About Travel to Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya is the location of Thailand’s most popular, and arguably most interesting, historical park. From 1351 to 1767 Ayutthaya was the most important city in Thailand, then known as Siam, and its King was the most important ruler in a land which at that time had many rulers each with their own city state.
Ayutthaya grew in size and wealth over the centuries through trade. The city’s location on the Chao Phraya River, which runs through Bangkok into the Gulf of Siam, made it an ideal hub for trade between Myanmar, China and the Malay Peninsula. Ayutthaya also attracted foreign settlers from all over Asia including a substantial contingent of Japanese businessmen, as well as traders from Europe, most notably from Holland and Portugal. By 1700 some historians believe that the city’s population had reached 1 million, which at the time would have made Ayutthaya the largest city in the world.
Ayutthaya’s wealth and power came to abrupt end in 1767 when an army from Myanmar, the regional super power of the period, invaded. The city was deliberately set on fire, its buildings (including temples) ransacked with items of transportable value stolen and everything else destroyed out of malice.
According to legend city’s king, U Thong, died of starvation in forest trying to escape, whilst the future King Thaksin and the future King Rama I staged a daring escape from the besieged city and went onto liberate Thailand from its Burmese overlords. Most of what is left of the original great city is the 13 ruined temples of the Ayutthaya Historical Park. The historical park is located 4 km to the west of the train station. The easiest way to travel from the train station to the historical park is to take one of the many tuk-tuks which wait outside the train station. The standard fare for foreign visitors is 100 THB.
