Buddha Power in Ayutthaya, Thailand

The beautiful city of Ayutthaya, Thailand which was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong and was the capital of what was then known as Siam. It became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai.

The ancient city of Ayutthaya is an island, surrounded by the Chao Phraya, Lopburi and Pa Sak rivers, and it’s quite a mixture of old and new. It's an easy day trip from Bangkok, but I decided to stay here for a couple of days to take in the history and the charms of the city.

Stay tuned for more of my adventures in Southeast Asia.

Happy Travels!
