Ayutthaya is a great historical world heritage site. The second Siamese capital, after Sukhothai, was once a prosperous Siamese trade and political center. It was devastated by the Burmese invasion, but still draws a healthy crowd of tourists and locals alike, as the city is bursting with stories to tell, and great food to taste!
In this photo blog episode, we will share some of the amazing photos from our Great Ayutthaya Adventure.
