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

The temples are nice. However, do not expect too much if you have already seen Angkor Wat in Siem Reap.

We took a bus from Bangkok to Ayutthaya and once we arrived a taxi driver offered to drive us wherever we wanted for 5hrs for a flat fee. We opted to do that. Great idea. We went to all of the ruins and he even took us to get lunch (which we offered to buy for he and his wife).... More

My wife and I loved Ayutthaya, the ruins, the temples, the Buddha head in the tree, the reclining Buddha - so many sites but all unique in their own right. We got a mini bus from BKK to Ayutthaya, whilst the town is small and the main sites are navigable on foot I think the town is best explored on... More

The historical site of Ayutthaya is really worth the trip from Bangkok. As the old capital of Thailand, you can get a glimpse of what it must have been in the past.
