Serving as the Thai capital for 417 years (1350 - 1767), Ayutthaya was once glorified as one of the biggest cities in Southeast Asia. Visitors can explore and appreciate Thai history in Ayutthaya. Marvel at the grandeur reflected through numerous magnificent structures and ruins concentrated in and around the city island, and surrounded by Chao Phraya, Pa Sak and Lopburi Rivers. Right in the very heart of the Ayutthaya city is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ayutthaya Historical Park.
