Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Explore the remains of ornate prang (spires), giants Buddhas, and sprawling palaces and temples at Ayutthaya 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 Ayutthaya Ruins and many more Ayutthaya attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Ayutthaya trip itinerary maker.
