There are so many ruins in the area that it may be hard for tourists to choose which ruins to visit. Joining a tour group may be a good idea for Ayutthaya Ruins. Our one-day tour includes the Summer Palace, three Ayuthaya ruins, a pleasant bus ride from Bangkok, and a three-hour river cruise back to Bangkok with a delicious... More

There are a lot of ruins in the city. Pick the three or four that you'd most like to see, or you'll have temple-fatigue to add to heat-stroke! We hired a tuktuk for 200bht an hour, which took us around, and worked well for us (with children).

Seeing Ayuthaya was very nice with amazing landscapes and ruins. It is easy to go by train from Bangkok but I would advise not to return very late because the train will be crowded from locals returning from work and the train could have better conditions. Without any doubt, Ayuthaya is a place to visit to develop the cultural knowledge... More

An excellent day learning more about Thai history. Make sure you get a green pancake with sugar floss in it because they are delicious.

Ayuthaya for sure is a nice place or better to say has nice places. Most of the big temples cost you an entry fee (up to 500 baht). There are a few small temples that are ignored by most tourists, but actually they are really nice. Plus it's quiet there as there are no people. You should try to find... More

Ayutthaya has a lot to offer in terms of history, culture, religion and architecture. Budhdha's head, recliding Buddha, Stupas and the ruins show the richness of the erstawhile Ayuttaya kingdom.

A must see for history lovers or Thai culture lovers. The historical park covers the 800 year old city, that served as Thailands capital for 400 years and has stood in ruins for the last 250 years. The structures are grand and breath taking, there are a huge number of building and sights including palaces and temples full of ancient... More
