Ayutthaya, also known as Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, is the capital of Ayutthaya province. Founded in 1351 by King U-Thang, the city is now a historical park and is called the holy city.
About 80 km north of Bangkok, Ayutthaya is an island surrounded by Three Rivers; Chao Phraya, Lopburi and Pa Sak Rivers. With a population of more than one million, over 400 years, Siam was the capital of ancient Thailand. There are many fantastic temples and ruins.
In the city, there is an advanced handicrafts production such as stone carving, ceramic, musical instruments, and even design. Offering a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere, Ayutthaya is also an escape place for those who want to get away from Bangkok’s crowd. More than 4 million people visit Ayutthaya Historical Park, one of Thailand’s best places to represent the old culture.
