About Travel to Ayutthaya
The train journey from Phitsanulok to Ayutthaya is relatively short with pleasant scenery on route and we therefore recommend taking one of the day time trains. The journey is too short for a full night’s sleep, and if you travel at night you cannot see the striking scenery of the Central Region of Thailand with its endless vistas of rice fields periodically punctuated with villages, town and temples, most notably Lop Buri’s famous monkey temple. Travelling by day also enables visitors to avoid long waits from the time they check out of their hotel until the time they are permitted to check into the next one.
The main reason why most leisure travellers come to Ayutthaya is to visit its Historical Park, which is on the other side of the river from the train station in the south west corner of what is known as Ayutthaya Island, on account of its being bounded on all 4 sides by rivers and canals. By road the Historical Park is 4 km from Ayutthaya Railway Station, and if you take one of the many tuk-tuks which wait outside the front of the station the journey should cost you around 100 THB. The Historical Park covers an area of 2.89 square kilometres and features 13 old temples, an elephant park, a study centre and the remains of a 16th Century Japanese settlement. You do not need to pay to enter the Historical Park as a whole, but this is a separate fee for each of the attractions. Entrance to each of the temples costs 50 THB per person. The three most popular temples to visit are: Wat Mahathat, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, and Wat Phra Ram
