The ancient city of Ayutthaya was once the capital city of Siam until 1767, when it was ransacked and burned to the ground by the Burmese. Much of the city was built from stone so survived the attack, leaving plenty of temples, palaces and stone Buddha ruins for visitors to admire. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ayutthaya is just a one-hour drive north of Bangkok, yet the peaceful enclave feels a million miles away from the bustling capital.
