We hired a tour guide along with his Tuk-Tuk (tricycle motorized cart) for a visit to the Sukhothai Historical Park ruins which date back to 13th. century.  Amazing architecture and construction and quite incomprehensible how the people of that era were able to layout the site, design, and draw and construct this facility with such precision and reality to withstand the test of time and elements.

The Sukothai Ruins are one of Thailand's most impressive World Heritage sites.  The park includes remains of 21 historical sites and four large ponds within the old walls, with an additional 70 sites within a 5 km radius.  The original capital of the first Thai Kingdom was surrounded by three concentric ramparts and two moats bridged by four gateways
