Ayutthaya Historical Park (อุทยานประวัติศาสตร์พระนครศรีอยุธยา), Thailand (part 1)

Ayutthaya Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site in Ayutthaya, Thailand and is home to ruins from the Ayutthaya Kingdom (1351 to 1767). Ayutthaya is only a one hour train ride from Bangkok and can be done as a day trip though I ended up staying the night,
