Passed over by many travellers and tourists that have already seen the ancient Thai ruins at the more conveniently situated site in Ayutthaya, the remains of the medieval period capital of Siam in Sukhothai can come as a complete surprise to people with no idea what to expect.
In many respects, the ruins in Sukhothai are in better shape and are far more accessible to visitors.
Upon arriving in the Old Town via songthaew from the New Town (20 baht as of 2010, which was when the above picture was taken), guests can rent bicycles for 50 baht/day.
This makes cruising around the ruins a breeze and enables shots like the one seen above.
