Don't climb the stairs!

Don't climb the stairs, it's not worth it! You're going to do it anyway, but whatever. Otherwise, it's a great sight to see for 30 or so minutes. I believe the structures are... read more

Don't climb the stairs, it's not worth it! You're going to do it anyway, but whatever. Otherwise, it's a great sight to see for 30 or so minutes. I believe the structures are about 700 years old and coming from such a young country like the USA, it's amazing to see such historical landmarks. From what my wife tells me,... More

It was a great experience visiting the Ayutthaya historical park and surround temples. Would recommend to take a tour along with a guide to explain the history behind the temples.

A very big area to cover. We saw various ancient monuments - stupa, chedi, pagodas, vihara, ubosot ( ordination room ). Took photos of ancients ruins and remains. The great area of the park implies the flourishing Ayutthaya as the Thai ancient capital city during 1350 - 1767. As it is very hot, do bring an umbrella, wear a cap/... More

The ancient site of Ayutthaya is well worth a visit. We spent three full days here, including exploring the Museum. It was easy to get away from other tourists and site was not overly busy. Tuk Tuk drivers are reasonably reliable and will take you to outlying temples. However, it is fairly easy to walk round the park, especially over... More

This is a great day trip from Bangkok and could be a two day stop as well. We took a bike and boat tour here. What we didn't realize from the guidebooks is how big the Ayutthaya island is. From guidebooks we got the impression it was a small area but actually you could easily spend a whole day going... More

We toured the ruins in three places. The first set was from the Early Period, the second one from the Middle Period and the last set from the Late Period. The full sweep of history was in evidence. We also saw a reenactment of the Burmese attack on stage. It was very well done. Horrifying what the Thai must have... More

The easiest way and cheapest way is by train, thanks for TripAdvisor, I was at airport debating which transportation to take when outside was so hot to walk to minivan stop, I read from... More

This place is steeped with history. You can feel the ambience of the ancient city. Just strolling around the ruins gives a unique feeling of the history of this place.
