  • 1 The Old City of Si Satchanalai Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended

    Archaeological and historical sites

    Pratu Dom Laem

    Just as impressive as its neighbour Sukhothai, the historic city of Si Satchanalai (a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1990) suddenly appears out of the forest on the right bank of the River Mae Nam Yom. In a more peaceful setting than Sukhothai, it ..

  • 2 Wat Chang Lom Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended

    Religious buildings

    Similar to the one in Sukhothai, this Sri Lankan-style bell-shaped chedi in the middle of the temple rests on a base supported by 36 elephants, which give the temple its name Wat Chang Lom. Despite the inscription which attributes the temple to King ..

  • 3 Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended

    Religious buildings

    With a tall spire shaped like a lotus bud, this chedi is typical of Sukhothai art. Within the Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo complex there are no fewer than seven rows of chedi, which, despite the ravages of time, have retained their stucco decor. These monume..

  • 4 Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahatat Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    A bell-shaped chedi marks the centre of Wat Khao Suwan Khiri, perched on the top of a hill (hence its name, which means "temple of the golden hill") in the heart of the forest. There are few ruins here, but the view of the old city of Si Sa..

  • 6 Wat Chao Chan Interesting

    Religious buildings

    Bad weather has eroded the Buddha images of Wat Chao Chan, sculpting their faces into simple lines reminiscent of the statues in the Cyclades. Behind the ruins of the wihan stands a fully restored prang, which was originally built by Jayavarman VII. ..

  • 7 Wat Nang Phya Interesting

    Religious buildings

    Wat Nang Phya, the "Temple of the Queen", is worth a visit for the remarkable stucco reliefs on the south wall, which date from the period of Ayutthaya. Similar to wood carvings in style, these delicate reliefs depict floral motifs inspired..

  • 8 Wat Khao Phanom Phloeng Interesting

    Religious buildings

    Wat Khao Phanom Phloeng, the "Temple of the Sacred Fire", probably owes its name to the cremation ceremonies once held here; the ruins of the small chedi along the western side of the temple were used to house the ashes of the most importan..

  • 9 Sawankha Waranayok Museum Interesting

    Museums and art

    Si Satchanalai has been renowned for its ceramics since the 13C. The Sawankha Waranayok Museum pays tribute to the skilled potters who lived in the villages of Ban Ko Noi and Ban Pa Yang, attracted here by the high quality of the clay. Trained by Chi..
