We arrived on. Long tail boat and what an amazing sight with the red of the bricks in the morning sun. It is truly breath taking when you take in to consideration how old it is. They have done a really good job of keeping and retaining it's integrity. It's great to walk around looking at each of the different... More

Red brick building as we see almost all the ruin in Ayuthaya. The only left of this ruin are entrance and big building like hall but no roof. We didn't use the guide, but our tuk-tuk driver said that this building used to be big hall in the past. Entrance fee for this temple is 50bath.

This was an interesting place to visit, We could have spent more time there but were on a tour so had to move on.

After visiting many temples during our travels in SE Asia, this ruin/temple was just more of the same. Blistering sun didn't make the experience any better, nothing to make it stand out.

Big hall with ruined walls and without roofs. A couple of stupa style pagodas are remained. If you have enough time for whole day tour in Ayuttaya, then visit here.

This Temple is worth the visit. You have to pay an entrance fee, but if you are going to visit only a few temples, then this one is worth the visit.

In the evening right after arriving in Ayutthaya by bus from Sukhothai, I walked over to the old part of the city to visit this complex as its all lit up and you can still go inside. Chances are, you will have the complex to yourself as all the day trippers from Bangkok have already left - meaning you should... More

At first glance im not interested to visit here. But i was wrong, it was worth ! This temple have steep step to go to the top of the temple. It also have the small stairs to underground level of the temple (but i didnt go,i was alone,haha). Overall this temple is worth to visit along the tour.

Many people who visit Ayutthaya skip Wat Ratchaburana because of the restoration work going on. However, it is really worth the visit. It isn't as big as the surrounding ruins, but I think it is one of the best by far. At this site, you can actually venture inside the ruins which I found gave me a great experience. Read... More
