Ayutthaya Historical Tours with Unique Things To Do


 

Ayutthaya through the Eyes of the Local

Dating back to 1350, Ayutthaya was established as the second capital of Siam Kingdom (aka Thailand). After 400 golden years of prosperity, the city was crushed and burnt to pieces during one of the wars.

Today, the remnants of Thailand's oldest capital are cherished World Heritage Site by UNESCO. And yes, Ayutthaya is still older than Bangkok. As Bangkok is now 236 years old (as of 2018). 

The old town is home to Ayutthaya Historical Park where uncountable grand and ancient temples stand strong against  time. In addition, the gigantic Reclining Buddha and Ayutthaya floating market await your discovery.  When it comes to local cuisine, the city is also famous for its tantalizing dessert Roti Saimai (Cotton Candy Wrapped in Sheet of Flour).
