Ruins through out a portion of the city. Nice to see what once was. City itself was a little smoggy.

I did a day trip to the Ayutthaya area and the ruins were one of the places that we visited. We had a guide that spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable with regards the history of the sites that we visited. We visited in...More

We walked around the ruins for about an hour as they capture what it must have been like many years ago when the King is Siam was there. It has a little gift shop as well if you want a drink or an ice cream....More

Visited here as part of a small boat tour, and it’s an impressive sight. Partly still being ‘refurbished’ and recovered since the 1950’s, this UNESCO world heritage site is worthy of inclusion of any tour. Eerily quiet, near the outskirts of Ayutthaya, you pay ฿50...More

I am a female solo traveller too. for me better if you book a tour so that the tour guide will tell you and explain about the history of that place. you will not appreciate the place if you don't know the history of that... More
