Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park
Kamphaeng Phet has a single major tourist attraction which is its Historical Park. Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park has been accredited with UNESCO World Heritage site status jointly with two other similar sites in the same region. Despite this, Kamphaeng Phet and it Historical Park get relatively few visitors in comparison to better known historical parks such as Ayutthaya Historical Park and Sukhothai Historical Park.
The absence of large numbers of visitors is not, however, an indicator that Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park isn’t worth visiting, in fact it’s well worth visiting. The reason so few people go there is more because it is not as well advertised as other major historical parks in Thailand.
Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park has two zones, one in the town centre and one a few kilometres to the north. The town centre section of the historical park is the smallest with 14 structures and monuments to see. If you only have short amount of time then definitely go the town centre part of the park as this has the two most impressive ruins, which are Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Phra That.
The section of the historical park to the north of the town centre has around 40 old buildings to see spread out over a much larger area. Many people hire a bike to get around the northern zone of the park to save walks of up to 20 minutes between the various temples and monuments.
