Fascinating ruins

So different from active temples and palaces! Amazing history of the ruins and wonderful ruins of temples. Great to wander and consider the history of this place.

A great family day trip to include in your Bangkok itinerary provided that your family consists of History boffs like mine (but even I enjoyed the trip). We booked a tour with an English-speaking tour guide who took us through the ruins providing detailed information of the architecture, history and the culture of Siam at the time and background on...

These temples don't compare to the temple sites of Thailand's neighbours but they are worth visiting nonetheless

Historical ruins gives one a sense of what Siam was like. It could be improved with more description of the ruins. Let your imagination go and think of the movie the king and I.

Suggest a tour from Bangkok as public transport is not easy and we you arrive the sights a spread out over a very large area. It is a long day and hot so consider making this an overnight trip.

Spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the ruins and surrounding areas, followed by boat tour at sunset, market visit in the evening. Ruins are impressive and artistic. Witnessed a rare parade of monks, chanting as they went thru the temple grounds. On the boat tour, had a glimpse of local life, and some animals. Worth the time and money for a... More

This is definitely a must see in Thailand, in my opinion. The ruins are beautiful. I hired a private tour guide, since the individual sites are a little spread out. It would take some time to get to all of them, but there are public transportation options from Bangkok available. These ruins are a different side of Thailand compared to... More

Wat mongkul temple impressive it's a large medi across the sky line of Central Ayuttaya and the rear parking is brilliant. From here you walk to the kings statue then on to the temple. The steps are steep but the views stunning don't miss.
