Tag - Ayutthaya

Wat Chaiwatthanaram

Amazing ancient ruins of the Buddhist Temple near the old city of Ayutthaya, which dates back to 1351 and was attacked by the Burmese in 1569 where they looted the city and many precious artifacts including Gold was taken. What is left today shows a vast area of beautiful structures. Well worth the 50 baht(£1.15) for tourists.

Very popular when I visited which was at the weekend and there were many Thai visitors who had dressed in traditional costumes, which you can hire from local stalls so they can make the photos more real 🙂
I loved the place and got to try out my new camera, with lots more photos.


If you are traveling here, plan a day trip, it is about 1.5 hours north of Bangkok if you are taking a car, although you can also travel via boat I believe, but, you will need to check times.
Ladies be aware that if wearing short skirts or shorts you will need a sarong or something to cover your legs as you will be refused entry as it is a sign of disrespect. Also, do not have bare shoulders so bring a shirt or t-shirt if you have small tops on.
Most places like this in Thailand are sacred places to Buddhists, so be mindful of their culture.
