If you are in Bangkok visiting these ruins is an excellent day trip. We opted to take a car there (arranged by our hotel in Bangkok) and a boat (ended up being a long boat) back. This was the best decision. I very much enjoyed seeing the ruins and enjoyed the day BUT the boat ride back was a highlight... More

I Love visiting Historical Places and when visiting Bangkok one can never Miss the ruins of Ayuthaya. Once used to be the Kings palace and a Place of Worship, Distroyed during Burma war. A must Visit to see all those Great Pagodas.

About 2 hours drive north of Bangkok the Ayuthaya Ruins are worth the it if you are in to historical architecture as i am. I say this because it is a vast area some of which you have to hire a local tuk tuk to get from some parts to the others, and on a hot day it is not... More

A day in Ayutthaya makes one wonder how majestic the old city was. With towering structures made of bricks reflects the ingenuity the people of Thailand have. I am awe-inspired with the buddha lodged between the trunk of the tree. Truly amazing.

This is a place every tourist in Thailand has to see. It is a monumental old capital of Thailand that was almost destroyed by Burmans. Many temples are scattered around.

We went with a guide from Bangkok to stay there overnight. The ruins of the old capital city are amazing. It's quite a small place nowadays, on the river that eventually flows through Bangkok.

This was amazing attraction in our tour. There are so many things to see here. Wat Na Phra Mane, Wat Lokayasutharam and Wat Maha That. We evenly have a river sun cruise with this tour. The lunch on the cruise was the best we have on a cruise.

We visited Ayuthaya as a day-trip from Bangkok in a private car with a tour guide. I recommend using a tour guide so you can understand the history of the Ayuthaya ruins as it makes it much more significant when you know what you are looking at! The ruins were spectacular and you must make a visit to the buddha... More

We went on a trip to Ayuthya during a recent trip to Bangkok with a private car, driver and guide. It was easily the best trip out of Bangkok . The ruins are magnificent and it was quite sad to see the devastation wrecked on a previously magnificent city. Well worth the 2 hour trip ! I would recommend the... More
