Another must stop in Ayutthaya Holy City, with only 3 chedis still standing (partially reconstructed, of course) and terraces defying time. Recommended to visit after hot season, and before 5pm.It was one of the most impressive works of the Old Royal Palace.

We came here as part of our cycling tour, and I wrote another review including this site for "Ayutthaya Historic National Park". The place lovely and the entrance fee is very cheap. There is also a lovely temple next to it which is free.

There are still a lot of things left from the damage, many pillars remind us how magnificent it used to be. However it is very very hot, I have to stand in one tree shadow for 5 min look at one site, then quickly run to see another site in another tree shadow.

This temple still have it's charm. But the Buddha statue is not as much. Good experience. Can also visit the Buddha temple next to it which is free.

From time to time, I want to see all the temple in Ayutthaya which we all known from the history. When we visited the place. I realize the beautiful of several pagodas and the area made me think about the war with Burma at that time. It was amazing and wonder how they built this place in the old days.

We are on a Grand Circle Travel 29 day tour of Japan / China / Thailand. The ancient city of Ayutthaya 70 miles outside Bangkok. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose once golden ruins reflect the splendor of early Siam. As we left the city proper, the rural farmland became very picturesque, along with riding on modern well-maintained... More

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is one of the most beautiful and biggest Ayutthaya temple complex. Great place for history lovers. I spend there 3 days and feel that's not enough and missed some temples. Tuk -tuk or even bike ride if is not to hot will be just perfect.

This and Mahatat were the largest temple ruins I've visited out of Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, Wat Mahatat, Wat lokaya sutharam and Wat Chai Wattanaram. My sis and i went crazy taking photos and... More

Great for people who want to learn more about the history of Ayutthaya and really get to explore the area. I would recommend getting a private tour or just taking a taxi out there to Ayutthaya. We booked a day tour and it was exhausting waiting around for everyone in the sun and I personally like to have the freedom... More
