  • Well-maintained. Sometimes lacks signage. It's best to use an app to locate yourself

  • I think there are many people who go on tour because this place is far from Bangkok city, but Ayutthaya is recommended to go by train. The atmosphere of the station is exciting. The train is very old, but it is fun to reverse in the sense that the time slip. It is not a comfort like the Shinkansen of the Japan, but if you go at a designated seat, lunch will also be released. When you arrive, you can enjoy sightseeing as you like by bike. The rental bicycle shop is very kind and teaches us how to enjoy Ayutthaya. The tour is certainly effortless, but the price is high and the freedom is low. If you go privately, you can see Ayutthaya, which is not a tour. I think that it is worth several times to enjoy freely if you go. I went to a rental bicycle, but I was able to get along well with the tourists of other countries which turned by the rental bicycle. There are also restaurants and cafes around the park, so try it out.
