I visited in November 2018 and found it to be fairly busy. The site is one of the largest that we visited with numerous buildings that were still in good condition. We had an English speaking guide who was very knowledgeable and made the visit...More

This temple is pretty complete compared to others and it is a very beautiful temple, I would say this was my second favourite. It opens at 8am and is 50 THB entrance.

How many hours for this itinerary with tuk-tuk? (10 Replies)
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. Wat Phanan Choeng, 3. Wat Ratchaburana, 4. Wat Mahathat, 5. Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, 6. Viharn Phra Mongkhol Bophit, 7. Wat Chaiwatthanaram. I don't know yet whether I should hire a bike or a tuk-tuk. What would you recommend? And how much time would this itinerary take by bike as compared to tuk-tuk? Should I...More

Wow, that means we should hire a tuk-tuk for at least 6 hours. Did I understand you correctly?
Opening times of Wats? (4 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.
