Visited the Ayuthaya ruins in 2014. The ruins date from about 150 CE to 1767 CE, when it was destroyed by raiding armies that sacked the city. The city is located on an island, surrounded by a moat. It is located about 1.5 hours north of Bangkok by car, although it can be accessed by bus or train as well.... More

Ayuthaya is just a bus ride outside Bangkok. My family of 5 availed the tour from a local tour huide provider, cheaper when you availed it from your travel agent by the way. You will visit temples that you think maybe the same the one in Bangkok but the story behind it is totally different. If you are kin and... More

Our trip to Ayuthaya has been filled with great history as told by our guide. It was enriching. The ruins are worth experiencing, I'm happy to have visited this place.

We went to Ayutthaya in July 2014 and it was one of the best experience i have had since i have been living in Thailand! We wanted to experience "real" Thailand so we went to Ayutthaya by train. We took the 20 baht tickets in third class and we have not regretted it! Windows fully open, ceiling fans and the... More

This is a good place to visit if you're interested in historical places in Thailand. I definitely recommend reading up on this city and it's history before you visit, otherwise you might just feel kind of lost. I took a tuk-tuk around for 3 hours and paid B600 by myself. If you're savvy, maybe you can end up paying less.... More

This was our third visit to Old Sukothai and we still ove it a lot. I'm not into new age, but this is one of the places on earth where some underground good-vibe stream must cross. The place is peacefull and restfull and it's great to cycle around between the ruins for a half or full day. Make sure you... More
