Ayutthaya Historical Park, Ayutthaya
(4.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Discover Thailand's rich and compelling history at Ayutthaya Historical Park, a settlement founded in 1350. The second Siamese capital, it was ransacked by the Burmese in the 18th century, yet its ruins still offer a fascinating glimpse into Asian architecture of the period, town life, and spirituality. Now a World Heritage Site, the city retains an abundance of treasured buildings, statues, and surrounding scenery. Admire the delicacy of the design and its resilience to the forces of nature and society. Remember to bring your camera, and note that crowds peak at midday. Ayutthaya Historical Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Ayutthaya Edition.

  • Who goes to Thailand cannot fail to see this beautiful city, the ancient capital of Thailand, is to run for a full day but worth it, is a historical place unimaginable

  • 我們是由廊曼機場坐火車到大城,再轉乘篤篤前往遺址,走時是搭乘Mini Van到達曼谷的勝利廣場!其實我們之前到過了緬甸,也看過類似的遺址,但不同的是,這里的佛像幾乎都支離破碎,破落的感覺徒添了一份蒼桑的歷史感,令人格外唏噓,相信,喜歡歷史的人都會喜歡這里,同時,這裡也令我們體會到戰爭的殘酷!

  • It is alright. Sukothai Historical Park is better in my opinion, but since that is more off the beaten path and about another 4 or 5 hours north by car, Ayutthata is a suitable substitute. It can get hot and crowded. It is also helpful to either hire a guide or bring a good guide book.
  • It was fun to explore the ancient ruins. Very very hot during the day with minimal shade. Bring lots of water and a parasol.
  • Nice tourist attraction although in my opinion under my expectation. Quite overcrowded & sometimes you could see elephants dung in the road
  • Nice historical place to visit. Tour guide would be adviced, otherwise a lot of interesting infomation will be missed.
  • A great place! The giant Buddha temple and the temple nearby are one of the best in my humble opinion.
