Went on my honeymoon. Took us 4 hours to find it (from Munich!) and by the time we got there, a thunderstorm with hail came down, sending everyone down the mountain! 10 minutes laters, the sun was shining and it was beautiful weather again. Gotta love the Alps.
Founded c. 1350, Ayutthaya became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai. It was destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century. Its remains, characterized by the prang (reliquary towers) and gigantic monasteries, give an idea of its past splendour. One of 5 World Heritage Sites in Thailand!
