Greetings from the Mueang Kao Community! Take a deep breath of fresh air, before heading off to make offerings to monks on the iconic bridge across the pool next to Tra Pang Thong Temple at the heart of Sukhothai.
Mueang Kao really has so much to offer. We know you’ll be impressed by the beauty of ancient lacquer-ware made famous by this region, as well as the simplicity of lifestyles preserved by the local people. Sukhothai is known to be relatively small and tidy for a city, and there is still a significant amount of charm to the place. With wide roads and not so much traffic, there are only a few other places in Thailand where you can get around so conveniently. And wherever you go, you’re sure to pass by many of the timelessly beautiful ancient sites. All of the beauty, class and history remain richly ingrained in every brick that forms the palace perimeter, Buddhist statues and temples.
“Sukhothai” actually means “dawn of happiness”, and we can confirm that after visiting this truly special place you’ll leave with a smile.
