Ayutthaya was the second capital of Thailand after Sukhothai and an easy day trip from Bangkok. Now a modern Thai city it still has all of its old ruins scattered throughout. The easiest way to get around is to hire a tuk tuk driver for the day who will take you to all of the sites but its worth asking to be taken to specific places if there are other things you would like to see.
