About Travel to Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya was the capital city of Thailand from 1351 to 1767. Modern day Ayutthaya is a city of much less importance compared to Bangkok or Chiang Mai but it does have some very significant historical attractions that make it well worth visiting.
Ayutthaya’s railway station is located to the east of what is known as ‘Ayutthaya Island’ because it is bounded on all sides by rivers and canals. The Island is where you will find the city’s main historical sites, in particular the Ayutthaya Historical Park which occupies an area of 2.89 square kilometres of the city’s historic centre. The historical park, which is the main attraction in Ayutthaya is over 4 km by road to the west of Ayutthaya Railway Station. By tuk-tuk from the train station the journey to the historical park costs around 100 THB.
Ayutthaya has plenty of accommodation both near the railway station and on the Island. The closest hotel to Ayutthaya Railway Station is the unique and and very cheap Baan Are Goong Riverside Homestay. Only slightly further away from the railway station is the more luxurious Krungsri River Hotel, which may better suit families and older travellers. Ayutthaya is not known for its nightlife in the same way as Bangkok or Kanchanaburi. A popular option for visitors staying overnight in Ayutthaya is to visit the Bang Lan Road Night Market, which has plenty of food stalls and a lively atmosphere.
