– Ayutthaya: The remains of the day

Ayutthaya (full name: Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya), so called the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai, lasted from 1351 until 1750. It was destroyed during the war by the Burmese.
Nowadays, the Ayutthaya historical park is created from the ruins of Ayutthaya and is also recognized as the UNESCO Heritage Site.I have been on two short trips to Ayutthaya. With all the remains from hundreds of years ago, the scenery here usually attracts many photographers from everywhere.From Bangkok, you can easily take a bus at the station near Mo chit area and travel to Ayutthaya. It probably takes about an hour to get there. Here are some photos that I took during the two trips:
