After staying a night in ayutthaya we made our way north to Sukothai. To be cheap we got ourselves to the random bus station just outside of town and luckily picked up the last 2 second class bus tickets for the 12pm bus.
6 1/2 hours later we arrived in Sukhothai in the middle of a thunderstorm. Luckily our hostel was on top of an Italian restaurant so we waited out the rain whilst scoffing lasagne.
The next day we got the bus to old Sukhothai and rented 30 baht very questionable bikes to get around the ruins. Unfortunately it seems Facebook has managed to delete the photos I've uploaded but at least Tash has a ton on her camera. We went of the beaten track a bit and found some of the smaller temples out of the main complex - well worth it for being the only ones there and seeing gorgeous temples with intricate elephants all around. Hiding from the heat we found a little cafe which has firmly set my new love for wonton soup - amazing!!
We didn't quite realise how sunny it was though, and are now both sporting impressive tan lines over our backs, which 10 days later show no signs of fading :/
We spent the evening in the night food market, marvelling at the idea of 30 baht (60p) dishes, we ordered far too much food but scoffed the lot rather unceremoniously.
