this is an amazing complex of many different levels. It immediate,t reminded me of Ancient Rome or the My Son site in Vietnam. This site is well maintained and there are many signs posted throughout, a.lowing you to understand the history and significance of the different temples. Be prepared with water bottles and appropriate dress; there are people checking that... More

A must visit if you are in this town. I strongly advice to go early morning because it gets very crowdy. The admission fee was about 50 bah . I wanted to go around night time to take nice photos but there wasn´t people around... I would love to go back and spend more days!

I was there in september 2013. There is a tiny little fee to pay. Once you're in, you realise it's totally worth it. We (my wife and I) spent the whole afternoon in this remarquable place. There is so much to see. You can go there either with shoes or flip flops. You can also use a tripod. For me,... More

Wonderful day trip from Bangkok. My husband and I just went in June and loved getting to see all of the temples from the 1300-1700s. There is a 50 Baht entrance fee to most of the temples (less than $2) which is well worth it. The area is a bit spread out so I recommend taking a Tuk-Tuk or renting... More

Loved the history around the Historical Park and found myself looking at some breathtaking views. If you are into history, I would suggest going to each place and checking them out. One of the things I learned though, was it is disrespectful to not stay on the walking path at Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. So remember, when you are there... More

I'm living in China and go back home only twice a year. I visit the Historical Park with my family every time I go back home. It's like a magical land where you feel like you're a time traveller. Every single brick has its own history. Perhaps it's the only attraction on earth I won't get bored after thousands of... More

Ayutthaya was the second capital for the Kingdom of Siam after Sukhothai. Founded on a natural island between three rivers in 1351, it was the capital until 1767 when the Burmese attacked the city. The king then moved the capital to Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit (that's Bangkok to you and me). Ayutthaya was chosen as a... More

The whole place is amazing, you can see so many different temples and buddhas! we did the tour with one of the tuk tuk drivers from the train station for 600 bath and it was great! It took us everywhere without pressure and we could stay as long as we wanted in each temple! is about 4 hours to get... More

I was one of the day-trippers from Bangkok, and this was a great stop; I could see hanging out here for a bit too enjoy a slower paced atmosphere than Bangkok. The highlights - Wat Maharat, the reclining Buddha - were all included. Glad I went, likely you will be too.

Ayutthaya was the first stop for our family on our Thailand/Cambodia adventure. We loved it. From the history, to the ruins to the night market to the people. Definitely recommend a visit to Ayutthaya if you are traveling around Thailand
