Ayutthaya – a Day in the Ancient Capital

Part 2 of 4 of my recent Thailand trip.

Ok I’ll admit that I was originally planning to do an overnight trip to this nearby city located about an hour (on a good day) from Bangkok. I thought it would be a good way to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. And I’ve always wanted to spend a night here to see what life is like away from the tour bus day tripper crowds. But I got caught up with friends and just hanging out in Bangkok so I only made it a day trip to the ancient city. Note to self, must stay a night or two here in the future.

Ayutthaya was the ancient capital of Thailand back when it was called Siam and was a major trade hub with foreigners. It’s now a major industrial area with large Nikon, Pioneer, Panasonic, Honda, etc factories. But the town central still has that slower paced old town vibe and is famous for it’s numerous temples.
