Much better than Sukhothai!

The park and all the ruins around the city are great! Rent a bike for (40 Bath) and go around :) they are easy to find with a map, provided by guesthouse or bike rental for free!

We stayed only 2 days in Ayuttayah and visited the 'top temples': ratchaburana, maha that, chai, mongkhon bophit, phra si samphet, phanan choeng and we are glad we made this stop from bkk to sukhothai. Easily by bike (try before 11.30am and after 4pm - for the heat). Finish in Chai with sunset...

I visit this place feels like a flashback. There are many things to admire I rented a bike ride around this place, the rent is 100 baht per day more enjoyable. Visiting this place, do not forget a hat, umbrella or sunscreen. And do not forget to bring a camera.

Absolutely amazing ruins of a once prosperous city, of the 14th century, finally destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century. The ruins have been preserved very well, and gives us an opportunity to appreciate the glorious past of Thailand .

Wow, I was floored by the entire area. Wish I had more time than the one day I was here. Yes, I took the early morning express train from Bangkok which got me here in 90 minutes. The train ticket is just 20 baht for the roughly 80 kms but the rickshaw charged me 100 baht for the roughly 3... More

Ayutthaya is very impressive historical site, even for those who dont know much about the Thai history. We took the train from Bangkok, which is 85km away and paid ridiculous 30B return. The train was old and dirty, it took 2 hours to get there, but I liked to see how the local Thais, live and commute. We rented bikes... More

It's kinda sad to see the historical temples are ruined remaining. But in my perspective, it's very lovely.

This needs a full day to go 70 km from Bangkok to see the traditional capital of Thai kings, most of the ruins date from around 1400. Several interesting wats and other sites to visit in Ayutthaya city (including a reclining Buddha), not as crowded as the Bangkok wats.

The ruins in the site are more spread out allowing you to wander round and take them in in your own time at your own pace without getting in the way of others or vice versa. The other advantage to them, with the site being bigger, is that you can focus on the bits that are of greatest interest to... More
