The tour we took via Viator was worth the cents. We departed from Novotel Platinum Bangkok where a mini pickup van picked us to the meeting location. We then alighted and board the coach bus to travel 1.5hrs to Ayuttaya. Along the way, the friendly tour guide furnished us with lots of current and historical information. It was a good... More

I went here with my friend from England, we hired bicycles for the day (30the) and we cycled around the whole town and the ruins. We had a great day and the area is actually really nice and so are they local people who inhabit it. It's worth a day trip out there from Bangkok.

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.
