Ayutthaya 13000, Thailand
00 66 81 9007442
this place is really awesome. It used to be the capital of Thailand and it has a lot of history. Definitely worth the trip out of the city. There are a bunch of things other than the ruins. There are quite a few ways to get there but it is nice to go with a group of people.
This place is a photographers dream. A treasure of historical temples and a beautiful area to walk through and learn about Thai history. There are well preserved ruins throughout the city of Ayutthaya, as well as working temples too.
The ruins here are Amazing. Ayutthaya is a great day or weekend trip away from Bangkok. The historical park actually consists of various sights that are a few kilometers away from eachother and each part of the park has its own entrance fee. You can purchase a ticket for all the sights for around 200 baht or pay individually if you only plan on going to only certain sights. The best way to get around to each site is to either rent a Tuk Tuk or bicycle for the day as walking can be really grueling in the heat.
I visited Ayutthaya almost two years ago with two friends and we absolutely loved our time here. You can visit it any time of the year and it is very accessible from Bangkok by public transport, which makes it a great day trip or a good stop-over if you are traveling north – I recommend taking a mini van from Victory Monument (costs 70 baht), as this is much faster than taking the train. I spent about two hours here awing at all the temples – a fantastic insight into the world of Siam!
Amazing place! I love archaeological ruins, and the history that is associatde with them. And every historical or sacred place in Thailand (that I have seen) is so beautiful. It would have been amazing to see this in its heyday. Well worth the effort to get for a visit.
One of my favourite spots in Thailand. The town itself is not very big but the temples there are really beautiful. Try to go early in the morning because the sun is very strong.
