Day 2 of Trip to Sukhothai & Kamphaeng Phet

This is the second day of my trip with UNESCO to see firsthand the results of the training course for guides at world heritage sites. On the first day we were guided around Sukhothai Historical Park (click here for the tweets). On the second day we visited Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park, which is about an hour to the south. All of the guides are local people and it's great that UNESCO are lending their support to help Thais to preserve their heritage for future generations.

    So you missed the third part of that world heritage site, the historical park in Si Satchanalai, also very worth visiting and much quieter than Sukhothai – both Kamphaeng Phet and Si Satchanalai are much less on the itinerary of tourist tours than Sukhothai itself.

    That is good to promote Kamphaeng Phet. It is a amazing place (especially the Wat Phra Kaew with its 3 Buddha images) and not many foreigners come here.
    And I also love the city’s atmosphere.
