Explore Sawankhalok, a charming riverside historical village of Sukhothai province, on foot. Savor on delicious local dishes prepared by multi-generations family restaurants. Sawankhalok became a major port town and commercial hub of the Sukhothai Kingdom (1238 – 1438 CE) thanks to some Chinese merchants who made Sawankhalok home. Strolling in the village, you can sense the atmosphere of its heyday. The village has become a live museum in another word! Old architecture has been preserved and several historical buildings have turned into museums. Chinese cultural influence has a deep root here. The Chinese-Thai dishes cooked with old family-recipes at Sawankhalok rank the best in Sukhothai province, keeping every visitor’s tummy happy!
