From the train station, the quickest and almost only option to get to the wat's and all the cool looking buildings is by paying to a taxi/tuk tuk/ mini van. We walked, we thought it would be cool. Well it is not sure for the first time where to go, and almost 1 hr walk. The place is calm, hot... More

An ancient city that is located a fair distance out of town. Once an important city, the grounds have not withstood the test of time resulting in a massive archaeological ruin. There are visible restoration attempts to this UNESCO site with metal props holding up walls but a lot of buildings and statues are crumbling. Wonderfully serene and it is... More

To me, this area is a must-see if you are visiting Bangkok. Only an hour away from Bangkok, this smaller city offers a Heritage site with a variety of incredibly gorgeous temple ruins. We rented bicycles, (so cheap) and rode from one to the next. It was a most memorable day for our family and the second time my husband... More

It was a long drive by bus but it's worth it. The ancient city, the pagodas and the reclining Buddha are spectacular. Be careful while taking photos. Because your head should be lower than the Buddha's head at all times. And one may forget it when taking a photo. You will be warned kindly.

Ayutthaya is named after Ayodhya - the birthplace of Lord Rama in India. Thai kings called themselves as Rama and their capital Ayutthaya. Beautiful!! We're glad to have carved out a day during out Thailand trip for Ayutthaya. Wish we had more time to spend and experience the real taste of pure Thailand. First off - the temples were awesome....

To wat-hop at a more leisurely pace, an overnight trip is recommended. For a start, visit the Tourist Centre to get free maps and information. There are many must-see wats to cover, so good planning is required plus a good tuk-tuk to bring you around. Based on what I observed, biking around may not be idea due to the traffic... More

We organised a day tour to this area and there a number of locations to go to. Beautiful UNESCO heritage area with beautiful large Budhas and temples. Must see the head fallen off a statue and engulfed by the tree and the female Budha lying sideways. Also the temple surrounded by huge statues. Well worth the day. There are also... More
