Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, it consists of many royal buildings built in many contrasting Architectural styles; predominantly – Thai, Chinese, Italian and Victorian. Bang Pa-Inn (the Summer Palace). Built-in the 17th and restored in the 19th century. The palace architecture is a fusion of both Southeast Asian and European design. Stroll around the majestic buildings and vast gardens, set around a grand ornamental pond.
Wat Phanan Choeng, It contains the oldest large cast bronze Buddha image in Ayutthaya, called "Phrachao Phananchoeng", built-in A.D. 1325; it is made of stucco in the attitude of subduing evil. A small room to the right of the main hall contains a nice collection of Buddha images and the room is painted with many individual unique pictures, in bright colors offset with gold.
Wat Yai Chaimongkon, The large pagoda from far away, and some it's ruined appear on well-known photos of temples in Thailand. Constructed in the reign of King U-Thong, the temple features a large reclining Buddha in saffron robes in its own ruined Wiharn, and, most spectacularly, a huge chedi swathed in golden cloth set in a courtyard which is lined by Buddha images all wearing saffron robes.
Vihara Phra Mongkhon Bophit, an impressive building that houses a large bronze cast Buddha image. It was originally enshrined outside the Grand Palace to the east, but it was later transferred to the current location and covered with a Mondop. During the second fall of Ayutthaya, the building and the image were badly destroyed by fire. The building currently seen was renovated but does not have as beautiful craftsmanship as the previous ones.
Wat Mahathat is a large temple that was quite thoroughly ransacked by the Burmese. Several leaning prangs of Ayutthaya are still feebly defying gravity though, and the rows of headless Buddhas are atmospheric. This is also where you can spot the famous tree that has grown around a Buddha's head.
Ayothaya floating market, has a lot of attractions such as traditional costume, stunning architecture, unique culture and tradition, authentic amusement, folk performance, and the simple lifestyle of Thai people. It is known as the tourism hub for both domestic and international tourists to enjoy the pleasant environment and gorgeous scenery in a Thai style.
