  • Although, it was such a tiring journey with the hot sun blazing hot above our heads, but it was well worth it at the end of the day. It was a tour called Ayutthaya yes Ayutthaya, the local tour guide took us to about five sites, it was nice but make sure eat something, breakfast, anything, or carry what you can eat with you and enough water (although the water may get hot quickly become of the hot sun) just be hydrated for your own good, carry extra clothes, the comfortable shoes to walk easily around with. I don't know if it's easier to go on your own or with a tour guide, but I think the locals will know the entire Ayutthaya tour better. But whichever you prefer, just don't forget to eat breakfast or carry what you can eat, it is an entire day tour with the local tour agencies and lunch is only at lunch time, and with them you have to leave your hotel at about 6:00 in the morning or 7:00 which is quite early from within Bangkok. I only ate because I thought I should not skip my breakfast (and that was the best decision I took that day). It was a good tour.
  • Ayutthaya ruins, it's cool. Fun place to check out in Ayutthaya. It's not overly huge, so you can eee most of it in 20-30minutes, I guess. I would say it's a must if you go there. Its a little crowded but really not that bad. Fun little day trip when coupled in with the floating market, royal vacation Palace and an elephant ride, 😉😉
