This review is quite late. The Ayutthaya Historical Park is about an hour's trip from Bangkok. This was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site we visited in Thailand. Ayutthaya Historical Park is huge and covering it by foot is just too taxing especially on a hot day. There are a number of temples, pagodas and ruins within the area and... More

Our group of fifteen hired a guide with a bus and traveled about an hour out of Bangkok to Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam and a World Heritage site. I loved walking the ground, viewing the preserved temples and looking at the variety of birds singing in the trees. Most of the buildings were partially destroyed by the Burmese... More

It speaks for itself, definitely a must see in Thailand, so rich in history. Be prepared, it's very HOT! Hotter in this area then usual in Thailand, bring a hat and lots of water so you can stay longer and take in the scenery instead of hurrying to the car to cool down.

Across the street from our boutique hotel. Arrive early, before 9:30 and beat the tour buses. Turn your iPad side ways to get a better view says Trip Advisor

It's just about an hour from Bangkok...what I liked the most is the ruins... I liked how the management made efforts to preserve the entire area. There were signage allover so you, as a tourist would know what are the safe and unsafe places to go. I also like the way that they allow tourist to take pictures of the... More

The ruins in Ayutthaya, though not as breathtaking as ruins in other cities, are interesting to see. There is a lack of information at the sites but is still worth seeing. The area is great for biking around, which can be rented easily at several places for 40 baht, and is definitely worth it. There is a lot to see... More

this was an interesting historical site. It takes about an hour to get there from Centro. There are many remarkable building. It would have been nice it thinks had given you a little more information. Our driver helped a little in this regard.

Just 80kms form Bangkok (you won't even leave the city while getting there!), so is a great change from the busy city. The temples are basically in the town, which makes for a very weird experience. I rented a bike, I recommend you do that as well, it's the most convinient way to get around. Don't forget to bring something... More

Overpriced and another Thai wannabe... Thias is not set up like it could be... Badly oraganized and you can see most of the good stuff just walking around and not paying... trains from bangkok cheap and efficent... decent way to kill time
