Sukhothai, Thailand - Vas-y pédale!!

So, after a pretty great day of travel from Nakhon Sawan, we eventually reached Sukhothai

Hitchhiking’s still working wonderfully for us!  We even managed to get a ride all the way to Sukhothai’s old city, location of the National Historical Park, and probably one of the city’s highlights . . . SWEET!!  :)

We only planned on making a quick stop at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.  You know, just to see what all the hype was about . . . And personally, I’m very glad we did. 

Sukhothai, which translates into "the dawn of happiness," was quite fascinating. 

Some may see this place as just another pile of old rocks, and maybe even say to themselves, "Oh no, not more ruins!!" 

Or maybe even, "If you’ve seen one set of Thai ruins, you’ve seen them all!"  But, I’d choose to disagree!!  It was truly breathtaking!

Anyway, as many of its visitors, we chose to get around the historical park by bicycle.

Sukhothai, Thailand - Wat Si Sawai
 What fun!!

Well, maybe not too much for Arnaud, since he was the one peddling under the scorching heat!!  :) 

Little ol’ me, just sat back admiring the stunning views of the park’s ruins!!

The newer part of Sukhothai, itself, is quite a chill place, with friendly faces all about; but in my opinion, not really worth visiting.

But definitely don’t miss the ruins . . . the Buddha figures and all the temples are awesome!!  Enjoy the pix!!  :)

Le lendemain notre ami prof nous déposa sur la route principale pour Sukhothai.

On arriva en début de journée vers 12h30. Le temps était parfait.

Il fallait juste louer un vélo pour faire la visite, le site étant vraiment très grand, c’était la meilleure façon.

Comme dit le titre, ce site fait parti des nombreux patrimoines de l’Unesco. C’était vraiment unique de visiter ces temples à vélo, je vous laisse admirer les photos.
