Being to Thailand was one of the most memorable experiences in my life. This temple is located very close to Bangkok and is one of the most representative palaces of Thailand. Very unique and very magic!

Ruins are extensive and the history is incredible. Ayuthaya was the capital of Thailand before the Burmese sacked the city and beheaded the multitudes of Buddha's. The ruins are well preserved and the architecture is amazing

Ayutthaya - the "actual Siam" is a place that you must see if you visit Bangkok, it is about 80 minutes drive from Bangkok. And if you are in Ayutthaya, this Ruins is the top 3 places that you must come and see the great legacy from its history

This was really beautiful and fantastic. This is a compulsory stop if you are visiting Ayuthaya. It's in the city, 5 minutes by motorcycle from the train station. A tip: rent scooters it will save you a lot of time and money. You can get everywhere quickly without a hassle.

We cycled around the ruins,you get a map with the ruins on all numbered, but when you get to a ruin it has no number on the board so it can be quite confusing. Well worth going to

I travelled to Ayutthaya with my Sister in Law who is Thai which made such a difference for me as language became much less of a problem than previous trips. I love street food so that was also great to be with someone who knew what and where to eat for pennies. Ayutthaya was one of many historical sites we... More

The city and ruins are located near to Bangkok,in a wide area, absolutely are the most important historical place in Thailand,nice wether and surrounding,not too much crowded,and not to be missed when you are in Bangkok.There are many temples in the area and thus I chooses a day trip tour to see the most important ones.

In past, Thailand used to have 3 kingdoms: Lana, Sukothai and Ayutthaya. There are some temples and ruins of the royal palace, beatiful places. The ruins are separated, so you have to rent a bike or the most common is to hire a tuk-tuk. Carry lot of cash (baths) because you have to pay around 100 baths for each attraction... More

This park is really fun if you like ruins and old things and you can walk inside one of the temples. It's big with nice surroundings but a bit crowded! I would definitely recommend this but make sure your tuk tuk wait outside otherwise it's quite hard to find one. If they offer you a roundtrip to some attractions you... More

Renting a bicycle and cycling around the ruins of Ayutthaya is a wonderful way to spend a few days. Take in the views along the way, the majesty of the ruins and sample the wonderful food on offer - all excellent. We were there in December during the 10-day Ayutthaya Cultural Festival, held at night-time among the ruins - with... More
