Ayutthaya is the old capital of Siam (old Thailand) until the 18th century where it was destroyed by the Burmese. This historic city is full of old palaces and temples that are still kept in quite a good shape. Walking through these ruins gives you a real feeling of being in the past in Thailand, with huge temples being built out of bricks and also old Buddha statues. Here we present you with things to do in 2 days in Ayutthaya.
Most of the accommodations offer the possibility of doing a boat trip surounding the island of Ayutthaya and visiting 3 temples, including the most famous one by sunset. The price is 250 Bhat per person including pick up from the hotel and the tour goes from 15h30 until 18h. It's definetely worth it.
One day you could do this tour and the other day we would recommend taking a bike and enjoying all the temples in the city center.
The most famous temple there is the one having the head of Buddha in between a tree that grew up surrounding the Buddha's head
Most of them are quite different from each other.
Apart from this you can see water iguanas in the river!
We were also lucky during our bike day and happened to be at a temple where people were flying their birds and some of the birds just went on top of our heads.
However, unfortunately also people riding elephants at Ayutthaya. We saw that the elephants were having chains to be controlled and it is popularly known that the conditions they have to do such walks are not good for the animals...
To compensate the previous photo I will put a nice shot of some Thai bees polinating. They have a different color than common European bees.
I hope you liked this post! Happy travelling and Christmas is getting close ^^
