Ayutthaya is filled with massive ancient temples ruins, easily reached on a day trip from Bangkok. The Historic City of Ayutthaya, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, served as the second capital of Thailand. Its strategic location between China, India, and the Malay Archipelago made Ayutthaya the trading capital of Asia. It once held the title as the largest city in the World. This place is where you can find the iconic sight of the head of Buddha covered by roots, in Wat Mahathat (temple).
