What to see in Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya is a little piece of Thailand history at 1 hour 30 from Bangkok. It is one of the destinations where there is the most interesting temples to visit. In center town (Ayutthaya Historical Park) and the periphery. Don't miss Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon a little outside from the center.

Must-visits in Ayutthaya

Wat Phra Si Sanphet Ayutthaya

Wat Phra Si Sanphet

วัดพระศรีสรรเพชญ์
My opinion :
the most visited temple in Ayuthaya, three chedis perfectly preserved make this wat very unique.
Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon Ayutthaya

Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon

วัดใหญ่ชัยมงคล
My opinion :
perfectly restored, a very beautiful temple with two large Buddhas on each side of the big chedi and a reclyning Buddha a little further. Around the main building a square with buddhas statues. It is better to visit it early in the morning around 8:30-9:00, there are very few visitors and you will practically have the temple for you alone.
Wat Phanan Choeng Ayutthaya

Wat Phanan Choeng

วัดพนัญเชิงวรวิหาร
My opinion :
Temple on the outskirts of the city, it has a huge golden Buddha sitting
Wat Mahathat Ayutthaya

Wat Mahathat

วัดมหาธาตุ
My opinion :
very ruined especially interesting for its Buddha head trapped in the roots of a tree
Wat Mongkhon Bophit Ayutthaya

Wat Mongkhon Bophit

วัดมงคลบพิตร
My opinion :
close to the Wat Phra Si Sanphet, it houses a huge bronze Buddha.
Wat Chai Wattanaram Ayutthaya

Wat Chai Wattanaram

วัดไชยวัฒนาราม
My opinion :
Khmer-style temple outside the city. It can be accessed by longtail (boat) from the Chankasem Palace Pier.
Wat Lokaya Sutha Ayutthaya

Wat Lokaya Sutha

วัดโลกยสุธาราม
My opinion :
and its reclining Buddha
Ayutthaya Weekend Nigh Market Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya Weekend Nigh Market

ถนนคนเดินกรุงศรี
My opinion :
This night market offers a very nice decor and a pleasant atmosphere. It is held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings in the heart of the city near the most famous historical temples of Ayutthaya. This is particularly a place that I recommend for dinner and discover the local cuisine.
Wat Phra Ngam Ayutthaya

Wat Phra Ngam

วัดพระงาม
My opinion :
This small temple is very rarely mentioned in guide books but its ''Gate of Time'', a ruined arch in the roots of a tree, is probably one of the most photogenic places n Ayutthaya. I let you judge by looking at my pictures and decide if you want to go or not.
