AUTHOR at Ayutthaya Thailand 2 JAN 2008

The Ayutthaya ruins date from the 12th century and are in the centre of the town of Ayutthaya, which is surrounded on all sides by canals and the large Chao Praya river (originating in Bangkok) to the eastern side of town. It consists of Stupas, Prangs and buddha platforms all done in the style of narrow brick stucco, which is used also in modern constructions. As a curiousity the ferry journey from the railway station to the town is a mere cost of only 2 baht (-.6c).
