Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Sukhothai is an ancient capital of Thailand, which translates to “dawn of happiness.” A very fitting name as any adventure traveler who finds themselves here will be happy no matter what time of the day they visit. The ideal way to visit the ancient city is by bicycle. Rent a bike in town for about a buck and you are good to go. Sukothai is found along the Bangkok to Chiang Mai train line. Get off at Phitsanolouk and get a bus to Sukhothai. The ancient village is about 12 kilometers from the actual town of Sukhothai, so another connection is needed. If you have trouble finding it just ask a local. They are used to farangs in this neck of the woods trying to find the ancient city.
