Ayutthaya Travel Guide
Ayutthaya, Thailand's prosperous Old Kingdom, is only 70 km north of Bangkok. Ayutthaya's town is an island surrounded by rivers. On the island, canals were dug to connect communities together. In the old days, people used these rivers and canals as the channel of transportation. This is why Ayutthaya is called Venice of the East.
Ayutthaya is a very important historical city of Thailand. Before succumbing to Burma in 1767, Ayutthaya had been a prosperous city in many ways, politic, economic, and cultural for as long as 417 years.
