My friend here took me here because of what it means to her and the Thai people in general. It contains the ruins of the old capital of Siam which you can walk up onto and around. It is an archaeological site that contains Palaces, Buddhist Temples, Monasteries and Statues. I also noticed that there were Elephant tours going which... More

A visit to Thailand will not be complete if you do not go to the Ayutthaya Historical park. This attraction showcases the ruins of the imperial village that was established by previous monarchs of Thailand. The government is currently in the process of restoring the site to enable visitors to understand and appreciate of the majestic history of the country.

The ruins are incredible but it is really painful to see them so unprotected and exposed at people´s ignorance

My wife and I went during September and their were very few people. We were able to take our time walking around and sit in the shade of the ruins and enjoy the park. I feel we might have gotten more out of it had we used some sort of guide to explain the history. They have done a good... More

My imagination filled my head thinking of the conflict that happened here to make the former residents leave this place. I thought of how this once looked but I know that my picture in my head would be lacking. I came here on a day tour and our guide filled us with information about the history, thank you Tour East,...

Ayutthaya is a huge city outside Bangkok probably, 1hr30mins travel. If you want to see a different side of the city and tired of the temples that can be found in Bangkok, then this is the place for you. I was fascinated with the different temples they have here in Ayutthaya. Truly, this city and country is rich with history.... More

The historical park had beautiful ruins that were great for cycling around. I did not like that you had to pay 50 baht for each site although they did have a pass available for six sites and costing around 200 Baht. Because of its proximity to Bangkok (about 1-2 hours) it was really crowded with bus loads of tourists visiting... More

I have visited Ayutthaya several times. It is one of the most beautiful places in to visit in Thailand. There a lot of wats. You can easily spend 4 days there. Most wats a free of charge to visit.

We hired some cool red bikes at our hostel for a small buck. We asked the local hostess to mark us the best spots to visit. We loved to visit this place after crowdy Bangkok!
