Die Fahrt nach Sukhothai ergänzt ein wenig unsere Verkehrsmittelauswahl, haben wir doch nun auch alle Busklassen mit Ausnahme des VIP-Busses erkundet. Neben der tatsächlich bequemen Fahrt erster Klasse zurück nach Chiang Mai, der durchaus einfachen und kurzen Tour zum Wat Rong Khun im Rostbus dritter Klasse mit drohend, defektem Ventilator überm …
... Site about 30 minutes west of the new city. The city of Sukhothai used to be the capital of ancient Thailand hundreds of years ago, and I was planning to explore this park by bicycle.
My visit to Sukhothai ended up being what I had imagined my trip to the temples of Angkor Wat to be like. Peaceful and pleasant, and easy to explore by bike. My day was brightened even further by the company of Yao Juan, a Chinese girl I met on the bus to the ...
... t to fond of that to be honest. Noodles made out of rice in a sweet tasting broth with some meat. But it's different. I liked Sukhothai, you can just chill out for a few days and grab a bike to see the countryside The temples were impressive, made some nice pictures but saw too many temples already as I said earlier haha. Met Takuma from Japan and Janneke from Haarlem. I've met them at a cafe near the temple. I had a feeling that she was from The Netherlands haha. First ...
... ancient city of Sukhothai and our digs for the night, a pair of semi detached old Style Thai bungalows. We'd checked the place beforehand on-line and the picture showed a bungalow nestled beside water covered with beautiful water lillys. Ours was beside a dried up sandy ditch. However we could park the car nearby and it was very convenient for visiting the city on our hired bikes.
After a particularly tasteless supper we decided to party (!) and play scrabble in Jamie's room.
Sukhothai knocked our flip flops off today! We woke up bright and early for some very yummy pancakes at the lotus village and then hopped in a Tuk Tuk (see picture) for the 14 Km drive to the old part of the city. We rented bikes for the day ($1 USD) and headed for the Sukhothai historical park which is an amazing ancient city that flourished between the 13th and 16th centuries. In 1991 this area became a world heritage site. The old temples and structures here were so beautiful and it ...
TravelPod Member ReviewsPin Pao Guesthouse Sukhothai
Our stay at the PinPao was nothing to be remembered for a long time but still it was a good and enjoyable accomodation. We liked the short distance to the historical park of Sukhothai and the room was very clean and big enough. Already before booking we have read about the hard mattresses and there is no other way to name them. The bed was very big but indeed quite hard, though nicely decorated with a big amount of pillows. Since we just stayed two nights it was very much ok but think about the beds if you want to stay there for a longer time.
+ a really lovely and tasty breakfast
+ nice pool and relaxation zone behind the house
+ good position close to the old city
+ friendly and helpful staff
- hard beds
- room's window will most likely be towards the hallway
