Sukhothai: where happiness resides

A typical scene in Sukhothai: Wake up at 6 am and bike around the awe-inspiring Sukhothai National Park and you will come across monks in saffron robes wandering around and people handing them food  – a serene sight to witness.

Sukhothai means “dawn of happiness”. I can attest to why this UNESCO World Heritage Site and crade of Thai civilisation got its name. The moment I saw a glimpse of the land a strange sense of joy overwhelmed me – it was such a feeling of lightness that everywhere I looked I couldn’t help but smile. It’s true.

I stayed in Sukhothai for a few days – one of those laid-back travels when I just took my time to bike around, visit the national museum (Ramkhamhaeng museum, which contains one of the most amazing artefacts I’ve seen so far), spend the setting sun at one of the museum park’s amazing architecture and take in the surroundings.
