After one afternoon working in our ‘balcony’ in front of our bungalow and seating at the cafe of our guesthouse (TR Guesthouse), we woke up early to visit the Unesco site of Old Sukhothai. We rented bikes to ride around the site. Beautiful ruins bricks temples in a park/forest and surrounded ricefield. It was the first time Clément was riding a bicycle since his accident: a big moment 🙂 . Not to mention it was such good bikes 😉
Sukhothai means “Dawn of Happiness”. It was the capital of the Sukhothai kingdom in the 13th and 14th centuries, in what is now the north of Thailand. The city walls form a rectangle about 2 km east-west by 1.6 km north-south. There are 193 ruins on 70 square kilometers of land. Inside are the remains of the royal palace and twenty-six temples (the largest being Wat Mahatha), ancient Buddha figures, palace buildings.
