About Travel to Kamphaeng Phet
Kamphaeng Phet is medium sized town in the lower part of Thailand’s Northern Region with a population of under 30,000 permanent residents. The most notable feature of the town is its Historical Park Park which, jointly with Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai Historical Parks, has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. From the 13th to 17th Centuries Kamphaeng Phet was an important military garrison town established to defend the Kingdom of Sukhothai, and later the Kingdom of Ayutthaya, from attacks by Burmese armed forces. During this period a range of significant temples and palace were constructed in Kamphaeng Phet, and then abandoned in the late 18th Century after the fall of the Ayutthaya Kingdom and the relocation of the capital city to Bangkok.
Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park has two parts. The Central Zone of the park, located in the town centre, covers an area of slightly under 85,000 sqm and features 14 ruins. The most famous of these 14 ruins is Wat Phra Kaew which features 3 Sukhothai style statues of the Lord Buddha noteable for their large almond shaped eyes. The Northern Zone of the park, located 5.5 km by road to the north of Kamphaeng Phet Bus Terminal, covers a much larger area of around 2,500,000 sqm and has 40 ruins. Many visitors choose to rent a bicycle to visit the Northern Zone because its some distance between each ruin. A separate entrance fee of 100 THB needs to be paid for each zone of the park which is collected at the main entrance point to each zone.
