It took months until I found this rice barge. The effort was worth it: My guests are connoisseurs. They do not want do a temple walking at high temperature, but enjoy the sunset in behind the ruins with a glass of Prosecco from the beautiful Boat. We have not seen all ruins during those 2 hours but much real "lifestyle"... More

Went to see a few of the ruins by tuk tuk, lots of history and ambience especially as some were in pretty good shape but they are spread out so give it a few hours, you can do it in an afternoon (although bear in mind some places close at 5 and some at 6

Must visit the Ayuthaya ancient temple ruins. Recommend to take a Tuk Tuk to visit around the temples. But have to pay 50 baths for each temple entry.

You really want to see all of this before leaving Thailand. We biked many Wats and Temples on a 3 hour tour of Ayuthaya. They are very beautiful with a great deal of history.

These ruins are lovely, more in the style of Angkor Wat and Cambodian historical sites. The only down side is that they are spread out, not only within Ayutthaya, but outside. If you're not going to Cambodia, they are definitely worth the visit. There is a fee for some of the sites. We took a Tuk Tuk around to see... More

The ruins of Ayuthaya are different from other temples all over Thailand (which are mostly modern or modernized). This is a glimse to the past and worth the visit.

I had heard about Ayutthaya but nothing prepares you for the historical sites that you see once you are there! The temples are amazing. It feels like being in a movie when you are there. A place truly worthy of being a UNESCO heritage site.

Do not miss this exiting archaeological buildings which reveals you a history over 600 years. The archaeological department has added features for few sites which ruins the archaeological value.

We visited the ruins during a day trip from Bangkok. Totally worth it! Its soothing and calm to walk through over and around the ancient buildings after spending time in the loud and noisy city. The Ruins are illuminated at night which is nice, but the best time to be there is late afternoon to early evening as the sunset... More
