It was my first day stop for north bound journey in Thailand and this historical city worths every moment you spend here. I was recieved at the train station by an amazing host and he took me to the historical site first so I may spend time basking in history of this place. I roamed around the site and enjoyed... More

For non-thai residents, you need to pay 50 bahts for visiting one temple. The location is quite close to bangkok. So you may pay a visit to there if you feel bored in bangkok.

I rented a car to see this and you have to travel outside the city proper. This place isn't so big and our diver became our tour guide for this. During the Genghis Khan invasion they destroyed the buddhas and beheaded all of them. Just recently though, this place was flooded and a lot of stuff got destroyed. This looks... More

If you are history enthusiast I think it is always worth to go and see on your own eyes. I would recommend to do the same if you haven't seen anything similar before - you might enjoy it as well. But if you are not a big fan of history sites or you have already seen for example temples in... More

Ruins were beautiful, contrasting with the green grass and blue sky. Loved it! Bring a hat when even if there is cloud cover, because the heat is intense when the clouds pass.

We made the journey here towards the end of our trip and we're really glad we did. We did also visit Sukkothai but still found this a fascinating area. We rented bikes and cycled to each area of ruins and found them peaceful and intriguing. It can get very busy so it is worth trying to visit early in the... More

Ayutthaya the former capital of Siam is a must if you can't go and visit Sukkothai. It gives a flavor of the past splendor of the Siam Kingdom (from 13th century to 18th century). The old city is about one hour north from Bangkok and can be visited in one day. It is advisable to first start with a 45... More

I was only in BKK for two days and, at the recommendation of friends, spent a full day of one of them at Ayutthaya. I regret doing so. I'm sure it's a worthwhile trip if you're in the Bangkok area for a week, but I wish I hasn't sacrificed time in BKK. Bangkok has so much to offer... So many... More
