This is one of the smaller Wats, but is still worth a visit if you find yourself with some extra time while in Ayutthaya.

Wat Phu Khao Thong is by far our favourite temple in Thailand. It’s so beautiful, and best part: there was almost nobody. It was was so peaceful. We went there by bicycle, it’s a bit further than most temples but so worth it.

Some Wats in the historical ruins may look alike but do visit this famous stupa called Golden Mount. It's a tall (watch out for the fragile ruined steps!) structure built on vast planes and interesting to go up there...

From afar I was able to see this nice white temple. Upon arrival it looks even more beautiful. I actually searched this online and saw that it looked less appealing compared to it's current appearance. There isn't much here but it is a nice place...More

All wats may have active monks at any time. Pants or very long shorts that cover the knees, and shirts and tops that cover the shoulders and midriff are appropriately respectful of the culture and local practices.
