A perfect little stop on your way to Chang Mai from Bangkok is the small city of Sukothai. Not only is this one night stop over a fascinating spot, it also breaks up what would be a rather arduous bus journey.
Just outside the city limits sits a famous tourist attraction, the ruins of the ancient city of Sukothai which was the Thai capital in the 13th Century AD.
I woke up early and grabbed a local bus to the entrance of the Historical Park where I rented a bicycle for the day. With a handy map in my pocket I listened to Ace of Base and Feist all day while peddling about. I felt very free spirited that day, all on my own, engaged with my music and taking snap shots of 800 year old Buddha’s. Sukothai is a good work out and a nice mental calm from the bustle of Bangkok.
