A hidden gem one hour away from Bangkok. If you are heading to bangkok, avoid all the mainstream activities and take a day trip here. It will be worth it. The spectacular ruins is just a sight to behold. With lesser popularity and crowds, this makes a better place compared to angkor wat

We hired a local boat guide who took us round the site by river stopping at any of the historical sites we wanted to look at, each one has a mooring station so its pretty easy to get out and look around, we found the local guide very knowledgeable and pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We only stopped... More

A place that you need to visit! So close to Bangkok and so different, a very rich cultural experience that you can't miss. A good break from crowded Bangkok. I would suggest avoiding the organised tours from Bangkok as it is very easy and safe to get there by local train... it gives you also the opportunity to see the... More

If you are in Bangkok and want to take a day trip to see some wonderful sites you really have two choices (in my opinion) the floating market or Ayutyhaya. Now the floating market is interesting it is truly a tourist activity. However Ayutyhaya is a destination onto it self. Should you choose to go there, all you need to... More

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
