Sukhothai

Getting around

A ride by sǎamláw around New Sukhothai should cost no more than 40B. Sǎwngthǎew run frequently from 6.30am to 6pm between New Sukhothai and Sukhothai Historical Park (15B, 30 minutes), leaving from Th Jarot Withithong near Mae Nam Yom. The sign is on the north side of the street, but sǎwngthǎew actually leave from the south side.

The best way to get around the historical park is by bicycle, which can be rented at shops outside the park entrance for 20B per day, or at any guesthouse in New Sukhothai (30B). Don’t rent the first beater bikes you see at the bus stop in the old city as the better bikes tend to be found at shops around the corner, closer to the park entrance. The park operates a tram service through the old city for 20B per person.

Transport from the bus terminal into the centre of New Sukhothai costs 40B in a chartered vehicle, or 10B per person in a shared sǎwngthǎew. Sǎamláw and motorbike taxis cost 30B. If going directly to the Old Sukhothai, sǎwngthǎew charge 80B.

Motorbikes can be rented at Poo Restaurant and many guesthouses in New Sukhothai.
