Day 2  The best time of day to see the old city of Sukothai is early in the morning. There is an option of driving or taking a bicycle to tour around the ancient ruins. We try to cover as many sites as possible but you will still have enough time to appreciate and photograph each site. The most famous and impressive are Wat Mahathat, Wat Trapang Ngoen, Wat Sri Sawai and Wat Si Chum. After touring Sukothai, drive to Phitsanuloke to see the famous Phra Buddha Chinnarat, much revered not only by the people of Phitsanuloke but also the people of Thailand. Lunch is taken in Phitsanuloke. In the afternoon visit the Buddha making foundry and the Dr. Thawi Folklore Museum with its extensive collection of implements used in Thai households and on Thai farms in the past. Drive back to Chiang Mai or take a flight if schedules permit. (B,L)
