A lot of ancient red brick. can hire a bicycle to get around. Most people do at least visit here even if it is only the once.

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.

The tour we did was a full day tour with a mob called River Sun Tours. Lots of temples and ruins all of which were quite interesting. The guide did speak English although I rather fancy he thought that the bus load were all Americans so his jokes were very corny with much repetition of the words Tic Toc -... More

Please change it and educate yourself before you make a huge mistake like this in the future. Angkor Wat is what the Temple in Cambodia is called. Thailand have nothing to do with the name. Every temple have their own names and do your research and correct your error. Very disappointment with the information your are providing to people.

No doubt a great place to go to if you like ancient temples and ruins. The structure of construction of the temples were different of those in Cambodia and Indonesia which caused most of the temples to sink in to the ground. However it is still worth a visit to Ayutthaya - away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

The ancient ruins in the historic city of Ayuthaya are a great day trip from Bangkok. It is a Unesco World Heritage site and truly dramatic. If you like history and/or architecture, you will not be disappointed. Be sure to get the audio tour for ~ 100THB ($3 USD), which tell you all about the rich history of the place.... More
