  • Address: Phra Nakhon Sri Ayutthaya, Thailand
  • Hours: Open daily
Prior to Bangkok becoming Thailand’s capital, Ayutthaya was the center of the Siamese Kingdom, from 1351 to 1787. Known throughout the world for its riches and open attitude towards foreign traders, the kingdom prospered for over 400 years before falling at the hands of the Burmese after a 15-month siege.

Once a majestic city with three palaces, 400 temples, a succession of 33 kings and numerous dynasties, Ayutthaya and most of its heritage (art, literature and historical records) was destroyed in the battle with the Burmese. Visitors can still get a good sense of Ayutthaya's former glory, however, in the ruins of the old city and what remains of the imperial palace.

Architecture and history buffs will enjoy the intriguing mix of architectural styles that clearly show a strong Khmer (Cambodian) influence. Such is the significance of this historic city and its surrounds, that it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Practical Info

Ayutthaya is 76 km (47 mi) north of Bangkok and takes about one and a half hours by train, bus or car. Many people visit the historic city on an organized day trip from Bangkok.
