Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai
The airport is a simple runway with no taxiway. Passengers are met by this cute passenger bus for the short ride to the terminal.
The terminal and surrounds are absolutely beautiful.
Small but efficient arrivals terminal. Really beautiful. We are met by our rental car and driver for getting around over the next three days.
We stayed at this beautiful Sukhothai Resort Hotel. Private cabin. Five star ambiance.
Sukhothai Historical Park
Sukhothai Historical Park is located on a lake about 8 miles west of the town of Sukhothai.
Neat stuff for sale at little sheds like this one in front of Wat Sri Cham.
Wat Sri Cham is unusual with a blackened buddha.
Hello and goodbye...

Ever fed a watermelon to an elephant? Stand back - could be messy...
