Since it is kind of far away from the historic center, this place is not crowded. By the time I arrived, there was a documentary filiming team. They gave me advice for taking good photos.

This was the last temple we visited in Ayutthaya and we couldn't end our trip better. It was beautiful, an Lao the view on the river and the ancient city at the other side of it. Nice also the few remaining paintings.

There are plenty of Temples in Ayutthaya. If you are only on day tour make sure you choose the most interesting ones. Every corner of this temple is worth the snaps. Put this in your list. Don't miss.

We were given a tour of the Ayutthaya sites. Guide was informative. My kids were fascinated by the history. We learned a lot about past histories and cultures by touring the sight and building ruins.

Although a little far from the wat mahthat, the temples here are also amazing, different from wat mathat. It's worth coming here for a visit ! And why not if you're already there~
