Ayutthaya is one of the most famous historical and cultural cities in Thailand, this city used to be the second capital of the Siamese kingdom after Sukhothai. During a long time under the conflicts, Ayutthaya officially was overthrown by the Burmese army in the mid of the 18th century. The significant structures and treasures of this city were stolen and nowadays, some of them are founded in the Shwedagon Pagoda which is a temple in Yangon, Myanmar.
At present, Ayutthaya is an attractive tourist destination in Thailand that attracts both domestic and international tourists.
The Ayutthaya historical park is recognized a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this park is famous for its historical temples, museums, and palaces. Whereas, Wat Yai Chai Mongkon is one of the most highlight destinations in this area to visit. This structure is very unique made from redbrick, wrapped in orange cloth and leaning like Pisa tower in the far Italia.
Just an hour to drive from the capital of Bangkok, Ayutthaya is like other places in Thailand, it is known for its heat and harsh sun. It is highly recommended to depart the Ayutthaya trip in the early morning to escape the heat at noon.
If you are Thai, visiting Ayutthaya without eating roti sai mai is such a huge regret. Nobody coming to Ayutthaya forgets to buy a dish of roti sai mai and foreigner tourists are always advised to try it because it is the most famous kanom wan in this city.
