About Travel to Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya is a fairly small city, with a population of just over 50,000 permanent residents, which has an very important place in Thai history. Ayutthaya was the second capital city of Thailand after Sukhothai. Ayutthaya was established in 1351 by King U Thong who moved his royal court there from Lopburi following an outbreak of smallpox. Ayutthaya developed over time to have an estimated population of over 1 million people by the start of the 18th Century, which made it one of the largest cities in the world at the time. Ayutthaya’s meteoric rise as a thriving metropolis came to abrupt end in 1767 when an army from Burma invaded, and destroyed much of the city. Some of the inhabitants escaped, foremost amongst these were the future King Thaksin, who established a new capital in Thonburi, and the future King Rama I who established the current royal dynasty of Thailand and made Bangkok its capital.
Ayutthaya has an unique geography, with the centre of the city being effectively an island bordered on all four sides by rivers and canals. The railway station is located to the east of this island. Much of the island centre of Ayutthaya of taken up by Ayutthaya Historical Park which covers an area of 2.89 square kilometres and contains 13 historic temples, an elephant park and the remains of a Japanese settlement. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants in Ayutthaya but not much in the way of nightlife. For most of the year the liveliest place to go at night in Ayutthaya is the Ban Lang Road Night Market, which is a great place to try the city’s famous boat noodles dish.
