About Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park
Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site that also encompasses Sukhothai Historical Park and Si Satchanalai Historical Park. The Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park has a total of 54 structures built between the 13th and 17th Century during the era of the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya Kingdoms, which were the predecessors of modern Kingdom of Siam whose first capital was Bangkok. During both periods Kamphaeng Phet was a strategically important town with a garrison and defensive city wall maintained to protect Sukhothai and then Ayutthaya from attack by armies from Burma, the main military rival to both the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya Empires.
Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park is divided into two zones, with a separate entrance fee of 100 THB to visit each zone. The zone closest to the city centre, the ‘Central Zone’, is the most visited part of the Historical Park. Although small the Central Zone contains Wat Phra Kaew which has three very striking and well preserved 15th Century Buddha statues that are the most photographed part of the Historical Park. The North or ‘Aranyik’ zone of the Historical Park is located about 1 km north of the Central Zone although the main gate and entrance to the North Zone is 3 km away from the main gate to the Central Zone. The North Zone covers an area of 637 acres with 40 structures to explore. An hour is enough to explore the Central Zone of the Historical Park, however, you need to allow 4 or more hours to see the main sights in North Zone because they are spread out over a large area. Many people choose to visit the Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park on a bicycle for this reason.
