Sukhothai achieved its golden era under the 3rd King - Ramkhamhaeng, who also created the Thai alphabet and language. If you are wondering who is King Ramkhamhaeng - he is the guy at the back of your 20 Baht bill.

This is a good starting point before you enter the park . There is some good artifacts but unless you are a true historian I wouldn't linger more than an hour . There is so much more to see outside!!

This museum is full of ancient stuff like Buddha statues from many places. There are English and Thai description in every exhibition so don't worry about misunderstanding things. You need at least 1.30 hrs to explore all.
