If you are into history and culture, make sure to allot time for a visit to Ayutthaya Historical Park. It allows you to take a peek into Thailand's rich history. The temples are marvelous and it'll really pique your imagination as to how they were able to built structures like that back in the days with little technology. Get a... More

We took the skytrain to Victory Monument. Next to the century movie mall vans leave for Ayutthaya. It is not the first van station, but the second one, left of the mall. Tickets cost 60 Tbht per person and the van for Ayutthaya is nr. 6. Although the description in internet said 1 hour, it took us 1,5 hrs to... More

Each time we visit Thailand, Ayuttya is on the list to visit. After the busyness of Bangkok it is a haven of peace and tranquility with people to match. Tuk tuks are readily available and if you ask they won't charge for waiting. As we had gone by train from Bangkok we took a tuk tuk from the station and... More

This is a must see!! It is most impressive! So much History, and just amazing architecture! It was a rather hot day when we visited but it was well worth it, despite the heat. Weve unfortunately only covered just over half of the whole Park. I will definitely be going back to see what I have missed out on in... More

I found this to be the most spectacular example of Thai religious architecture. I have only been once but it was special. I suppose the temples in Bali are up there as well.

We were taken to this place after a visit to PTT-RTI. The whole place is filled with history. My favorite one is the Buddha in the tree, which I have seen in the magazine.

Don't get me wrong. The place was really photo worth-it and we had a good time visiting the ruins. The entrance fee to each location varied from 20-50 baht which is pretty affordable. It's over an hour from Bangkok for 60 baht (minivans). Since we opted for a DIY trip, we just read the history via internet instead of opting... More

We did 2 days one night there to Ayutthaya, it is lovely peaceful town, not very busy especially out of the Bangkok you will feel it very different. Bus traveling there from Victoria Monument cost only 60 THB, more than an hour driving there very comfortable bus with A/C. Minibus departure every 30 minutes( when it full) or eventually leave...

Interesting to see this place, discover ruins and imagine ancient live. However was not impressed with this place, most of ruins are really destroyed, also we didn't really have enough time to discover everything as we came by organised tour with viator with a guide who provide us really short time
