In 14-17century Ayuttaya dynasty was the key trading point where UK,Netherlands,Portugal,Japan had their own town. You can see a lot of temples which was a symbol of wealth and authority. アユタヤ 山田長政も17世紀初頭にここにおり その当時の日本人町は1600人ほどだったそうです。日本人遺跡町は最近作った様にて見るものはありませんが、アユタヤ王朝の仏教遺跡群は当時の繁栄が偲ばれます。

The entire town of Ayutthaya is the UNESCO site. You’ll need to drive around to see various sites, depending on your time, preference and tolerance to the heat
