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

I was really intrigued by the pictures of Buddha's head enveloped by the tree roots that all the brochures feature. It is neat when you see it in person, but I was annoyed by the crowds that took their sweet time for pictures, detracting from...More

When you about Ayutthaya in a guide book you think that it is going to be a large parkland area with lots of different ruins. It is not like that as there is in fact a part that is a modern town and has more...More

The ruins are beautful and evocative. An amazing historic site which would have been stunning before it was plundered. The place is steeped in Thai history. Highly recommended

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.

Hello, I was there during the day and although its very old with not many eateries it feels pretty safe. There were lots of ticket offices open and English speaking around and it felt very safe.
