Most of the ruins have not been restored which for me makes it more interesting as what does remain seem to be quite stable and not being damaged by trees or two many tourists. You do not need a guided tour if you are fit enough to cycle around and have a guide book, plus you can go where you... More

We traveled here with NS Travel & Tours with our own guide and driver. Tui was truly excellent both in her knowledge and her flexibility in adapting to our varying levels of interest. Ayutthaya was impressive both in scope and workmanship. But, go to the Ancient Siam historical park to see what the most impressive temples looked like in their... More

ruins - that's all it is, but a nice day on the bikes, it's really a shame that it got so ruined... must have been a great City once

I was there on a hot day with midday sun beating down on me. There were some nice temples and Buddhas. As I was part of a group, there was not enough time to go around all the temples in the compound. Since it was so hot, I wanted to go back to the a/c bus without much delay. I... More

We spend a week in Ayutthaya, taking our time to see many of the temples and also relax away from busy Bangkok. The temples are worth the visit and it was very easy to self explore without being part of a tour group. Most of the temples are not restored but that was what we liked about the place. There...

Ayuthaya trip, 3rd of January 2017: We landed at the Don Muang Airport and have read on an awesome blog how to get there by train and we decided to go for it. The exit to the train station from the airport is a little bit trick but ask security and they will show you the way! We spent 20... More

We enjoyed our visit. We visited in December and the place was free to visit due to King's death. Won't comment much on the ruins since others have mentioned enough details. ------------- We were in a nice taxi in Bangkok and he was trying to sell us trips. Since the taxi was nice, we decided to go ahead and negotiate... More

To be truthful I am not sure that I hadn't, but it certainly doesn't get as much headlines as the Angkor temple complexes at Siem Riep. The Ayuthaya ruins are about an hour north of Bangkok, and in our particular case, about 3 hours bus ride from the cruise terminal at Laem Chabang (we were on the Diamond Princess). Ayuthaya...

This is a good area for flat walking and access via foot or tuk-tuk throughout the region. Well worth visiting.

This park is in crumbling ruins. A few of the buildings are still intact but the heads of most of the Buddhas have been broken off during raids. Nice place to visit. I got bit by some bug and it itched and stung for a few days. Mosquito replellent is a must.
