Ayutthaya

After a nightmare journey to ayutthaya, the Thai ladies scamming us and putting us on a bus to Bangkok, we arrived late afternoon to a lovely guesthouse. Opposite was a park that we wandered around and for the first time in 17 days heard peace and quiet. In the evening we stumbled across the Chinese celebrations! There were streets full of stalls, food, productions, dancers and many Chinese lanterns.
Early the next morning we hired bikes and navigated the streets of Ayutthaya to find an elephant park. There were 100’s of elephants, the oldest being 90years the youngest 2months. We spent some time feeding and playing with them before cycling off to find some temple ruins. Some of the ruins were brilliant (wat chaiwatthanaram) some were just okay (basically the rest).
In the evening we fought through the throngs of people still celebrating the Chinese New Year to find a recommended western food restaurant, woo!!
We really enjoyed the atmosphere in Ayutthaya and would recommend visiting.
