  • There are several sites we did with an organized tour, booked in Bangkok at July Travel (73 sukhumvit soi 4) a shuttle pick us up from the hotel to go to the bus that takes us around the various sites that are quite friendly to see , we went around the sites in the morning is more than enough because it's quite repetitive what we see but it's interrznt to see in relation to its history

  • We had a nice day in Ayuttaya, very nice sites and temple ruins, but watch out for a lot of maintenance in the low season, hence some scaffolding that gets a little scavenger. The sites are quite far from each other, and we often found ourselves on the road in the middle of the dense traffic, not necessarily reassuring when we have to ride left on bike ... so prefer the tuk tuk to go from one site to another. Very beautiful monuments though
