Huge overwhelming large site, which has some major sites that are occasionally overrun with tour bus groups. That said, we moved away to "lesser" sites and just enjoyed the atmosphere. There is just so much to see, but it is not always possible to see...More

hi, Ayutthaya is about 80 kilometers north of Bangkok (approx 2 hrs drive). Ancient capital with extensive archaeological site eg. temple. Definitely worth the visit. Just bring umbrella with you and you will be fine.
