Ayutthaya Ancient City Tours & Trips
One of Thailand’s hidden archaeological gems and ideal spot to learn about the nation’s rich history, Ayutthaya was the capital and trading hub of an ancient Kingdom of Siam dating back to the 14th century. The city’s acclaimed ruins and historical sites can be explored on guided Ayutthaya tours within the vast Historical Park and World Heritage Site.
Resting peacefully on an island at the confluence of three rivers, the Park’s layout is similar in style to Cambodia’s world-famous Angkor Wat temple complex, but, of course, is less well-known. Although in a damaged state of sorts, surveying the crumbling yet magnificent Buddhist temples, royal palaces, monasteries and imposing statues, you can almost sense the former grandeur of what was one of Asia’s most powerful cities.
