Situated in Northern Thailand, the ruins of the capital city of the ancient Kingdom of Sukhothai (1238-1438) are a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and are a world famous tourist attraction. It is arguably the most famous cultural attraction in the country. Sukhothai is where Thai civilization as we know it first evolved and where Hinduism and Buddhism collided and began to permeate each other (or at least co-mingle) in the particular way that is unique to the region.
