With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: At the historical village, hire a bicycle or motorcycle(from town) to get around. You'll see.a lot more. If you would like to visit a wat with no one around, they're are plenty around the old city. The map given will show some but also do a bit of your own "temple hunting"

Liked: The historical village was very interesting! Great to see all the wats up close and personal. If you can, definitely go exploring around the outskirts. You'll find many Wats with no one around!

Disliked: We only stayed two nights but we hired motorbikes to get around. The only place we couldn't find any restaurants. Other than that I liked my visit to sukhothai!
