This is so beautiful and majestic. Hired a tuk tuk from the train station to take us around for 4hours. Good value for money better than going with a tour group.

We visited Ayutthaya with a local tour. It was one of the best historical sites we have seen. The time to explore was not enough. You really need about 2 hours to explore this site.

Beautiful and worth the drive from Bangkok. We hired a private tour, which is very affordable. I try to avoid going on bus tours as much as I can but sometimes it's unavoidable. This is a serene place with many breathtaking views. One of the nicest places I've ever visited. Totally worth going.

I am glad we took the time to go the 75 miles out of Bangkok to see the ruins from 1784ish. This is where the Burmese sacked these temples and cut off the heads of nearly all Buddha statues, looking for jewels. It makes for some sad but lovely photographs and it is outside so you don't need to take... More

Breathtaking sight at Ayutthaya; a pity the original grandeur was lost during the Burmese invasion in 1767.

Ayutthaya, an island at the confluence of three rivers, was founded about 1350 and became the second capital of Siam. By 1700, Ayutthaya was the largest city in the world. The Burmese invaded the area in 1767 and burned much of Ayutthaya to the ground. What is left are the ruins of this once glorious city. In later years, it... More

As with other attractions in Ayutthaya the ruins are very nice but lack some care and perhaps restoration. We were there on Monday and had a free admission

If you love history as much as I do then you should visit this place. It's my second time here and this place never fails to amaze me. I love everything about this Historical Park. Be sure to put sunblock if you visit Ayutthaya. Haha! And don't forget to try the Coconut ice cream!! Yes, it's a must-try! 🍨🤗🤓

You can reach here by minibus from the bus station near Chatuchak Park, travel is about an hour away. You can get a tuk tuk to take you around the various temples. There are middle men at the drop off. Don't let them overcharge you, 300-600 baht is about right. The various temples are beautiful... you will be glad you... More
