An absolutely great day out. Easy to get to via train and hire a tuck tuck driver for a few hours. Wish I had more time as the town surrounded the park but you don’t know it when at each Wat you visit as it’s made up of a number different temples to visit. For less than a US$120 for the whole day including train, tuck tuck and entry fees it’s a cheap day out to see UNESCO heritage rated temples.

The ruins of ancient Thailand’s capital Ayutthaya are a very interesting place to visit. It’s highly recommended if you are interested in ancient history and architecture. There’s much to see and a great place for taking photos too.

Ayutthaya Historical Park is one of the 10 historical parks in Thailand. The city of Ayutthaya was founded by King Ramathibodi I in 1351, but is probably older. This is indicated by evidence that the area was inhabited during the Dvaravati period (7th-11th centuries). Written and archaeological discoveries have also revealed that Ayutthaya may have existed in the late 13th century as a port town. It was also the second capital of Thailand after Sukhotai. In 1969, the renovation of the ruins began. The site was declared a historic park in 1976. Part of this site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage List in 1991. Amazing place worth visiting.

Ayutthaya as a city has a lots of historical sites, archeological findings, and a huge cultural heritage. Ayutthaya Historical Park was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It should take more than two hours to have a proper understanding of the thai culture. Most important park sites which can visited are Wat Phra Ram, Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Wat Mahathat, Wat Ratchaburana – the Royal Palace and Wiharn Phra Mongkol Bophit. Wat Maha That is the Buddha's Head in Tree Roots. Wat Thammikarat is the Temple of the Roosters & Giant Buddha.

Ayutthara was founded around 1350 by King Ramathibodi but in 1767 the Burmese attacked the city. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but in 2011, 158 monuments were damaged in the country's worst floods in decades.
The whole area is known as the Ayutthaya Historical Park and is made up of many different Wats to visit. We were on a tour and went to Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Vihara Phra Mongkhon Bophit (which is next door), Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon and the Bang Pa-In Palace.

The ancient city of Ayutthaya was once the capital of Siam and one of the largest cities in the world until its destruction in 1767. In fact the fire was so fierce that you can still see the scorch marks on many of the ruins today. However, the remaining ruins are spectacular and well justify their word heritage status. But, because of the size of the original city it’s impossible to see most of it (apart from the closest including the famous Buddha’s head in the roots of a Banyan tree). You can hire bicycles but better still a tuk tuk which will take you to all the major sites and wait while you explore. They are very reasonably priced and are experts in taking you to all the important and interesting places. It will probably take about 3-4 hours depending on how long you stay at each place. I’d also recommend buying a day pass at your first stop rather than paying an entrance fee on each other place.
But while the ancient city is spectacular I can’t say the same about the rather shabby modern city which has grown up around it. Particularly the stray dogs which go around in packs at night. Although they didn’t cause us any harm they can be a bit disconcerting.

I always feel privileged to step back in time and walk the landscape of a historical site. Founded in 1351, these UNESCO protected historical city ruins were a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. In my opinion these ruins rival the Roman Forum in terms of historical significance and preservation, and are well worth a visit. The ruins at Ayutthaya are spread all around the modern settlement - you can be driving down the main road to the mall and pass ancient tombs. We paid to visit the Auytthaya Historical Park, which is an ancient walled temple and tomb area, as this was much better than trying to peer over the wall. Yes, it costs more if you are a foreigner, but as a guest in another country I’m happy to pay for the privilege. We had a car, but there are also bikes for rent and tuk tuk guides for hire. The Historical Park is adjacent to another park area where there are elephants available to ride. It’s sad to see other tourists still doing this. While it does provide some employment, I’m not convinced it’s actually good for the elephants. Go to Koh Chang and take them for a swim instead.

Ayutthaya is only 90 minutes from Bangkok but a world away. This amazing Historical Park is a great day trip from Hired a car and driver out of BKK who drove us to all the Temples and Sights I listed. Old Siam’s Capitol and answer to Angkor Wat. Although not as majestic as Angkor Wat it is equally impressive a worth a visit. Buy the discounted multi-temple pass and check out the historical museum as well.

Went there with our tour to visit , and see the sunset. This ancient city of Thailand during the 1350-1767 is represented by these monuments . Sure was happy to have our tour guide who explained everything to us. The admission fee was 50 baht.
