Ayutthaya a small port city which is usually visited during a day drip from Bangkok as it is only about 80 kilometers north from it. When it was still a capital of the Kingdom of Siam, it was safe to considered it as one of the world’s wealthiest and most cosmopolitan cities. Inside you would find ruins of ancient temples and memory of treasure-laden palaces. Unfortunately, Ayutthaya was brutally plundered by Burmese in 1767. Its temples and palaces were destroyed and now the city bares just little resemblance to once glorious past.
We found Ayutthaya as a great get away from always busy Bangkok. Calm and relaxing atmosphere makes it so easy to adapt to city’s rhythm. The towering stupas and ruins across the town even nowadays create an impression about once mighty Kingdom which thrived on trade and created art.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Thailand!
