What’s Special about Ayutthaya?

The relics and ruins discovered in Ayutthaya are unrivaled anywhere else in the country. Stroll along an avenue of sacred stupas and gaze at an ancient Buddha statue swallowed up by vines and roots. As you walk, bicycle or tuk tuk through this ancient capital city, you’ll see why Ayutthaya is one of Thailand’s brightest gems. We invite you to lose yourself in Thailand’s ancient pageantry.

World Heritage Site

In 1991, Ayutthaya officially became a World Heritage Site for its “outstanding universal value.” Today, the remarkable ruins of the ancient city offers visitors a glimpse at what many consider Siam’s proudest moment in history.

Local Character

The vibrant culture that once made Ayutthaya one of the wealthiest and most majestic capitals of the East still lives on. The locals here are proud of their historical culture, cuisine and crafts.

Entertainment

At night, the ruins in Ayutthaya Historical Park are spot-lit, making a walk through the complex an ethereal experience. If you’re craving drinks, shopping and other entertainment, head to Grand Street and hit up the bars and night markets.

Regional Cuisine

As a cultural melting pot, Ayutthaya boasts a culinary scene full of borrowed and regional specialties. Try the boat noodles introduced by Chinese merchants or the roti brought from Muslim cultures. Dine at local eateries for Thai favorites with an Ayutthaya twist.

Language

Thai is the official language spoken in and around Ayutthaya, although you can rest assured that your private guide, hotel staff and many involved in tourism will speak English, as well as most denizens of Bangkok.

History

Ayutthaya was founded in 1350 as the second capital of Siam after the Sukhothai period. The Ayutthaya period lasted for 1767 years and established an open-door policy to foreign trade, making it one of the most worldly and wealthy cities of the East at the time.
