Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park

Major features in the Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park include archaeological remains of ancient sites such as Muang Chakangrao to the east of the Ping River, Muang Nakhon Chum to the west and Muang Trai Trung some 18 kilometres from the town to the southwest. Services from the Tourist Centre are available, the center itself being located some 5 kilometres from town on the Kamphaeng Phet-Phran Kratai route.

Chakangrao, the ancient Kamphaeng Phet town, had the same town planning concept as the old Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai, with separate zones for religious sites both within and outside of town limits. Structures are usually large and made of laterite. Religious sites on the west bank of the Ping River at Nakhon Chum are built of bricks and of smaller size
