  • The most scenic Wat and I really love this Temple despite the weather is hot but the view here is breathtaking. Worth to visit 
  • I thought the Wat Chaiwattanarm Buddhist temple was the best site to see in Ayutthaya. Just a beautiful well preserved ruin. Lots of tourists here but a must see if in this part of the world 
  • A great place, really shocking find Buddhas beheaded and burned, a fantastic Archaeological Park. It is worth really visit him in Ayutthaya. "Allegedly" is filmed an of the films of Rambo in this place.
