The Historic City of Ayutthaya.

Ayutthaya is a city in Thailand, about an hour north of Bangkok. It was the capital of the Kingdom of Siam until a Burmese invasion in the 1700s. During this historical battle, the Burmese destroyed most of the city and chopped the heads off all the Buddha’s. Shortly afterward, the Thai people rallied together and successfully ousted the Burmese to reclaim their land, although now mainly in ruins. Since this time, they have built new Buddha’s around the temples as a sign of spiritual protection. Ayutthaya is now a UNESCO World Historical Site and a fascinating place to visit if you are traveling to Thailand. This is a great way to spend the day learning about the city’s history and capturing a few epic selfies.

About the author

Simply put, I love Thailand. I am a Canadian-born MBA graduate who has traveled to Thailand upwards of 20 times. From Chiang Mai to Phuket and Udon Thani to Kanchanaburi, I've been all over. When traveling abroad I like to learn the history and culture of each place I visit. My grasp of the Thai language is basic but each time I visit my vocabulary grows.
