This place is so scenic and accessible from Bangkok. We decided not to go with a tour and guided ourselves by reading the history and significance of each sight while we were there. This review is for how we got there from Bangkok.
Cool temples and very cheap to see. 50 baht or so for foreigners. If you enjoy walking around taking your time this is the city for you. Nothing like Pattaya or Bangkok but really unique. Very relaxing place to sit back and take some pictures,...More
Went on a hot day in February. Got accosted by a tuk tuk driver and got sucked in, even though we knew better! He was absolutely awful, smoking while driving and charging us too much! He also took us to tourist traps like the “floating...More
First time have been there is quite surprised for me. Amazing place and nice view. Everything is historic place. My journey i took train from Bangkok railway stations direct to Ayutthaya (18-20 bath) reached around 1 hour. Then i took tour from tuk2 there, they...More
Obviously the rate is only for the tour operator, NOT for the place, (that is beautiful).
Just avoid the daily tour sold by Asia Discovery and operated by Pha Jab tours.
They DON'T pick up from your hotel (as was written on the website) and...More

I planned a day trip to Ayutthaya for a photo shoot. A van was arranged through Thai Tourism Guide. Ms. Jeerapa, booking agent for TTG arranged for a driver who had driven to another location for me last year. This driver arrived at my hotel...More
we spent half a day looking around the ruins of the old city of Ayutthaya and the historical park - absolutely fascinating. also saw the temple of Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon which was well worth the visit.
This place is absolutely awesome. It’s full of rich history, local culture, markets and the local food is just amazing.
If you’re travelling in Thailand, or even holidaying near the city, I recommend you visit. Even if only for a day. You won’t be disappointed...More

hi, Ayutthaya is about 80 kilometers north of Bangkok (approx 2 hrs drive). Ancient capital with extensive archaeological site eg. temple. Definitely worth the visit. Just bring umbrella with you and you will be fine.

I cannot answer you question (just bungalows) - f about travel from Lamplaimat. What I can say is that we traveled from Bangkok’s Lamphong Railway Station vía an express train to Ayutthaya. The cost was $15 one way. The train made four stops and arrived in 1 hour and 20 minutes. The carriage was air conditioned. A meal and water were provided. We departed 10:15 and caught the last train out at 18:00 same day.
We visited Ayutthaya during a weekday. So I can’t say whether the sites are busier on weekends. What I can say is that I have seen an appreciable difference in traffic due to weekends anywhere in SE Asia. What is important to understand is that the town of Ayutthaya grew around the historical sites. Traffic is everywhere. We bicycled around to all the sites. Fun if not a little scary at times. I recommend searching the web for self directed tours to Ayutthaya. Good luck and enjoy. Ayutthaya is worth a see!
Dear BKK experts, I do hope you can help me with my question. I am planning following tour and was wondering if it is doable in one day as promised by the tour operator. The itinerary would be, Morning, Maeklong Railway Market Damnern Saduak Floating Market incl. roawing boat after that we would drive to Ayutthaya Historical Park for some sightseeing. Is it to much for one day or is it achievable. I am grateful for your opinion. Many thanks, Gerald

Maeklong is not there at the moment as upgrades to the railway line are being done and no idea when it will be complete. Damnoen Saduak should be done first thing in the morning with an early departure from Bangkok as it takes up to 2 hours to get there. Ayutthaya should be given a whole day really - perhaps at a push early to Damoen Saduak and then on to Ayutthaya if you have a private driver.

2 days in bangkok- where to stay and itinerary (9 Replies)
My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Thailand May 15th to May 22nd. We will fly in to Bangkok for one day. Then we travel to chiang mai and phuket/phi phi islands, and back to bangkok for one last day before flying back home. We would like to stay in an area where we can easily get to the major tourist sites- temples, markets, and souvenir shops. We would also like to stay in an area with some character and that has a lot of good restaurants, maybe close to some bars and experience the...More

Can't comment on your daily plans, but I would also suggest Sukhumvit area. Ayutthaya is a long way from Bangkok, this could potentially eat your whole day. When trying to plan your day, make sure you allow for traffic
