Yap..been there last dec during a backpacking trip. Was there to visit the ruins....think i stayed at one of the guesthouse for 2~3 days. Very rundown town, compared to the places like chiangmai or bangkok.
Well, if u intend of going there, there are a few ways of getting there. Think it is easier for you to start from bangkok rite?
i) Go to the Northern Bus terminal at Bangkok( Take a cab or bus there) and seek for bus tickets to sukothai. About a few hours ride.(can't exactly remember how long)
ii) Go to the train station( err..think is the one near chinatown), and seek for tickets to sukothai.
ii) or as suggested in the lonely planet guide, take a luxurious boat ride down the chao phya river there. think quite a long ride. But very nice.
Anyway, I got there from chiangmai by bus. and must say it's a very nice place to visit. oh ya, not to mention that it is one of the world's heritage site.
If need more info, you could easily get them from the lonely planet guide.
