The Ancient City of Ayutthaya

Our last sight-seeing venture was to the ancient capital of, then, Siam.  This involved getting up very early and catching the 6:28 train near us to the main station in downtown Bangkok,   then catching the train to Ayutthaya, a trip of about two and a half hours altogether.  There we hired a tuktuk to drive us about to the various ruins of interest.  It was quite an interesting place.  We visited seven temples, each somewhat the same but a little different.  Enjoy the photos!

One thought on “The Ancient City of Ayutthaya

  1. Bonnie & Chuck,

    We have been following your blog online- very interesting. It is good to hear you have returned safely. I see some western influence showing up among the traditional scenes. Thanks for sharing with us. Hope to see you in Wisconsin if your schedule allows. The offer to ride the bus from here still stands.

    Phil
