If you really want to have a peek into the country's past, this is the place to go. I strongly suggest going on a tour, because this province is way too far from Bangkok. But if you have been to Thailand and know your way around, you can have a DIY tour. I see there were some foreigners on rented... More

I chose a day trip organized by Common Tours Ski Bucaw, picked up at 6-30am for the 2hour coach ride. Visiting a Royal palace and several Watts at Ayutthaya, the tour guide was excellent she certainly knew the history of each site giving us all the relevant information without boring us. An excellent lunch was arranged at a local hotel... More

I go for the light of the ruins in the evening and it was so amazing; however, the light will be started during 7-9 p.m. and we are not allowed to walk on the ground due to safety at night.

I liked that the sites around Ayutthaya are all relatively quiet and crowd-free. There were more people around in the afternoon so if you want it to be really quiet go earlier in the day.

Had a great time on the tour to Ayuthaya.....some beautiful Buddha temples there. Also saw the summer palace Bang Pa In on our way to Ayuthaya, stunning buildings and pristine landscaping. The River Cruise by the Chao Phraya was nice too with a Good Buffet Lunch.

The variety of Wat and ruined palaces within a compact area. Freedom to wander at will. Words cannot really do justice to the beauty of architecture.

We hired bikes and rode around the different sites of Ayutthaya. We thought this would be the easiest and cheapest way to get around, but as the signs are mostly in Thai it wasn't quite as easy as we thought. Having said that, we really enjoyed our time in Ayutthaya. The ruins are so beautiful and really atmospheric; you get... More

Centuries old structure and religious images (though many have been destroyed) still inspires awe and respect
