08. Historic City of Ayutthaya
If you want to visit the ancient glory of Thailand then this is the place for you. Ayutthaya is a place where visitors can wander the haunting but romantic ruins of the former capital. It was an important city once and the old places and temples here are a testament of this. It is not far off from Bangkok, you just have to take a short bus trip or train ride. If you’re on a more leisurely schedule, plan on spending a few days in the ancient capital and rent a push-bike to tour both the old city and the new.
