About Travel to Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya is fairly small city with around 50,000 permanent residents with an interesting history and the best archaeological park in Thailand. Ayutthaya was the capital city of Thailand, then called Siam, from 1351 to 1767. Ayutthaya is believed to have been one of the largest cities in the world during its heyday attracting international trading partners from Europe and the Far East, with various foreign groups setting up their own communities outside the city walls.
Ayutthaya’s four century long dominance as the major economic and cultural centre in South East Asia came to an abrupt end in 1767 when the Burmese invaded the city, killing the King, and destroying nearly all the buildings, although importantly the future King Taksin of Thonburi and Kind Rama I of Thailand both managed to escape following the invasion.
There are temples and palaces to visit all around Ayutthaya, including in the Royal Place at Bang Pa-In 20 km south of Ayutthaya, however, most of the sites worth visiting are located within the Ayutthaya Historical Park on Ayutthaya Island. The centre of the city is described as an island because it’s bounded on all four sides by rivers and canals. The historical park is 4 km by road to the west of Ayutthaya Railway Station.
The park covers an area of 2.89 square kilometres and contain 16 attractions, including 13 historic temples. You don’t pay an entrance fee to get into the park itself, but you do need to pay a 50 THB to go into each of the temples. The best three temples are generally considered to be Wat Phra Si Samphet, Wat Phra Ram, and Wat Maha Tat.
