I had always wanted to visit the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya. It has been on my bucket list for years & I was finally going to get to see it!
I took the 9 am train from Bangkok a journey that took 2 hours. Once I got there I took a Tuk Tuk to my hostel as I had no idea where it was. But, if you are staying within the city, I recommend you take the ferry across the river as its only 5 baht & the city is small enough that most things are within walking distances.
Seeing the small & charming city of Ayutthaya it was hard to imagine that in 1770, it was the largest city in the world with a population of 1 million people.
