Heading to Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya is one of the most known pleases in Thailand. It is very interesting for foreigners to visit because of the history. It is also known as an UNESCO site. The first buildings are from 1350 and it supposed to be the second capital from the Siamese kingdom after Sukhothai. We booked our traintickets via Thai Railway, but you can also book them via 12Go. We took the train from Bangkok to Ayutthaya and within two hours we were arrived in Ayutthaya. The train itself was rather old and has big windows, which could open to provided us with some air. As it started to rain, it rained inside and the seats in the train became wet.
Temples in Ayutthaya
The first temples we visited were Wat Mahathat, Wat Ratchaburana, Wat phra Si Sanphet and Wihan Phra Mongkhon Bophit. Wihan Phra Mongkhon Bophit was rebuild and is still in use. The other temples are from the same age, but the difference is there. They all have their own character and their unique items. It was really an amazing site and the total opposite of what we have seen in Bangkok.
In a few days we will show you the rest of our trip in Ayutthaya. Tonight we are going to the nightmarket and eat some fishcakes and mango sticky rise. Thailand is starting to grow on us. If you want to see some of our trips in Bangkok, go to Temples and Palaces in Bangkok. See you soon.
