The park is open daily from 8.30 a.m. – 4.30 p.m. The park also offers tram services as well as bicycles for rent to explore around its large area. The Tourists Service Centre in the park provides information, as well as displays models of historical buildings and structures in old Sukhothai.
Ruins of the royal palaces, Buddhist temples, the city gates, walls, moats, dams, ditches, ponds, canals and the water dyke control system which was the magical and spiritual centre of the kingdom are now preserved and have been restored by Fine Arts Department with the cooperation of UNESCO, not only with a view of foresting Thailand’s national identity but of safeguarding a fine example of mankind’s cultural heritage.
