It was hotter than hell when we visited here. But it was still very cool and interesting to see the ruins here. I thought is was worth the trip from Bangkok to see this place.

I must recommend this place. You feel the old spirit of these ruins and some kind of magic of this place. You can buy cold water, fresh fruit or coconut, take a rest and continue in making photos ;) - you will make a looot of them ;)

We got a train from Bangkok, early in the morning. A short trip. As we had not much time, we decided to hire a tuk tuk near the train station. The driver was very nice. It really worth. The temples are in a very good state, if we consider that it is an ancient city... I strongly recommend to reserve... More

After traveling along the beaches and islands of Southern Thailand, we wanted to take in some of Thailand's rich temple culture before heading back home. We choose Ayutthaya because it is not too far from the international airport in Bangkok. What a good choice it was: a mix of beautiful ruins and lively temples. We took a tuk tuk tour... More

We had previously been to Sukhothai & spent the day riding around on bikes through the ruins. We thought it would be a similar set-up at Ayutthaya, unfortunately the ruins are far more spread out over much larger areas which doesn't make it very easy to navigate around. The Tourism Information Centre had very helpful staff (who speak excellent English)... More

Visited Ayutthaya from Bangkok by catching the minivan from Victory Monument.. only cost us 80 bht (60 on return though??) On arrival we were approached by a freindly tuk tuk driver who agreed to take us around for 200 bht per hour. I don't recall the names of all the temples, but they were all individual as sights to visit,... More

a great destination to learn of the History of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya. The ruins are devestating but beautiful at the same time. So much to see

Well worth a one hour drive north to see the extensive ruins of the old capital. You need a guide to explain all the different sites. We went with Oriental Escapes, booked online, no up front payment required. Our guide and driver were excellent
