It is an epiphanic experience bordering beyond awe!

The bus arrived on time and took us to Ayutthaya. Of course, we went to the presidential palace before this. I almost wish that I had taken two trips, each concentrating on each place. The ruins in the park are barely a mention of the expanse of Ayutthaya at its zenith. These monuments to culture are spread over many, many... More

If you are a traveler who loves history, then don't miss the opportunity to see this UNESCO site! I liken it to an Asian Pompeii because it's an extensive property, historically significant and is extensive. But do you homework so that you maximize the visit. Hire a guide, download detailed maps and information, etc. We walked all over it on... More

This is quite an interesting place. It could be improved by providing more background information about Thai history and the relevance of these ruins in the bigger picture.

A really beautiful place, it can be very tiring in the heat so plenty of water and a hat is a must. Everywhere you turn there is another breathtaking photo opportunity. There is a lot of water around the site so another tip is use repellant, or maybe it's just me the Mosquitos like. You really do need more than... More

We only went to Ayutthaya for a day which we felt was a mistake, it was such a beautiful place. There was so much to see I feel at least 2 days here would be much better. This park is a must, the ruins are very moving and show a different side to Thailand. The park behind is rife with... More

Caught train from Hua Lampong station in Bangkok to get there, although there is also other options included a minibus. We opted for third class at 20baht each. Once there do not get tempted by tuk tuks, just walk directly across the road, walk the path and hop on a ferry across the river for 5baht. There is bikes for... More

Amazing site to visit. I must when visiting Bangkok. Not that far from the "New" capital & historically a really nice place to visit. Include the Buddha in the tree & the reclining Buddha during your visit. A very charming place to visit.

Took a trip outside Bangkok with a local travel guide - Tour with Tong - to visit these magnificent ruins. Thoroughly enjoyed walking through them to gain a better understanding of Siam's history and achievements. Got some of the greatest pictures during a one week trip to Thailand that rivals those from Rome or throughout Europe. One must take time... More

Very nice to see all the history this place includes. We rented a tuktuk for 2 hours and raced around seeing everything it has to offer! The tuktuk was only 200 BAHT.

This is a nice park with several lakes and of historical import. It's a place where you can take an elephant ride or listen to music, visit Wat Prha Ram, or just walk around. This park is huge so wear comfortable shoes. Suggest you take a cab from the train station.
