As a part of our day trip to Ayutthaya, the three-bell-shaped temples are among the most famous images in Ayutthaya, along with the Buddha head in tree roots. Like all the ruins, this area is easy to walk around. Great to take pictures and listen...More
This is one of the ruins sites that most photographed in all of Ayutthaya. Can be packed with people, especially during peak tourist season, but it was pleasantly quiet during our most recent visit. Best to visit in early morning or late afternoon when not...More

Hello, guys! I am planning to go to Ayutthaya in mid-June by train (supposedly arriving at 9.42 a.m. in Ayutthaya). I have the following itinerary in mind: 1. Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, 2.

Wow, that means we should hire a tuk-tuk for at least 6 hours. Did I understand you correctly?
Opening times of Wats? (2 Replies)
Hi, I'm visiting Ayutthaya in the last week of December. I was thinking of heading to Ayutthaya early (6.30-7.30ish) so that we can hopefully see more before the scorching afternoon sun comes out. However, I just realised that some places seem to have opening times - for example, Ayutthaya Historical Park seems to open at 8am and Wat Phu Khao Thong at 8am. Can I check what the opening times for these temples are? I am getting some conflicting information online. Ayutthaya...More

For the temples operated by the Fine Arts Department which charge an admission fee, the hours are officially 8:30 to 16:30 according to the TAT website. From your list, these are Wat Chaiwattanaram, Wat Sri Sanphet and Wat Mahathat. Temples under the Fine Arts Department which do not charge an admission fee are open to visit 24 hours a day. These are Phu Khao Thong and Wat Lokayasutharam. *Wat* Phu Khao Thong refers to the temple behind the golden mount. I presume that you're only...More
A place to eat lunch in Ayutthaya (10 Replies)
We plan to split our temple tour in Ayutthaya between morning and afternoon to cover as many temples as we can. Therefore, eating hearty lunch in between is a must. Can you guys help me suggest a place or two where we can eat Thai food at a reasonable price but close enough to the temples, somewhere near Wat Phra Sri Sanphet or Wat Phra Ram? Our planned itinerary would start first outside the island, at Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, then progresses to Wat Mahathat, Wat Ratchaburana and Wat Phra...More

Ayutthaya is not very big. Have your lunch at one of the restaurants down by the river off Uthong Road. Then you can easily resume your tour.
