This place has a few decent ruined temples. We visited in the afternoon and it was nice and quiet. Small entrance fee. Interesting to wander around the ruins and it provides a great photo opportunity. If you want to see the best bits (Buddha head in a tree) go in a car or hire a bike as the area is... More

This was our first stop on our foray into northern Thailand and we were suitably impressed. As well as gawking at the ancient ruins, be sure to take in some of the factual stuff too. We had some school kids learning English educate us about how the Burmese ransacked the place for free. If free school children are unavailable, I'd... More

A must see venue. Advice - hire a bicycle, it is a great way to see the sites. Don't try to do it on foot. There are 2 magnificent sites on the other side of the river that should not be missed - Wat Chaiwatthanaram and Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon. From Wat Phra Ram both must be around a hour... More

This is an interesting place to visit. Old Bangkok where it was ruled for 417 years and 'abandoned' as people move to Bangkok city and all around the areas. The tour took us 7am in the morning till 530pm in the evening. Cost TH2100 per person including one lousy buffet lunch in the cruise. They don't refill the food plus... More

Most people recommend you Chiang Mai as the place to go for temples... well, the surroundins of Chiang Mai are better, but Ayutthaya has much more to offer in regard to temples.

This large park contains many interesting buildings, one of which is a huge state of Buddha- almost 50 foot tall. The park is a great place to wander for an hour or so ( if you can tolerate the heat) . There are some shops as well as a reasonable western style toilet (5 bt).

Ayutthaya Historical Park is a must for history buffs. It is a huge complex comprising of temple ruins from the heyday of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya. It is also a welcome alternative to the sites that Bangkok has to offer as Ayutthaya Province is just approx. 1.5 hours from Bangkok by private/charter car. There are no shortage of sites to...

We traveled here by train from Bangkok in 3rd class, more than doable for such a short ride. Arriving in Ayutthaya it's only a short walk from the train station to the nearest hostels. We rented a motorbike for 2 in the hostel and managed to visit the entire park in one day without rushing. The advantage of having a... More

This is maybe my favorite non-beach area of Thailand. I prefer the old ruins style of temples rather than newly-built temples in vibrant colors. This place has history. I've been here to visit these old temples in this previous capital city four times now, and it hasn't stopped being amazing to experience. Trying to picture the city as it was... More
