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

I couldn't remember how many temple I had visit and names of those. Each has different style and it's unique architecture. Also some of the ruin didn't have signs to explain its history. I was glad to be able to see these beautiful ruin and temple, very unique. Once in my live time, worth every breath!!!

Spectacular remains of old Siam's capital. You can still see the black sooty scorch marks when the Burmese army destroyed and burned the place to the ground in the 1300s. This has to be Asia's version of ancient Rome. I recommend you stay at least 3 to 4 days in order to see everything. There are great photo opportunities, but... More

We took a van from Bangkok to Ayuthaya which took about 90 minutes. They dropped us off where we found a group of tuk-tuk drivers. After negotiating a price to see 4 of the local attractions we were off. Our final stop of the day was the Ayuthaya Ruins which was very impressive. I would recommend doing the audio tour... More

If you are an enthusiast of Buddhist culture and ruins of ancient architecture, this is a MUST visit city. It is better to spend at least one full day to cover most important locations. However, it may not be very suitable for small children as the climate is very hot and humid. All in all, it reminded us of our... More

I love biking around these old ruins, and if it gets hot, stop in the shade and read a book for a bit, relaxed and often the big birds will wander closer.
