We said that a lot.
Early the next morning Molly and I jumped aboard a train headed to Ayuthaya, 85km north of Bangkok.
We started our exploration at the local museum.
Ayuthaya was the capital of Siam (Thailand’s previous name) from 1340 to 1767 when Burma raided the area. Because Ayuthaya was the capital, it has an especially rich collection of temples. These days most of the wats are in ruins (the Burmese decapitated most of the Buddhas)… but that just makes them more magical to explore, especially on bike.
We saw soooo many wats on this trip that I can’t tell you which is which. However, if you ever visit Ayuthaya just hop on a bike and take a ride around town. You’ll find them!
