Sukhothai was founded as the great Khmer empire, which had held sway for thousands of years, went into decline.Some Thais sentimentally perceive this era to have been a cultural golden age in Thailand’s history. Bangkok the capital of Thailand, is a metropolis where one can find both old and new, East and West, traditional and fashionable, blended together in a harmonious way.
