Ayutthaya or Sukhothai or both?
15th July, 2009
At the end of my SEA trip I have one week left before I fly home from Bangkok.
I arrive at BKK airport on the evening of Oct 23rd and fly out from BKK airport on Oct 30th. So if I spend the first and last night in Bangkok that only leaves me 5 days to somewhere else.
I understand Ayutthaya is very close to Bangkok but Sukhothai is about 5-6 hours away. So is there one to be preferred over the other or is it worth seeing both?

with those five days to spend you've certainly got time to see both, and both are worthwhile destinations. sukhothai is the more remote and perhaps romantic spot, but ayutthaya is a UNESCO world heritage site for a reason too.
if you were going to see both, i'd do sukhothai first, and then work my way back to ayutthaya.
another option for those five days could be kanchanaburi, if you haven't been there before, then over to ayutthaya for a day or two before returning to bangkok. regards.

But Bangkok itself has plenty to see and plenty to do. It's a major cosmopolitan city with lots going on. Great nightlife and the sites around the Chao Praya river are worth visiting.

Any recommendations for budget accommodation in Sukhothai.
In the region of 400B - 500B per night.
