Easy to walk around and see the sights in a morning. The park itself is quiet and if you are interested to visit a temple thoroughly then you have to pay an entrance fee to each temple. We did 2 temples and then just enjoyed the walk around the park.

very atmospheric and lots to explore. A great 'potted' introduction to Thailand - wats, history, elephants, rivers, floating market, sunshine . . . We really liked Ayutthaya (much more natural and interesting than Sukhothai, should you have to choose between them). Only negative being the awful elephant shows and other abusive practices set up to separate tourists from their dollars.

Very special in so many ways and so much to see. You can Tuk tuk, elephant ride or cycle around this vast site. There are headless Buddhas everywhere, a sad reminder of its violent past. There are, as always, the usual shops selling the usual tourist tat, but once you get beyond that you can step back in time and... More

I loved all of the temples, buddhas and open space. This is a great stop after traveling a long distance on your own or a tour bus. One of the coolest parts of the park is the Buddha in the tree. A tree grew up around a sculpture of the Buddha's head which is a pretty amazing sight.

Very interesting and great walk. Can get very hot, so bring plenty of water. Many dogs living wild around the ruins that can be intimidating, but their bark is worse than their bite.

We spent a few days at Ayutthaya and enjoyed seeing the ancient sites and temples. It was easy to walk around or take a tuk tuk to the different areas. It gets hot and dusty during the day, so take plenty of water. We got to explore so many wonderful temples and learned all of their histories, it was a... More

We only stopped one night in the city and found a very nice homestay resort near the park for only 500 baht per night. The owner recommended a boat tour round the park and a set price was agreed with the boat operator, an approved tour guide. She would stop at any of the places on the river you wanted... More

Easy to get to from Bangkok by bus, train or car, the old Siam capital of Ayutthaya is a must visit for anyone interested in Thai history. While the temples are not as well preserved as those in Siem Reap, the number and scale make them worth visiting as well as the location of the old capital in an island... More
