Historic Town of Sukhotai and Associated Historic Towns 素可泰歷史城鎮與相關歷史城鎮

Sukhotai, Thailand, UNESCO World Heritage Site


素可泰也是一個令人驚艷的地方。

Sukhotai is a amazing place.

它算是泰國的發源地,如果沒有素可泰,應該就沒有泰國。

It is the resource where Thai Country begin, if that was no Sukhotai, I think Thai culture wouldn’t been occured.

因為偏遠,所以它所保留的遺跡,似乎比較沒有被破壞掉。因此,有很多很漂亮,有傳統的一具具佛像,都還保留的好好的。這地方在曼谷的北方,離曼谷開車要開八小時左右。這個地方也被刻意的不被開發,保留成為一個小鎮。所以感覺非常的純樸。

It is too far away from the city. so the legency here would not been broken. so we can see many treasure here. like the Buddhism curving or some traditional curving. This please is northen from Bangkok, and you have to drive about 8 hours to be here. it just a small town, so I think the living style here should be sample.

其實,來到這邊的過程,以及要如何來到這裡,之前我有發表過類似的東西,所以在這裡,就不要再重復了。我想要來寫這地方給我的感覺。

I don’t want to describe how I be here, and and process of this trip. because I’ve already wrote it before. so this time, I would like to write about my feeling of this place.

素可泰絕對是一個自成一格,非常,非常泰國的地方。也是一個十分讓人驚豔的地方,他的藝術價值實在是很高,很少有地方能夠像這地方一樣讓我覺得處處有驚喜的感覺。

Sukhotai is a unique place, There are not any place where can instead it. It is not only provide Thai culture. and the value of Art is also high. This place made me feel amazing all the time.

而素可泰又跟吳哥又有很明顯的不一樣的感覺,他的雕刻,他所用的建材等等,雖然我不知道兩者的區別,但用肉眼看,就知道是很明顯的不一樣。我覺得西昌寺跟柬埔寨的巴戎寺,都是讓我嚇到下巴掉下來的變態建築。

People might feel that Sukhotai is almost like Angkor in Cambodia. but it is not. In fact, the material, the curving style, they are all different. it is two totally different style for two culture. but that all made me feel shock, and they are all SICK building for me.

其實想想,人,實在是很厲害,在世界的各個角落,都有一些非自然的建築或者是奇景,從最古老的埃及法老王,金字塔,到現代的雪梨歌劇院,自由女神,或者是現在的杜拜塔…….人,似乎沒有變過,一直想要在所處的這個時代,為了成就某些事情,不斷的在所屬的土地留下印記。每個奇妙的建築,背後一定都會有原因,有可能是為了軍事行動,有可能是為了宗教信仰,有可能是因為愛情故事,也有可能是因為紀念特殊的事情……..等等。往往,因為很單一的理由,而成就這樣的一個建築。

I think, the human is really amazing. I mean if you see around the world, you can see that’s many unnatural building. for example, the pyramid in Egypt in the past or the Opera house in Sydney in the mordent world, People always want to achieve some goal, to keep make some amazing building. It has their own story for build up. some might be military issue, some for the religion, some for the love story….ect. anyway, people make up the building for sample reason.

成就這些建築的同時,也藉此印證了當時國力的強大,並且展示了這個地方的國力與人口。於是乎,這個地方的人口越來越多,地越來越少,空間越來越擠,越來越多限制,越來越少自由。

People achieve the goal to finish built up those building, can also prove that how strong of the country at that time. It can also shows people the population and the power to other countries. so, it makes this place to getting more and more people to move in, and the land here become less and less. and the space are getting close, It also makes more limit, and less freedom.

而當人們自以為這樣叫做先進,並沾沾自喜時,這時,大自然突然間又出了一題,可能是別國的侵犯,可能是疾病,可能是…….. 然後,很多地方,就這樣,變成了廢墟……。

When people think they are great to overcome the environment, but in fact, it is not. The environment might give the people another test to overcome, for example, the sickness, or some other country tried to attack you. then, this place has been destroyed, and people are getting forget this place.

吳哥窟是如此,馬丘比丘是如此,庫司科是如此,蘇佩古城也是如此。當然,素可泰,也是如此。

so now we have Angkor, Machu-Piccu, Cusco or Carlos of Supe, and also, Sukhotai.

素可泰是我很喜歡的一個點。因為地點偏遠的關係,相較起來,他比較沒有那麼多的觀光客,很寧靜。但他真的是很有,很有以前泰國帶給我們的印象—大象是神聖的,小乘佛教……等。是一個跟曼谷相較起來,比較純樸,比較安靜的一個地方。而且這個區域雖然非常的大,但外面也有腳踏車的租借的服務,所以我還滿愛的。騎在路上,感覺很寧靜,而要到那裡就騎到哪理,十分方便。我覺得如果多花幾天留下來玩,也是一個選擇。

I really love Sukhotai. because this place is really far away, so it is very quiet here.and if you want to find out the orginal Thai culture, then you must come here once, then I believe you will out find some impress that we felt in child hood, like the elephant, and the Theravada Buddhism……ect. This place is very sample, and easy place. Sukhotai Historic Park is really big, and outside the park, you can find out the rentiing bicycle store. it makes you can get easy to visit this place. I think it is also good choise to stay here few more days.

素可泰是一個相對寧靜的地方

在素可泰園區外,有一個叫西昌寺的地方,是我的最愛,因為這裡不算是大點,而且距離素可泰還真有一小點的距離,一般觀光客比較不會走到這裡,所以有更顯得寧靜。但很多歐美人士因為LP的關係,而知道了這個地方,所以這裡是少數外國觀光客比亞洲觀光客多的地方。而且,似乎大家都是騎腳踏車來這裡,還滿妙的。

There is a place called Si-Chun Wat, which near by Sukhotai Historic Park. This is my favor place. because this is not that famus place. so the normal tourism might not be here. but many backpackers ride the bicycle here. to see this amazing tample.

我來這裡來了兩次,因為第一次是中午來的,這時的西昌寺雖然看起來是很驚艷沒有錯,但總少了那麼一點寧靜的Feel…..第二次是下午五點多,下完雨後,趕快過來。五點多人就比較少了,但這時的西昌寺,也跟中午的不太一樣。有可能是夕陽的關係,佛像的顏色變了,變成有點透紅的感覺,跟中午的西昌寺是完全不一樣,而且,真的多了一份寧靜感。I Love this feeling!!!

I went here twice a day. the first time was at the lunch time, Wat Si-Chun was makes me feel amazing, but I felt it has some feeling wrong, so I came here second time, which is around 5 o’clock in the afternoon. it rains before. so it was very comfortable when I arrive. the buddha looks different—the color has changed by the sun set, It looks more beautiful and more quitely this place, I love this feeling.
