From Bangkok to Ayutthaya takes some time, but it’s super easy and super cheap!
You need to go to the Bangkok Railway Station (Hualamphong // don’t buy anything before!), the train is leaving every 20 minutes and it’s 15 Baht per person (0,40€). It’s third class and there are only fans, but the other option costs 300 Baht, so its a easy way to save some money.
Ayutthaya is worth EVERY EFFORT! It’s just stunning, the most beautiful temples we have ever seen!
Be smarter than us:
1st: Take your passport (without its not possible) to rent a motorbike! It’s a huge area! We actually rented bikes, but it’s so exhausting, because it’s so hot and humid.
2nd: In Ayutthaya you have to pay to see every single temple. But don’t even start (like we did) to buy at the entrance every time again. You have to ask for a special ticket, which is valid for more temples.
The three most beautiful temples we saw, but we only made it to 5 from more than 15 worth-to-visit temples!
WAT PHRA MAHATHAT:
And of course (as everywhere) poor Elis everywhere, breaks my heart.
