If you have time while in Bangkok, this is a 3/4th day visit. For those into exploring ancient monuments and sculptures, it’s a good option.

What a sad site to see. The destruction caused by war. But what remained is still beautiful. The architecture and the scale of it is astounding.

Yes. Tickets from Bangkok are only 15 baht each way. The train was busy, get in first if you want a seat. There was also no airconditioning, only open windows. You get what you pay for :)

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.
