How to get there 

Again, the park is on the opposite side of Ramkhamhang National Museum.

To get there, you can just take an old-line truck and the driver will give you a ride to Sukhothai Historical Park.

If you have a car, you can drive along the Highway No.1 and No.101, sequently. You have to go through Pran Kratai County and Kirimas County for about 440 kilometres

From Bangkok, You may get a tour bus from Mochit Station too. That will be fine. But the travel time will be very long, probably 7 hours. If you get exhausted easily, then this shouldn’t be your choice, same as driving a car yourself. Be sure to be in perfect health if you want to choose any of these methods.
