Photographer's Note

I'm back after quite a loong break. My last post on TE was just before going to Thailand in March. Since returning to the UK we have also travelled in England and Scotland. I have spent many hours PPing all the images I have taken in the intervening weeks, and have many new images on my website. For the latest posts on my website check out the ‘latest uploads’ page for directions.

Sukhothai was Siam’s (As Thailand was known) first capital city up until the end of the 15th century, when it was abandoned in favour of Ayutthaya. The original city of Sukhothai was surrounded by walls with four gates, but the whole city went into decline and was left for the jungle to take over until it was re-discovered in the 19th century. Since then it has been fully excavated and made into a Historical Park with ruins of the Royal Palace and many wats, lakes and a moat. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and beautifully kept. Wat Maha That is the most impressive of the wats and covers a large area.

ISO200, FL32mm,

Edit I was reminded by ChrisJ that the best way to get around this huge Historic Park is to hire a bike!
