Amazing ancient ruins of the old city of Ayutthaya which was around in 1351 and was attacked by the Burmese in 1569 where they looted the city and many precious artifacts including Gold was taken. What is left today shows a vast area of beautiful...More
We took the train from Bangkok train station which took about two hours. A faster option would be the minibus, but we opted train to see the countryside and to mix with the local. For the first half an hour, the train moved along what...More
I've been here a couple of times. By far the best way to see it is in a small group with a private guide. There are a lot more temples than the big bus groups go to, and it's worth spending more time here to...More
Hired a private car from Sukhumvit to Ayutthya for the day with a driver to shuttle around the sites. Well worth it as the temperature and humidity was unbearable and the sites are spread in a vast area.
The upkeep of the sites was great...More
It's a must if you are travelling from Bangkok to northern Thailand. We could fully appreciate it thanks to a clear sky and some hours of sun (if someone is wondering if in July here it always rains, I can say that we had 10+10...More
We have a day between flights so visited the Ayutthaya Historical Park for the day-- at least parts of it. The site is very large with many monuments. We had a car so could drive between locations. Walking would be very far and very hot....More
Ayutthaya need at least 2-3 days for a visit. Would highly recommend hiring a bike and getting a map and just riding around. There are temples around every corner and the locals are super friendly.
We visited one temple with the lions in the Angkor...More

I cannot answer you question (just bungalows) - f about travel from Lamplaimat. What I can say is that we traveled from Bangkok’s Lamphong Railway Station vía an express train to Ayutthaya. The cost was $15 one way. The train made four stops and arrived in 1 hour and 20 minutes. The carriage was air conditioned. A meal and water were provided. We departed 10:15 and caught the last train out at 18:00 same day.
We visited Ayutthaya during a weekday. So I can’t say whether the sites are busier on weekends. What I can say is that I have seen an appreciable difference in traffic due to weekends anywhere in SE Asia. What is important to understand is that the town of Ayutthaya grew around the historical sites. Traffic is everywhere. We bicycled around to all the sites. Fun if not a little scary at times. I recommend searching the web for self directed tours to Ayutthaya. Good luck and enjoy. Ayutthaya is worth a see!

the problem is, as I stated in my review, they all tend to rush you on things you'd like to spend more time, and push you into places where they got extra income. So, if you'd prefer freedom, book a day trip with a private driver to Ayutthaya. You have to be upfront to tell him you want him to follow your direction and settle a price. but during the trip, you still have to act with insistence as they would seize any opportunities to "lure" you into shopping. So it is not too much about "reputation", but the way you send your signal.
