Ayutthaya city is the capital of the Ayutthaya Province in Thailand. This ancient city was destroyed by the Burmese army in 1767 and the ruins now form the Ayutthaya Historical Park. This is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I felt so honoured to be able to visit this great place, thanks to my ex-uni mate from USM, Manida. Manida is half Thai and is currently working in Bangkok. It's usually very difficult to get hold of her as she travels for work during the weekends. Thank goodness in my recent Bangkok trip, she was able to take a day off on Saturday to drive us to Ayutthaya. It took about 1 hour from Chatuchak (that's where we met up with her) to our destination.

We didn't visit all the sites there, instead we took our own sweet time covering Wat Mahathat.... and it was indeed the highlight of my trip!
