I enjoyed the ruins although on a hot day (coconut water is recommended) but the place was big and my not-so-little-feet got tired for exploring the ruins. Overall, it was amazing and lovely historical place to visit if you interested in Thailand culture.

Lovely place when you are interested in the history of Thailand. Easy to get around and it is not as noisy, crowded and poluted like Bangkok. Easybto drive from Bangkok by car.

WE enjoyed the ruins although on a hot day I would definitely recommend water and a hat. Parking was limited and a guide was a big plus as they added significant information and detail beyond what was available in the interpretive settings. Highly Recommended!

Just near historic park and you would not miss it. Even though it is closed, still visible and very nice to see. See from out side is free!

The history of Ayutthaya is very interesting. The ruins are definitely worth visiting as some are truly awesome in scale and the stories surrounding them are amazing.

I went to Ayuthaya in the summer (late June) and it was hot hot hot. Actually if you are interested in heritage and culture, and especially after you've done some prior reading in Wikipedia, Ayuthaya isn't a bad place to visit. Unlike what most (Western?) travellers assume, Ayuthaya isn't an ancient city preserved in its entirety (unlike Bagan). It's more... More

We arrived at the station and mr pok approached us, he seemed like a great guy, he told us the price for a half day tour in his van, but told us to pay him when we finished it, we ended paying him even more because he did an excellent job! Very nice tour, we saw all the important landmarks... More

Take the time to leave Bangkok and visit this original capital of Thailand. Many sites to see, I recommend two days to take it all in and a night river cruise to see the temples illuminated.

This is a must do day trip from Bangkok. My friends and I used an organized your and I feel that is the way to go. Our tour guide added so much to the experience by being able to explain so much of the history and cultural significance. Also, Ayuthaya is very spread out so it's helpful to have someone... More
