A visit to this archaeological ruin should be on your bucket list.

A view of Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

About fifty miles north of Bangkok, Ayutthaya is a popular day trip. The journey is pleasant, along the Chao Phraya River, and the site itself is impressive. Ayutthaya was the second Thai royal capital, established in the 14th century and destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century.

Today, relics of three palaces and hundreds of temples have been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Those who don't have time to visit Angkor Wat will appreciate the ancient city's Cambodian influences.
