    Elephant Rides

    by kenningst Written Oct 4, 2008

    The elephant rides here way too expensive for both Ayutthaya and also Thailand standard. I have a backpacker told me that you could do it at a much lower price in Chiang Mai anda also in Chiang Mai the elephants will track through the jungle while the ones here just walk along the street.

    Give it a miss if you can.

    From old town to Ayuthaya bus terminal

    by yuet29 Written Mar 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The buses dont indicate bus number as '5' but in Thai script. So even I know I need to take bus number 5 to Ayuthaya bus terminal for the long distance buses ticket, I dont know which bus to board.

    I admit I am a bit stupid asking tuk-tuk guy which bus is '5', but I really dont have a choice because Ayuthaya people know too little english. The tuk-tuk guy will either dont want to answer you or point a wrong bus to you.

    From train station to the old town

    by yuet29 Written Mar 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you get-off from the train, a lot of tuk-tuk driver surrounding you offer to drive you to the old town, but actually based on the map, the old town is just behind the train station. Cross a small bridge opposite the train station and you are in old town.. you need to ask locals or explore yourself for the bridge.. tuk-tuk guy for sure wont tell you.

    AYUTTHAYA - DIY

    WAT Chaiwattanaram

    I would strongly recommend you guys to do it yourself .
    DO NOT join any tour agencies from bangkok which offer the so called one day Ayutthaya trip and you will have about 3-4 hours visit only. And you will visit 4-5 ruin temples in the one day tour.
    You will be RUSHED, very RUSHED, not even to focus for a shot

    Take a bus from Bangkok bus terminal to Ayutthaya and hire a TUK TUK for the ruin sites, you got plenty of time to discover the beauty of Ayutthaya.

    Elephant Ride

    Riding the Elephants

    This is taken while on my Elephant Ride. One of the good things about the elephant ride is that it gives the elephants something to do since they have already been trained and probably would't do good to be released back into the wild. Elephants have become a problem since the ban on Tree cutting in the forested areas. Before the ban the elephants and their trainers had steady work! I guess they still do. Now it's hauling us goofy looking foreigners around on them!

    Elephant Ride

    It is kind of expensive for the short little ride you go on. And it is not really that exciting! If you have a chance to ride an elephant in a jungle area do it there and skip this one. But if you want to ride an elephant down the street and back go for it. I took my son it. He enjoyed himself. We don't have elephants in Kodiak so I figured what to heck we'll go.

    If you will visit Chiang Mai the elephant ride in Ayuthaya is not a worth ride.
    It rides along the streets near the cars and its much more expansive than in CM
