Ayutthaya is a historic city located north of Bangkok in Thailand. It was once the capital of the Kingdom of Siam (what is now Thailand) and the center for commerce and global diplomacy. Today, Ayutthaya stands by its distinction as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It features one of the most impressive ruins, a fantastic look into the historic core of the country.
The Ayutthaya Historical Park is your key to uncovering the city’s storied past. Its sights have an outstanding universal value for their charm and mere presence. Visiting the park will introduce you to even more UNESCO World Heritage Sites in this part of the country, including Wat Mahathat, Wat Ratchaburana, Wat Phra Ram, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, and Wiharn Phra Mongkhon Bopit.
Ayutthaya is about an hour’s travel from Bangkok. Thailand has two international airports, Don Mueang airport and Suvarnabhumi Airport, which serve international flights from Seoul, Delhi, Tokyo, Ho Chi Minh City, Beijing, and others.
