The ruins of Ayutthaya explored.


To really understand Thailand and how it became what it is today, you have to visit the former capital of Ayutthaya.

The ruin brick tempels are all that is left from the glory days of Thailand. While wondering around the Buddha statues and immense palaces that were contsructed by slaves and farmers, you will feel the grandeur of this ancient Kingdom.

The wat Chai Wattanaram temple is located on teh Chao Praya riverbanks and is so well preserved it still sparks the imagination of ancient times. Nearby Thai Kings traded animal skins, gold, gem stones, herbs and much more with foreign countries like Holland, Japan and Portugal.

The foundations of the city acted as a blueprint for Bangkok and you will know everything what happened before the capital switched from Ayutthaya to Bangkok.

After this tour you will know why Thailand was never colonized by foreign powers and why we are so proud to be Thai.
