  • If travel to Ayutthaya to see the outline of the old khrongkhwam past krung Thonburi and Bangkok before coming to a. In the current year to 417, is the capital city, so there are still some things before creating this chaiwatthanaram Temple. Don't miss the point, Loei Loei is located in the heart of the city.

  • Most beautiful temple a little hard to reach but by bike or tuktuk it's ok.
  • Very nice temple along the river, 50thb for foreigners, 10thb for Thais. Can go there by boat. Nice sunset :)
  • Hire a boat to get to this temple as it is conveniently located next toethe river. Alternatively, hire a bike as it is only a couple of kilometers from central Ayutthaya. Either way we recommend visisting this temple, as its is one of our favourites. The temple has two entrances. You don't have to pay at the southern one ;-)
  • Love and adore all the Buddha's temples no matter whereabouts, may Man I Shakyamuni Buddha and Amituofo Buddha bless all the sentient beings, especially all the Buddhists with good health, happiness, wisdom, and loving kindness heartd. May Shakyamuni Buddha bless my family too, hope they could fated with Namo Shakyamuni Buddha and pray to Buddhas. World peace with no disaster. Namo Shakyamuni Buddha@Namo Amituofo Buddha
  • A beautiful ruin that is easier to reach with a Tuk Tuk. It's a bit of a long walk from the train station. Like many places in Thailand, this Wat is a must see.
