About Travel to Ayutthaya
The relatively small town of Ayutthaya, with around 50,000 permanent residents, was once the capital of Thailand and at one time probably the largest city in Asia. Not much of the former metropolis remains today.
The city fell to invaders in 1767 who destroyed most of it. Of the few members of the city’s ruling class who escaped the destruction were the next two kings of Thailand, King Thaksin and King Rama I, founder of Thailand’s current royal dynasty. The largest cluster of remnants of this ancient capital are 13 ruined temples grouped together into the Ayutthaya Historical Park, which you can enter for free, although a charge of 50 THB per temple is levied on foreign visitors to enter each temple enclosure.
Ayutthaya Historical Park is located on what is described as ‘Ayutthaya Island’ which is the square central area of the city sourrounded on four sides aby rivers and defensive moats. It’s over 4 km by road from Ayutthaya Railway Station to the historical park. The easiest way to travel between the railway station and the historical park is to take one of the many tuk-tuks which wait out the railway station. The standard fare for foreign visitors is 100 THB.
Because of Ayutthaya’s closeness to Bangkok, a fairly small proportion of the people who come to Ayutthaya to visit the historical park choose to stay overnight in Ayutthaya. Ayutthaya, nonetheless, has a good range of hotels, some of them with interesting riverside locations and set within old wooden buildings. In terms of nightlife, Ayutthaya doesn’t have much. In the evening many of the Ayutthaya’s residents choose to visit one the markets, the best of which in terms of food is the Bang Lan Road night market.
