Ayuthaya Ruins, Ayutthaya

(4.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Explore the remains of ornate prang (spires), giants Buddhas, and sprawling palaces and temples at Ayuthaya Ruins, once the gleaming capital of Siam. The Burmese sacked the city in 1767, but the crumbling ruins still hold an Ozymandian majesty. To best prioritize the many sites that make up the vast historical park, and to learn more about the city's history, take a guided tour. On the other hand, you can find many smaller hidden gems--neglected by most tourists--by sightseeing independently. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Ayuthaya Ruins and many more Ayutthaya attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Ayutthaya trip itinerary maker.

  • Second is for the first time in 12 years ago. Was previously, or paved roads and housing around the ruins was also quite old, but was changed considerably. Include the Japanese city of Yamada Nagamasa in Siam came was in the past, but this time not to be blame. I visited in the tour and travel in buses last was built in tighter travel agencies in Japan, this time coming to Thailand in free, so Chao Phraya River Cruise is turned back. Last time in the rose garden elephant paste could and atmosphere of Ayutthaya elephant riding, because it ruins back to take pictures is recommended.
