Two nights easily turned into three nights in Sukhothai. This place is a tranquil haven where I believe that with enough time, even I could achieve enlightenment. Or maybe that is the Chang beer talking.
Sukhothai was the capital of most of Thailand during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries until it was replaced by Ayutthaya. It is now a well preserved UNESCO heritage park. The ruins are spread over a very large area, making it perfect for exploration by bicycle. Each morning we headed out at first light to enjoy another corner of this magic place. The warm light, cool temperatures and tranquility of the site at this hour was entrancing.
