  • We negotiate in Bangkok with a taxi driver go to ayutthaya and there to guide us to the most important temples. It was worth doing so by saving time in finding all things and above all the wait for buses or trains. This specifically visited it last and at the same q, has its charm.

  • And temples (WAT) and a name, either to places such as the neighborhood park said reclining Buddha do it and (in a silly excuse) is lying. It may be because the ruins are spread just behind it, I had a magnificent temple architecture. Playing the admission or not, so are the children of the neighborhood, flying around the ruins of 微笑mashikatta.

  • Very impressive reclining buddha. It is in the open air so you can take great photos without obstructions from pillars. The temple remains are also interesting. Well worth a visit.
  • Laying Buddha. Good place to visit. Free entrance. It is possible to rent a bike for less thsn 50 THB and visit all the old town and ruins of temples
  • Huge laying Buddha. Chilled vibe with some shops near by and a Wat just behind.
  • Hot but good reclining Buddha image. Pay respect to the giant reclining buddha image and take some pictures. Don't forget to bring a hat or an umbrella.
  • One of the many ancient temples around the area. If you want to go for a roll, I feel it's best to get an all temple pass instead of paying 50 baht per visit to just this temple.
