On the last night of Yefengsong, I went to the restaurant by the lake and ordered a Thai special dish “Cashew Chicken” to treat it, with a total of 160B of rice.
After all, I have to leave this small mountain town-I plan to go to Sukhothai in central Thailand the next day for a day’s travel. Tickets have been bought in the afternoon and at 10 o’clock in the morning, but the new station is quite far away from here. It is a fast-growing city. After dinner, go back to the hotel to surf the Internet and send emails. All major websites in the country can log in here. Talk to the tourists and talk about how they felt during the trip. They didn’t go to bed until very late.
The next morning, I walked around the lake to admire the beautiful pagoda. The boss asked me if I would stay here for another day and shook my head firmly. Because I stayed in Pai for such a long time. So he paid the boss 20B and came to the station in his electric car to say goodbye. At ten o’clock, the “land flight” left the station on time. The car was very empty, but it stopped and stopped all the way until the car was full. It was not until the car was full that it was on the right path.
After passing Pai, I stopped for a while and then moved on. In this way, I arrived at Chiang Mai Station at almost 5 pm. From Chiang Mai to Sukhothai, I originally hoped to take the night train to Pengshiluo, because considering that I went directly to Sukhothai, the last train was at 8 pm, and it might be too late to get there, fearing that it would be a little trouble to find a hotel. After going to Pengshiluo, I would go to Sukhothai from there. As a result, the tickets to Penshiluo have been sold out. There is only one at 9 p.m. and there is still a vacancy. Moreover, the bus to Bangkok either does not pass there or is unwilling to sell midway tickets. Moreover, the people in the station do not seem to have as good a temper as before. It is really strange. Finally decided to take the 17:40 bus to Sukhothai!
The bus left Chiang Mai, passed through the first stop, and soon night fell, passing through Chen Yi, Dafu and other places. It was the 15th of that day. Bright moonlight sprinkled on the earth. Small villages in the distance were faintly visible in the moonlight. The bus was driving at high speed on the broad expressway. This situation was unforgettable. It should be said that the service of this bus is very good. The most touching thing is that the toilet in the bus is broken. The bus was parked beside the miscellaneous grass on the roadside, making it convenient for me to get off the bus and making me feel a little “celebrity treatment”. After that, he finally arrived at Sukhothai, the Buddhist holy land, at 10 o’clock in the evening. Finally, I saw Sukhothai’s Giant Buddha again in the night.
After getting out of the car, At a loss, There is no way out, Immediately someone came up, I was asked to get on his car and tell me that there was still a vacant room in the “Garden Guesthouse”. There was the one I stayed in when I came here last time. Considering that I only stayed here for one night this time, I originally wanted to find a place to live near the station, but after looking for half a day, I didn’t find any place to live. It was so late-it was better to go there, so I paid 50B, got on the car and sped off to the city. After arriving, it was discovered that the inn was still quite empty. The waitress led me to look at the small room upstairs without bathroom, 150B, which was not satisfactory. Then he took me to the wooden guest room in the back garden with bathroom. I chose a fan room, which is still the old price, 300B.. Then I went to the street to buy a fast food, fried noodles, 30B. When I came back, I asked my boss about going to Chanalai-Charing Historical Park in Sisa. The boss said that there was a car to go there at 7: 00 and 9: 00 every morning. Of course, if it was convenient, I could take tuk-tuk, but I certainly wouldn’t do that.
Sukhothai is the first ancient capital of Thailand in the true historical sense, the birthplace of Thailand and the cradle of Thai culture. Sukhothai’s first king founded Thai writing and later, Thai art, culture and laws were also founded here. Therefore, this is also the cradle of Thai culture, but it is strange that the atmosphere of the ancient city today is very weak. Apart from the ruins in the suburbs, we can see the mottled history and the vicissitudes of life of the years. Otherwise, there is no appearance of the ancient city at all.
That night, I drank fruit juice, listened to frogs, and read candle night on the cool balcony in Xiao Mu’s guest room until very late. The next day I slept until 8 o’clock, so I quickly washed, breakfast and checked out-the boss was very helpless. I only stayed in such a good guest room for one night. Who let my schedule be too tight this time? If I come next time, I will definitely stay here! Then it took 20B to take the local characteristic convertible bus to the bus station, where at 9 o’clock every day, a long-distance bus from Pengshiluo to Chiang Rai passes through Xisachanalai-Charing Historical Park. Many tourists go there by this bus.
It took me an hour to stop all the way and get on and off the bus in the small town. When I got to a certain place, I felt a little strange. At this time, the conductor suddenly asked me to get off the bus. It turned out that when I arrived, I was the only tourist who stumbled off the bus.
Walking forward, it was a small grocery store. The boss waved enthusiastically to me by the side of the road and asked me to rent a (self-propelled) car there-oh, finally remembered, this is the place! I rented a car for 30B and gave a map free of charge, so I left my luggage there, traveled light and embarked on the journey happily.
Through this iron rope bridge, the ruins are just over there. The tall Khmer Pagoda is the symbol of the ruins park.
The whole historical park is divided into two parts, one part is called “Charing”, which is on the other side of the river, and the other part is called “Sisachanalai”. It is about 7 kilometers to the right across the river and takes half an hour to get there by bike. Tickets for the two parks totaled 200B, which is an important part of Sukhothai Historical Park, a world cultural heritage. There is a towering pagoda in the “Zhaling” Park, as well as a kind-looking, serene, kind and majestic Giant Buddha.
The kind Buddha is thinking hard:
Looking up at the pagoda:
Lunch under the pagoda:
Under the blue sky and white clouds, the towering pagoda standing on the grass is especially magnificent:
Two brothers in school uniforms under the pagoda:
The environment around the park is elegant, with green grass, green trees and birds and flowers, making * * forget to return. Unconsciously, I spent two and a half hours here, but there was only one 15:20 bus back to Sukhothai in the afternoon, and I had to go to Sisachanalai and have lunch, so the time was a little tight…
After sprinting all the way, after more than 20 minutes, I finally arrived and settled my lunch in a small restaurant beside the ruins.
“Sisachanalai”, here is the largest and most magnificent ring elephant temple in Sukhothai region. The ring elephant temple sits on the grassy grass. The tower foundation is surrounded by elephants, and the tower cone pierces into the sky, giving people a very shocking feeling.
Climbing the pagoda base of Huanxiang Temple, it was very lively that day. Just as a group of primary school students in school uniforms from Thailand also came to visit and filed among the ruins:
Opposite Huanxiang Temple is a Tallinn. In an open space between the woods, dozens of pagodas rise up and set off each other. The spire of the pagoda in the center points directly to the blue sky. It is very majestic and close to the ruins. The majestic momentum makes people hold their breath, concentrate and study carefully.
Tourists stopped in front of the vicissitudes of the pagoda to watch carefully:
Walking among the ruins of the ruins, the passing years have left deep traces on every pagoda here, which makes people feel pity from the center of the earth and sigh with emotion that time flies and time is merciless…
It’s getting late. I just glanced at this ancient site and left here again. Goodbye-the ancient and beautiful Sukhothai site will come again when I have the chance.
After leaving Sukhothai Charing-Sisachanalai Historical Park, I was in a hurry to take the 15:20 bus back to Sukhothai. This time I had only one day here. In the evening, I planned to take a long-distance bus to Bangkok and then from Bangkok to the southern coastal area of Thailand.
Introduction: 1. Arrive at Sukhothai: You can take a bus from Bangkok or Chiang Mai. There are many buses in the passenger transport center in the north of Bangkok. There are direct buses to Penshiluo and some buses to Chiang Mai Chiang Rai through Sukhothai. You can also take a small plane from Bangkok.
2. About sightseeing: Sukhothai Historical Park, you can take an open bus from Sukhothai New Town, 10B, 12km. After that, you can rent a bicycle for sightseeing, 20-30B every day. Sukhothai Historical Park is divided into five districts: Central, East, South, West and North. Each district has 100B tickets. However, I personally feel that only the North and West districts are most worth visiting. If time is short, I will only go to the North and West districts, especially the North District.
As for the Sisachanalai-Charing Historical Park, this site usually used to take the long-distance bus from Peng Shiluo to Chiang Rai from the bus station. It should be noted that there are 8 buses to Chiang Rai (Golden Triangle) via Sukhothai every day, but only the 7: 00 and 9: 00 a.m. buses pass through Sisachanalai-Charing Historical Park. Ask clearly so as not to get on the wrong bus. There are two buses returning to Sukhothai in the afternoon. They stop at the entrance of the park. One is at 14: 00 and the other is at 15: 20. Generally, they pass at 9: 00 in the morning and come back to take the bus at 15: 20 in the afternoon.
3. Regarding accommodation: Sukhothai’s “Garden Guesthouse” is strongly recommended here. The upstairs small room 150-200B without bathroom windows, the wooden fan room 300-350B and the air-conditioned room 500B in the elegant garden are all equipped with bathroom, with good environment and fresh air. In addition, there is a “TR guesthouse” nearby. The room with bathroom is generally 400-500B, and there is also a guesthouse near the bus station. The English letters are square and not easy to identify. The room is generally 300-400B, and the price rises slightly in peak season. In addition, there are high-grade hotels in the new city: “Sukhothai Resort”. After crossing the river, the starting price is 1500B on the other side of Sukhothai’s inland river. There is also Guesthouse next to the Historical Park, but there are only one or two rooms with 500-600B. If you go to Sisachanalai-Charing Historical Park, there are many rural hostels along the rural road between “Charing” and “Sisachanalai”, including a dinner check-in price of 400B B. If you don’t rush on, living there is a good choice.
4. As for eating, Sukhothai cuisine is very common. Thai cuisine does not have many characteristics. Generally, 100B-200B can be eaten well at roadside stalls.
