After we enjoyed the history of Ayuthaya. we decided to stop off at Sukhothai for even more history as this was the original capital of Thailand where the Thai alphabet as well as much of its culture was developed.
We didn't do much on our first day there as the bikes killed my knees so we took it easy, and the place we were staying at was really nice, it even had a swimming pool and a really nice restaurant with freshly baked bread daily.
The next day we got a local bus to Sukhothai historical park that was huge, so we again hired bikes to get around the place faster. The sites in the park were as well maintained as they could have been and we saw some fantastic old wats and Buddha's(even though we were a bit Buddha'd out). The park was also fantastic, it was so peaceful and beautiful that even without the ruins it was a really nice place to spend the day. Matthew really enjoyed it and took some really good photo's.
Sukhothai was a really nice place overall, all the people were really friendly and the street food was cheap and lovely. Not much to see apart from old whats, and we have seen plenty of them now! (spot the deliberate mistake)
Next stop Chiang Mai.
