Just a short drive from Bangkok, Ayutthaya one of the many great places to get out of the hectic city for a day, you can catch a mini-van or hire a car for around 1,000THB (£20/$30). Once you’re in Ayutthaya city its best to hire a tuk tuk or some bikes if you don’t have your own transport as lots of the ruins are spread around and it’s a fair way to walk around in the heat! Most of the ruins have a very small or no fee for entry and have very little rules regarding climbing all over whatever you want.


There are also temples and elephants decked out for rides if that takes your fancy, overall Ayutthaya has a nice laid back atmosphere and is just a great place to spend a day chilled out.
