Once a glowing empire, today a city of ruins. For more than four hundred years Ayutthaya was the capital of Siam, Thailand’s former name. Its glory years ended in 1767, when the Burmese invaded, pillaged and destroyed the city.
Thankfully, the remnants of hundreds of temples and palaces are still left in Ayutthaya for you to visit and admire. So hop in a tuk-tuk or rent a bike and explore this UNESCO World Heritage site with its Buddha statues of faded colors, crumbled temple walls and beautifully decorated high towers.
