Ayuthaya Kingdom, Thailand
The Kingdom of Ayuthaya was once the ancient capital of Thailand and was previously considered one of the most powerful cities in all of Southeast Asia.
The ruins of the ancient city are a series of Buddhist and Hindu inspired temples as well as various other religious shrines.
Ayuthaya Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site dedicated to the preservation of this magical historical area of Thailand.
The flood in Thailand in 2011 was a huge blow to Thailand’s magnificent ancient capital. Many of the national treasures were underwater but hopefully things will be restored and renovated.
Despite the recent troubles, it’s still easy to find cheap flights to Thailand.
