I love biking around these old ruins, and if it gets hot, stop in the shade and read a book for a bit, relaxed and often the big birds will wander closer.

The tour we did was a full day tour with a mob called River Sun Tours. Lots of temples and ruins all of which were quite interesting. The guide did speak English although I rather fancy he thought that the bus load were all Americans so his jokes were very corny with much repetition of the words Tic Toc -... More

Please change it and educate yourself before you make a huge mistake like this in the future. Angkor Wat is what the Temple in Cambodia is called. Thailand have nothing to do with the name. Every temple have their own names and do your research and correct your error. Very disappointment with the information your are providing to people.

No doubt a great place to go to if you like ancient temples and ruins. The structure of construction of the temples were different of those in Cambodia and Indonesia which caused most of the temples to sink in to the ground. However it is still worth a visit to Ayutthaya - away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

If you happen to be in Bkk, day trip to ayuthaya is a must! It is a Unesco World Heritage site, a great place for photography with all the architectures of the ruins. The stories behind the ruins are captivating too.There are hundreds of temples in ayuthaya according to the tourist guide. We took a day trip package from the... More

very beautiful place with amazing sky. I went to Ayuthaya with American friend and French boyfriend. I recommend you rent bicycle to bike around a hundred of temple. The ruin temple around the city with living in the modern age. It's valuable to go.

The ancient ruins in the historic city of Ayuthaya are a great day trip from Bangkok. It is a Unesco World Heritage site and truly dramatic. If you like history and/or architecture, you will not be disappointed. Be sure to get the audio tour for ~ 100THB ($3 USD), which tell you all about the rich history of the place.... More

The number one thing to do in Ayutthaya, most of them are very well kept with budda dresses on, best nway to see them probably is by bicycle which costs 50 baht per day for budget, or mr ouse tuk tuk driver will tak u round them 600 baht for 3 hours

At 1 hour North of Bangkok. It's the city of ancient temples...if you like history. It's the old capital of Thailand. There was a Kingdom. Temples in ruins if not still standing and imposing over the city. The city is so quiet that you can easily go around on a bike. Book it through a travel agency; guide and transportation... More

Maybe it was because I was on the end of my tour in Thailand, but to me this was just ok. I guess once you see a few temples they all kind of look the same. Plus I visited here after being in Chiang Mai which was gorgeous!!! To me I thought Ayuthaya was dirty, people definitely weren't as pleasant... More
