Minus the Freaky Apes chasing after me of course and the game is over for me after visiting two temples. Lol. Excuse me but the heat and humidity that day was unforgivably bad that I asked my “Tuk-tuk” driver to bring me back to the train station to Bangkok instead of continuing on with the Temple tours.

I arrived in Ayutthaya past noon from Bangkok via mini van station somewhere near the Victory monument. To get around the temples, I rent a “Tuk-tuk” for 100 Baht per hour. Others choose to rent a bike for 40 Baht I think.

Recognized today as a UNESCO World Heritage site, this cluster of temples and ruins was built in 1350. The Kingdom of Ayutthaya was once the largest and wealthiest in Asia until it was overtaken and destroyed by the burmese army  in 1765.
