AYUTTHAYA – THE ANCIENT CAPITOL CITY OF THAILAND, TEMPLES AND HISTORY

Hello guys, I hope you’re all doing well!

We just sat down at a small cafe to have a little coffee break. We have been walking around all day exploring temples. There is so much to see here, it’s crazy to me that this city isn’t talked about as much as other places in Thailand. I had never heard of it before, and we found out about it by talking to the locals in Phangan when we asked for cool places to visit with lots of nature and maybe some temples. Oh did we come to the right place!

We have three days here and we try to divide all the sights over the course of the days spent here. Both so we don’t get “templed out” (yes it’s apparently a real thing), which would be really bad since were going to Cambodia for Ankgor Was in a few months. But anyways, today we started with Wat Mahathat and Wat Ratchabura.

What Mahatat was the place, hundreds of years ago, where all the royals performed their ceremonies and held important events. And did you know that Ayutthaya is the old capitol of Thailand? But that was a really long time ago. But so cool, and I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this place!
