Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo, Sri Satchanarai Historical Site, Sukothai, Thailand.
This place is a great site, but I only recommend it if you can come in your own car. I arrived on the bus, and the drop-off point left me with a four kilometer walk to the site.
The remoteness of it was a mixed blessing though, the place was empty and the quiet was a big plus to the enjoyment of it. The stillness of it added quite a bit to the feeling of the history of it, what it was, what it might have been before it became, well, a ruin. Notice the bird-sounds, that's a benefit that I don't often get in my citified life.
