Sukhothai Historical Park (Source: Internet)
Sukhothai Historical Park has been set to be the first cultural heritage with low carbon dioxide in Thailand.

The project is being expedited for completion this December before it is officially open as pilot park in January 2016.

The low-carbon park project was conceived by the Cultural Ministry under its strategy to make historical parks nationwide an environmentally-firendly heritage.

Under the plan, Si Satchanalai Historical Park, KamphaengPhet Historical Park and Sukhothai Historical Park are the first three targets to be made low-carbon parks.

To fulfil the project, the 5-km inner road of Sukhothai Historical Park is being renovated. The park will have only one gate to be used as both entrance and exit, and no oil-engined vehicles will be allowed on its territory. The changes will force visitors to use electric trams stationed at ten points across the park or alternatively use bicycles.

A bunch of local product shops will be located by the sole gate where local residents can earn more income, selling souvenirs and native products to tourists.-NNT/VNA
