Narrow down which sites you really want to see before you go as their are so many and the traffic is very congested. There are many good restaurants along the river your driver can take you to a good one. Use a driver not a tour service it is not only more flexible. But cheaper and more enjoyable in the... More

The historical sites in Ayuttaya are worth a visit. I dont think you need 3 days as you can easily rent a scooter, which is my recommendation, as some of the sites are further apart and especially Wat Chai Wattanaram and Chai Mongkul are quite a bit outside the centre. And last mentioned sites arr at least my favorites. Renting... More

It took us about an hour and a half to get from central Bangkok out to Ayutthaya. The central temple park is easy to find, pretty easy to navigate, and beautiful. It definitely deserves it's UNESCO status. As other visitors have mentioned though, it gets VERY hot. This trip definitely needs to be planned for an early morning (and even... More

Ayutthaya is a place to see a piece of Thai/Siam history. I enjoy it looking at once a great city. The historical park consist of many temple ruins and buildings. 90% of it look similar. Please buy the value discount pass for 220baht if you visiting more than 5 temples. Can visit up to 6 or 7 temples. Each temple... More

Although I have travel Thailand extensively, Ayutthaya was one place that I never quite made it to. I'm sure glad that has changed. It's hard to truly appreciate Thai culture and history without a visit to this magical place. The ruins are fascinating and will keep even the most casual observer interested for hours. The beauty here is also the... More

I enjoyed my ayuttahya one day trip much better than 3 days in bangkok, its less touristy, less trafic at the street. I suggest you buy one day ticket pass than buy one entry ticket at every temple, you save more than 100 baht in doing this. Ask about this one day pass at ticket counter.

A very beautiful park which is worth visiting. But we went there at noon and the weather was super hot! Go there early in the morning to stay away from the heat!

If you're planning to have a Lopburi-Ayutthaya Day Trip, make sure to visit Ayutthaya first if you do not want to smell macaques the entire day. This is indeed a great place to learn history and seeing it up close adds to your learning experience. Tuktuk drivers near the station tend to charge THB 1500 for four hours, so if... More

History of glorious Ayutthaya is full of interest as the second but most important capital of Thailand (Siam)...spend some time to read about the over 450 years of the reign and the innovative model of integration of foreign people and culture which involved Portuguese, French, Japanese and much more in a perfect balance only broken by the horror of a...
