The entire Ayutthaya complex is worth a visit. Well maintained, clean and tourist friendly. Sadly not much effort has been taken in highlighting information for the curious person. So you just go there, gape at everything and come back.

Don't pay a tour guide! The motorcycle is 200THB. The guide is going to be 400 or more!!! You'll have more fun getting around. Bring a compass or have GPS on your cp so you won't get lost!

This Buddha is beautiful. He looks like he’s having a wonderful dream. Easy to get to off the side of the road.

Our guide told us this buddha is a reproduction because the original was destroyed when Ayutthaya was razed. There is no temple left either. Not worth it.

This is a very large nicely carved reclining Buddha.It was not very crowded at all when we went. We found it worth a visit and for most people it would not be a long stop. There are, however, some other images, ruins and parkland at...More
