Ayutthaya – The Thai Ancient City

/ February 9, 2016/ Asia, Thailand, Travel Journal/ 0 comments

Ayutthaya, or actually Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, is an ancient city located 80 kilometers north of Bangkok. Back in the days, it used to be a Thai capital and now it serves as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The city was founded in the 14th centrury and until it was sacked by the Burmese 400 years later, it was one of the world’s largest cities at that time with population perhaps reaching 1,000,000, sometimes known as the “Venice of the East”. The ruins of the old city are well preserved in the Ayutthaya historical park that comprizes a couple of spectacular temples.
