The Beauty of Ayutthaya Ruins, Thailand

Aside from the mouthwatering coconut ice cream that we've devoured under the scorching heat of the sun, it's the Buddha head burrowed in the tree roots of Wat Mahathat Temple that really fascinated me during my visit in Ayutthaya, Thailand. It was remarkable. The idea of how it got there was unimaginable.

This particular site in the Ayutthaya Historical Park is sacred. It cannot be touched and can only be photographed from a kneeling position. One must be in the same level of the Buddha head when taking photos of it. Literally, it cannot be looked down upon.

Wat MahaThat Ayutthaya Thailand

Ayutthaya is the stunning ancient capital of Thailand. Unfortunately, the Burmese army destroyed it in the 18th century. The historic city of Ayutthaya is considered one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Now, the ruins of the old city characterized by its impressive stonework and gigantic monasteries give visitors a sense of what Thailand was like in the past.

The Ayutthaya Historical Park is located on an island surrounded by three rivers, including the popular Chao Phraya River. From Bangkok, one can get to Ayutthaya via train, bus, van or chartered taxi. But I must say that the most comfortable way to go there would be via boat! We've availed the Ayutthaya Grand Pearl River Cruise Tour to get there and didn't regret a thing.

Try it too! Visit the World Heritage City of Ayutthaya and sail back to Bangkok along famous Chao Phraya River on a Grand Pearl cruise ship.
