New Sukhothai

Most of new Sukhothai's backpacker-friendly accommodation, restaurants, bars and so on are just over the Phra Ruang Bridge on the west side of the Yom River. Once you get to this area, everything is a short walk, including the small night markets to the east of the river. Due to competition, Sukhothai's accommodation scene is truly a buyers' market — expect better value than is typically found in many other parts of the country.

Old Sukhothai (near the historical park)

The area directly east of the historical park's main gates has seen a steady rise of tourist-oriented restaurants and places to stay in recent years. We still favour the more extensive food scene of new Sukhothai, but there are a couple of budget guesthouses very close to the ruins and a handful of more flash spots down a quiet side road less than one kilometre to the west. With a few more resorts being built in this area, it appears there will be more to choose from in coming years, and we wouldn't be surprised if a full-scale town materalises within the next few decades.
