Ayutthaya speaks for its self! Among all its attractions, this might be the first one. You will see what's left after the city was attacked by the Burmese army in 1767. They literally burned the city to the ground. And yet, it's a UNESCO World Heritage. You won't regret the visit. While in Ayutthaya, look around for the other interesting... More

Right next to Wat Phra Si Sanphet this complex is extensive with much to see in the grounds. The explanation boards usually have a commentary in English as well as Thai. It can be a peaceful site if you do not visit on the same day as hoards of scouts and girl guides.

The place is well entertained and worth the visit even for a full day trip. Being accompanied by a guy is needed to understand the history

One of the most visited places in Ayuttaya. The site is beautiful and still in a pretty good shape. The weather is very hot and there is not much shade around therefore prepare plenty of drinking water and a nice pair of walking shoes would be ideal. The steps are also very hot because of the sun heating them up... More

Situated at the centre of Ayutthaya's historical Park right next to the working temple of Wat Phra Mongkhon Bophit, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is widely discernible because of its three beautiful(ly restored) stupas/chedis. Admission fee 50 Baht. Take time to wander around the large enclosure.

This temple site is one of the largest in the area, you have to pay to enter but is worth it as there is plenty to see, just a shame the local kids climb all over the temples here.
