About Travel to Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya is a small city with around 50,000 residents located 80 km by road to the North of Central Bangkok. Modern Ayutthaya is city of relatively little importance compared to other larger settlements in Thailand, but at one time it was the most important trading centre in the world and the capital of Old Siam. Remnants of this fascinating historical period have been preserved acorss the city.

History of Ayutthaya

From 1351 to 1767 the Kingdom of Ayutthaya was the most important of the many independent kingdoms within what later became the unified Kingdom of Thailand. With the exception of two short periods, Ayutthaya was the capital city of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya and the city grew and prosperous. Ayutthaya was a city built on trade and its location at the confluence of 3 major rivers facilitated the transport of goods in large volumes.

The more effective of the Kings of Ayutthaya, particularly King Narai, actively pursued closer relationships with other countries and at one time the city hosted permanent settlements of Portuguese, Dutch and Japanese traders. The population of the city grew enormously to an estimated 1 million by 1700. An influx of people were attracted to the city by the economic opportunities.

Unfortanately, like many great civilisations, the Kingdom of Ayutthaya went into decline over a long period until the city came to a dramatic end in 1767 when an army from Burma managed to break through the city’s defences and destroyed most of it, stealing the gold in Ayutthaya’s temples to use to decorate temples in Burma. By this time European settlers had already been expelled from the city and the royal family of Ayutthaya had weakened itself through infighting each time a new King needed to be appointed.

Geography of Ayutthaya

The centre of Ayutthaya is often described as Ayutthaya Island as it is surrounded on three side by rivers and a man made canal on the Northern edge of the city centre. The island is approximately 4.3 km long and 2 km wide, and this is the area which tends to be the most popular with tourists because of the facilities there, and the Ayutthaya Historical Park.

Ayutthaya Railway Station is located on the other side of the Pa Sak River from Ayutthaya Island. It’s much too far to walk easily from the railway station to the town centre so we advise taking one of the many tuk-tuks which park outside the railway station to reach the city centre.

Ayutthaya Historical Park

Ayutthaya Historical Park occupies much of the Western half of Ayutthaya Island. There’s no entrance fee to the park itself, but you do need to pay a fee to visit most of the 13 old temples within the park. The three most popular of the temples in Ayutthaya Historical Park are Wat Maha Tat, Wat Phra Ram and Wat Phra Si Samphet. Wat Phra Si Samphet is particularly notable for its three large chedi towers, and configuration of smaller chedi, all aligned to the position of the moon and stars in way which some researchers believe to be similar to the design of temples in South America.
