Rented a bicycle to get around the park. I didn't have any id so the bicycle rental took a deposit. Had to cycle for... More

Beautiful historical archive. A little away from Bangkok but definitely worth the visit. Lot of history and architecture. Visited with the kids and everyone enjoyed the trip.

It was great monument and history place in Ayutthaya. The place is one of favorite tourist destination so you need to visit in the morning for photography. If not, a lot crowd to flood the place and difficult to get any shot for architecture and landscape photography.

I had a friend who's a local to take me around the ruins and explain the history to me. It's best to do your research beforehand or find a local guide to get to know the stories behind the ruins. Each temple is quite far from each other so renting a bike is the best option. Expect to pay a... More

From Victory Monument at Bangkok, we hunt for the counter that say Ayutthaya. Each ticket per pax is about 60 bhat, waited about 20 minutes for the next available minivan and the journey on the minivan to the fringe of Ayuttaya took about 75 minutes. From outside the departmental stall (Robinson) at Ayutthaya, you can rent a tuk-tuk, it cost... More

I'm a local, and despite having been to over 100 ancient sites world-wide, this city remains my favorite to talk about. To truly understand what Ayutthaya was, one has to imagine it at the time of its height in the late 1600s. Golden pagodas, clean canals, plentiful gardens, defensive walls and markets with traders from all corners of the world.... More

It looks great and is really cheap. I would really recommend to cycle through the park. Very relaxed atmosphere and amazing temples.

I'm not certain but this seems like the type of setting that the would have made for the movie "The King and I". Picturesque, with rivers all around and very neat historical setting. I'd recommend a guide, as the site has limited interpretive information (some good models, but we were well benefited by our guides knowledge and insight).

The ruins of Ayutthaya are about 85km north of Bangkok and an easy day trip if you are pushed for time. Catch skytrain to Victory Monument then a regular minivan to the central market in Ayutthaya . There you will be besieged by tuk tuk tours - they run around 600 baht for 2.5 hours and variations . You can... More
