Ayutthaya







Of all the places that I have visited in Thailand, now and in the past years including the beautiful beaches and islands, this has been my absolute favourite. Ayutthaya was the old capital of Siam (1350-1767), there is so much to visit here, so many ruins I mean, since the entire city was destroyed in 1767 by the Burmese army. But also so many temples, less tourists than in other parts of the country, and a lovely atmosphere. Maybe because I like ruins, or maybe because I am a buddhist... I don't know, but I found Ayutthaya to be really really something! Enough words, just images now.

    1. Did you know that that movie was banned in Thailand because it is disrespectful towards the King, and distorts history? The movie was shot in Malaysia.
