Kicking off with some basics, Ayutthaya (officially Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya) is actually a province 80km or 1.5hrs north of Bangkok and is covered by World Heritage listing by UNESCO.  Ayutthaya, was the seat of the Kingdom of Siam and a prosperous trading port from the 14th century until it was razed by the Burmese in 1767. The old city ruins, with Buddhist temples, monasteries and statues, now form Ayutthaya Historical Park.  Somehow after being in Thailand for some time, Ayutthaya alluded me but I have finally made the pilgrimage to the old city after much anticipation.  What I was expecting to see, was a combination of Chiang Mai's city ruins, with perhaps the visual impact of Cambodian ruins. Well I got what I was wishing for. The Historical Park sites on an area of 289 ha. Extremely large, many tourists take the opportunity to rent bicycles to allow them to cover the who area with more ease.   With the area founded c. 1350, Ayutthaya became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai. It was unfortunately  destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century. Its remains, characterized by the prang (reliquary towers) and gigantic monasteries, give an idea of its past splendor.  Ayutthaya is usually visited as part of a packaged day trip out of Bangkok, which usually includes stops at the Bang Pa In palace as well as the Bang Sai royal arts center.  You can easily spend a day exploring the whole park, or simply have a quick stop and still feel fulfilled by what you will have seen. The park is relatively low pressure compared to many other tourist places in Thailand.  Being able to photograph the gigantic monasteries as the sun sets gives a whole new perspective to the place, only to be outdone by visiting the outer perimeter and shooting some night photos when all of the temples are light by spotlights bringing out the magnificent shadows and details turning it into quite an eerie place.
