Bangkok Ayutthaya Train Schedules and Fares

A good way to visit the ruins of the ancient capital of Ayutthaya, is on a Bangkok Ayutthaya train.

The trip by train takes from around one and a quarter hours to two hours (depending on the type of train) to cover the 71 km distance by rail and you could decide to spend the night in the old capital, or just make a day trip out of it and return back to Bangkok.

Arriving at Ayuttaya Railway Station

The railway station is just off "the island" where most of the the old capitals ruins are located.

All you have to do is walk straight ahead as you come out of the station and after a few minutes walk there is a small boat that will take you across the klong (canal) to the old city area for just 5 Baht.

Once on the island, you will find plenty of places to stay, with the main backpacking area just 5 - 10 minutes walk away (Turn right, then left down the main road).

Here, you will also find plenty of places that rent bicycles out and this is a great way to travel around all the old city ruins.

Alternatively, if your not staying long, hire a Tuk Tuk to take you around. You will have to negotiate hard to get a good price, but they are a good way of seeing most of the sights in a short space of time.
