Amazing and interesting touristic attraction. Pretty impressive are the Ancient bonzeries. This old Ayutthaya must be seen

It´s a must have to visit place in Thailand. It´s not that far from Bangkok (you can rent a taxi to spend the whole day in Ayutthaya...but choose well), and you´ll be amazed with the ruins and the history that you´ll find there.

This historical park has great preserved ruins from the civilization of Ayutthaya. The photographs look good. Of course the highlight is the Buddha head with the Banyan tree growing around it. This is a good place to come to appreciate the long history of Buddhism in Thailand.

Founded in the 13th century, the historic city of Ayutthaya was the second capital of the Siamese Kingdom. Once considered among the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan urban areas and a center of global diplomacy and commerce, Ayutthaya enjoyed its golden period from the 14th century before the city was attacked and razed by the Burmese army in 1767 who...

This place is fascinating and breathtaking. I would recommend a few things: - You should take a guided tour, helps you to understand all the hidden meanings of the beautiful places. - You should not do this by bike, particularly if it is a hot day. If you are biking around, you will get a chance to see only small... More

After experiencing the famous Wats in Bangkok, The Ayutthaya Historical Park should not be missed by any tourist in Thailand. With just THB 50, we (a family of 4) experienced the former capital of the old Siam. The temple ruins were just beautiful. In here, you can also see the famous buddha head on a tree, Wat Ratchaburana, Wat Mahathat,... More

We decided to get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok on our own as tours were so pricey and all day! So we caught the skytrain and then the underground to the main train station Hualamphong - we got there and spoke to the helpful man at the ticket booth who got us a ticket in the 2nd class air con cabin...

Ayutthaya Historical Park is extensive. It has many different stuppas that you can choose to visit. If you like historical ruins like I do these stuppas ancient sites are worth the visit. Most of the important one cost 50 Thai Baht to enter which is little over a $1 US Dollar. My suggestion, choose before hand which ones you want... More

Although this is not comparable to Angkor in neighboring Cambodia, Thailand's Ayuttaya Historical Park stands on its own as an example of the great achievements of the ancient world in this part of Asia. Don't limit yourself to the central area of the park where the royal palace was located, but be sure to visit nearby ruins and temples along... More
