    I loved the location of this old palace: facing the river and so ensuring a fresh breeze even on the hot day we visited. The buildings are interesting from an architectural point of view: a mixture of traditional Thai with clear European and Chinese influences. The rooms where some items that belonged to Rama IV were shown, were rather poor. One cant help thinking: was this guy really that rich?

    The part I liked the best was the lopburi period statues: simple, with a clear khmer influence and far from the too elaborate Ayutthaya style.

    Being the biggest mall in the area means selection for both textile and food to be most variable
    Prices are good and so is service

    This is great because it is different. Many people come to Ayutthaya on the 32 road and take off on the 309. Right in the middle of the street you find this unique site. It is a well know landmark among Thais that come to Ayutthaya

    small but worth of visiting.Many delicate pieces allow us to know the history and culture about Ayutthaya. not far from the historical park and also a good place to take rest in the hot weather.

    精緻小巧的博物館,可從展品中更了解阿瑜陀耶的歷史與文化。騎腳踏車從歷史公園來並不遠,也是在炎熱天氣中稍微休息的好地方。

    The floating market here has cheap food. And many dishes are very appetizing, especially Kala Noodles, a delicious salad menu, with a variety of traditional desserts. There are many basketry items.

    There are so many temples, monuments and other places of historic interest in and around the Ayutthaya area that research before you travel is advisable.

    This exhibition is perfect if you have little time and need to have a some understanding of the sheer size of ancient Ayutthaya and its history. It has small reproductions of the most important parts. Visiting the Historical park without having any prior information can be overwhelming. We thoroughly enjoy our stay in Ayutthaya and surely the vist to the Historical Study Centre helped. It just needs some maintenance as some interactive parts of the exhibition don't work.

    This temple is located, about 3 km from Wat Mahathat. Entry to this compound is free, and you do not need a ticket here. This is not a ruin, but rather, an active temple, so discreet clothing is required. The place was not crowded and very few people were around. There are sign boards, illustrating on its history and significance.
    The main attraction here, is the beautiful, Thai Style architecture and the mural paintings. There is also an ordination hall. There was a Bodhi tree in the compound, which originated from the Bodhi tree in India, under which Lord Buddha had enlightenment.
    The place bounds to be hot, therefore carry a hat, sun lotion and water. We spend about 1 hours here. Transport is available to go back.

    Located on a very narrow lane next to the home of a national artist who is a stone carver. Best reached by bicycle or motorcycle. (down the road past Wat Sri Pho). There is a pond where you can feed fish or release fish to make merit. Everyone wants a photo at the pretty gate embraced by trees.

    This is ruin of an ancient Buddhist temple; this temple is still being offered devotion by the devotees. This is located next the Ayutthaya Rajabhat University and Si Sanphet Rd. This old temple is small but beautiful one.

    A very attractive and quiet temple locates on the bank of Chaophraya river. The title of this temple in Thai means king. Most likely that this temple was commissioned by former Ayutthaya king. The current buildings were rebuilt in early Bangkok period ( 18th century)

    We hired a Tuk Tuk, for a day, to visit all the ruins and sites off the island. This former Portuguese settlement, was on our route, so we decided to stop here. There was no one around when we reach this site. There was an area of excavation and a church named San Petro Church. There is a museum and an excavated pit of graves of buried Portuguese with the skeletons being preserved.
    As you walk deeper, you will reach the river bank, with the Japanese village just across it. There was no entrance fee and we spend about 30 minits here.

    This place was included in the tour package which we have signed up. As my family are all animal lovers, we declined to ride on the elephants. We have to wait there even if we do not want to as some people in signed up for it. Wait waiting, we decided to feed them instead.

    There are touts who will get tourists to take pictures with the elephants in an unnatural and awkward position which myself and plus one doesn’t like. Although when we’re there we didn’t see any punishment of elephants, but these beautiful creatures made to take pictures with tourists doesn’t seemed very natural.
