It was busy with building traffic when i went to see it but it was still worth it. You need a bicycle or car to get there but you wont regret it.

If you've decided to visit Sukhothai Historical Park then visit Wat Mahathat first and this the second "must see". But not necessarily the second to do item if time allows pursuit of happiness. This Buddha is unique and takes only half an hour if you have a car, but longer otherwise. While in this Eastern Zone don't forget to drive... More

I thought this buddha was delightful peering out from the building. On closer inspection you can see how beautiful the fingers are and serene the facial features.

This is one of Sukhothais best. Geographically a bit away from the rest of the historical park, this Buddha is simply mind blowing in both size and expression. A must. We went there during rain. It was mystical, and we were alone. Only a local Thai man was sitting in a corner, praying silently.

I visited this Wat about 20 years ago it is still in great condition given the amount of visitors it gets. I personally feel it is a very beautiful Buddha and worth taking the time to visit. It is very large and hard to take in at once. Awe inspiring.

This sight is bound to be on most visitors “must see” list, and it is easy to see why. It is unique, and worth a visit, just to see the mondop, although there are other ruins on site as well.

One of the most beautiful Buddha statues I have seen - don't miss it when you visit Sukhothai. Reflects so much history.......

I love him,and visit every time I go to Sukothai. The beautiful slender hand with gold fingers on many postcards in Thailand,belong to him.One can only reach the finger tips! Wat si chum refers to the mondop housing the vast Buddha. He has the most blissful face and heart lifting smile of any statue I have seen. Pictures of his... More
