This is definitely worth a visit if you are in Bangkok. it can be done as a day excursion from there, either by bus or by boat or a combination of these two. Better would be to stay there for a night and spend more time. it is a Unesco world heritage sight and with good reason. A lot of very beautiful tempels are spread over the city. you either need a car or bike or some other means of transport to be able to visit them all. Definitely worth the time!

The historic city of Ayutthaya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I loved the ruins and the history of the old kingdom of Thailand. I was disappointed that some of the ruins were not maintained well, I saw garbage in some of the areas. What I enjoyed most about this trip is the elephant ride. For 400 baht, you can ride an elephant around the ruins for 15 mins. An unforgettable experience that shouldn't be missed!

If you get a chance for a day trip from Bangkok to see old ruins, choose the Ayutthaya tour. The tour starts out by mini bus from Bangkok to Ayutthaya and return to Bangkok by boat where you'll be served a great buffet lunch. Its one of the best tours in Bangkok I have taken.

If you have the time, take the day trip to Ayutthaya! It's a smaller, more ruined, version of Cambodia's Angkor Wat, but being only a few hours on a CHEAP train (20B) from Bangkok, it is worth the day trip. You can walk from the Ayutthaya Train Station to the ruins in 15 minutes (with a short boat ride) and check out the ruins for a few hours, then catch one of many trains heading back to Bangkok. Temples usually cost about 20B-30B to enter, but some days are completely free. Definitely worth the visit if you have the time or are a Bangkok resident.

Wonderful place to go.
It's near Bangkok, so it can be done as a day trip (go by train, it's a great way to get there).
The ruins are wonderful and you will see the iconic Buddha image among the tree roots. The city itself is also pretty interesting, being a regular Thailandese city... Pretty cool to see how the locals live.
I had tons of fun in a night market at Ayutthaya.
