Our second stop was Sukhothai, which ended up as being my favourite part of Thailand. I read Sukhothai Historical Park is a must see and I’m happy we did stopped by this little city. Sukhothai has a totally different vibe than Bangkok, it’s way more laid back and people seemed friendlier. Our hostel, Sabaidee Guesthouse, was full of charm, peaceful and lost in the countryside. There was a beautiful garden, bungalows, arts and crafts and the owner was a sweetheart. We could even rent bikes for free, weee! So I was really happy to discover the city centre on a bike because wherever I am in the world, it’s my favourite way to get around.
The next morning, we went to Old Sukhothai and visited the ruins. I was astonished by the park immensity, the small ponds and the amount of ancient Buddha figures, buildings and temples surrounded by gorgeous lush greenery. It felt so peaceful and marvellous. On top of that, the best way to visit the whole site was on bicycle (happy me). After riding around, I couldn’t forget these children, off from their school day nearby the park, curiously starring at us strangers.
N.B. the pictures of my most recent Asian trip were taken with my old Rebel XS so please forgive the low resolution. Meh.
