  • We stopped first at the tourism center which is highly recommended. The staff was extremely helpful and informative. The gave brochures and a map. They marked the sites, gave a little information on e...  more »
  • 3/16 went to the friends of Thailand and Ayutthaya. From Bangkok samsen train station on the railway from Ayutthaya station. Specified seat vehicles with air conditioning in 243 baht. I think the seats I got Internet reservations in advance to book NET Japanese high hurdles. Please arrive at Ayutthaya station and you are on the outside of the station Guide, I ordered a Charter car and driver at one time 200 baht. Efficiently around the Temple of the eight drivers, in that one was not on the tourist maps of Japan Temple. Lunch took on the popular Thailand restaurant to local staff. All visitor was Thailand. Because it was very dark Tourism Charter price 1,400 baht in seven hours and the low price showed favor with chips of condoning. The slightly larger vehicles per hour 300 baht is like can be chartered. Passenger van to get to the US was 60 baht in Bangkok. Ayutthaya tour of major tour operators are good but we recommend these local travel. Very crowded on weekends, so on weekdays, so is recommended. Things have to change very little, such as in Bangkok go change a little bit more is strongly recommended. It was a great location not in words, want to go once in a lifetime.

  • Historical place and a must see whenever you visit Bangkok. The old capital of Thailand, an authentic landmark. Make sure to have water, sun screen protection and maybe rent a bike for the visit as they are not very close to each other. Many potential guides available on site but they don't speak good English. You can buy individual tickets for each site or a unique ticket for 5 different sites.
  • Perfect for historical learning, event just have a relaxing stroll. Better organize since massive flood in 2013. It still have a relaxing scenes of historical site of UNESCO. Some area still under construction but I hope it will turn good.
  • This is nice. Many things to 'discover' this place must have looked great in its glory days. Many temples, Buddhas stupas. Take your time as there is a lot of walking to do in the parks. Plenty of shade, so it is even nice on a hot summers day. Its 50 bath per temple but each temple covers a big area.
  • I've traveled in most part of Thailand, and this is the best in my opinion. It's amazing that you can go around the park by bike, where nothing troubles you, no car, no sounds. The temples are just stunning, you can spend so much time in there that you won't even notice.
  • A historical heritage site with a fascinating tale which tracks back more than 200 years ago. This site is located about 70 km North of Bangkok, it is a famous tourist attraction and the temples are scattered around the area. Hiring a driver or tour guide is strongly recommended. A full day (10 hrs) private van service costs around 2000 b (all costs are included - toll, fuel...etc).
