We booked a tour of Ayuthaya ruins through Viator. It is about 1 hour outside of Bangkok and the ruins are very interesting. It was worth being on the tour due to the vast knowledge of our guide. Without our guide I don't know if we would have gotten as much of the historical background of this region.

If you are going to sukhothai then im not sure if these are worth going to. The city is pretty uninspiring. The ruins and temples are impressive but might not be worth the stop. Keep going to sukhothai, kampheng phet , and si satachanlai and spend extra time there it is worth exploring.

You will need at least one day to visit everything, pretty close to Bangkok and cheap to go, I went by train by myself. In Ayutthaya you can take a tuk tuk for the whole day (the best way to visit all the ruines), he will take you to the mains ruines, very beautiful, easy, a lot of history, it`s... More

Well worth the visit! Although perhaps on a smaller scale, the expanse & history of Ayuthaya nonetheless reminded me of the ruins of Pompeii, and the architecture of the stupors a good alternative to those in Bagan, Myanmar. Very peaceful and rich in culture. Have good walking shoes and water, as it gets really hot by midday!

Everywhere you look are the most amazing ruins, start early in the day before it gets too hot. Everyone in our party enjoyed this.

Ayuthaya is located about a 90 minute drive from hotels in downtown Bangkok (depending on traffic). It was one (of several) of the former capitals of Thailand. It covers and area of several hectares and consists mostly of the remnants of decaying brick buildings (temples, walls, ect.) at various angles of tilting over. There are stalls at the entrance hawking,... More
