NIce views and historical buildings. The only downside was the weather, it was really hot. They charge more for tourist and cheaper for locals. The temple along the way is awesome. In spite of the heat and humid, it"s worth the trip.

The ruins in the historical park are wonderful and make for some lovely pictures, but please keep in mind you will have to pay 50 baht for most of the sites, each separately- Since there are quite a few it is worth researching before to find the sites you are most interested in. Also, some will require you to cover... More

they have a nice park except for going to the elephant rides. it is here that they will try and gouge tourists for more money. a local costs 100 baht for a elephant ride, while tourists costs 400 baht. i guess because you are not getting a ride where you are from they feel they can take extra from you....

Truly and amazing site to visit while in Thailand. About 2 hours out of Bangkok, a day trip is all you will need. Best to sleep over a night and see the ruins at dusk with the lights on. Hot and humid, but worth the effort. Bring along your camera and happy snaps along the way. Read first on the... More

We stopped here with our guide for biking through Ayutthaya. It was very informing and the start of a great day of touring.

This is one of the best places to see the temples. I'd recommend a guide to get the most out of it. Come before it gets to hot so that you can enjoy the scenery.

Finding out how the historical park came to be is very interesting. I wish that there were more full body Buddhas though and it was better well kept.

We visited the King's summer palace (Bang-Pa) which includes lakes, bridges, elephant topiaries and several temples (again you have to take off your shoes....slip-ons are a good idea). There is quite a bit of walking at the palace so bring your shade umbrella. We also saw several old temples and monuments. The temple with the Buddha face in the tree... More

After we already saw Ankor, Bagan and other historical sites, Ayutthaya has been quite disappointing. The reason is that most of the old (well, they're not as old as some Roman churches/temples and the Khmer temples) monuments are in very bad condition, due to wars but also due to bad conversation. They need to do something very fast to preserve... More

We were docked in Bangkok for our second day and booked a tour to what turned out to be some fabulous ruins. Following a 1½ hour scenic drive, we arrived at the site. Founded in 1350, Ayutthaya was the Kingdom's capital until 1767 when it was conquered & destroyed by the Burmese. Upon entering the park, we toured the magnificent... More
