I have no regrets that I went to the site. It was once the capital of Thailand. It is a UNESCO site. If you have been to the ruins in Cambodia you might be somewhat disappointed. The temple project began in 1448. The capital/city was...More
We were taken from our hotel early morning to join a tour bus going to Ayutthaya. On our way to Ayutthaya, we stopped at the beautiful Royal Palace and was able to see its beauty. We saw the English, Chinese and Thai architectural influence in...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.
