Thuriang Kilns

Worth the ride

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

Several ancient kilns that would have produced the area's famous Sawankhalok ceramics may be found a few kilometres due north of the historical park, scattered among picturesque villages.

While some are little more than a few stones in a field, an excavation site at Ban Ko Noi allows visitors to peer down on ancient kiln sites where centuries' old pottery, some of it still fully intact, can be seen just as it was left by ancient hands.

Admission is 30 baht, and it's a lovely ride to get there past charming stilted homes and sleepy temples. If you would like to see more extensive samples of Sawankhalok pottery, there's a museum some 15 kilometres south in Sawankhalok town, and a collection of excavated ceramics are also on display at Ramkamhaeng Museum back in Sukhothai.
