site is simply a fine place to wander, with its hundreds of ancient temples and Buddhist relics set amongst shady groves and ponds blanketed in lotus flowers.
We spend the night in nearby Phitsanulok, where you might like to join your TUI Tour Leader for dinner at the town’s most entertaining dining experience, the ‘flying vegetable’ restaurants on the Nan River.
