Ayitthaya (Old Capital of Thailand)
You can visit the original capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya. Ramble through the ruined palaces by bicycle, foot or if you are feeling adventurous on the back of an elephant.
Take time to explore the little-visited northeastern part of Thailand, especially Phimai, one of the most important Khmer historical sites in Thailand, dating from the 11th century.
