The Old Capital of Thailand (Ayutthaya)

Dating back to 1350, Ayutthaya was established and was considered the second capital of Siam Kingdom or Thailand as it is now. After 400 years of governing, the city was demolished during the war. The city is renowned for its historical park that has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The ruins are the remnants of how prosperous Ayutthaya once was. Let’s dive into its vivid history and relive it with your own eyes.

Whilst the historical park is a huge thing that people come to visit, there is a lot more Ayutthaya can offer. Visitors can visit local communities, nearby cities and natural scenery for an exclusive experience. The Muslim community in Ayutthaya is renowned for its unique identity. They are often associated with traditional snacks like Roti Saimai (A cotton candy wrapped in roti dough) and goat’s milk. Join a local expert and bring home something different with you.
