Ayutthaya is a wonderful and highly recommended place to visit while in Thailand.
Its proximity to Bangkok(80km) makes it easier to reach even for those on shorter time frames.
The rich culture display offered by the archaeological park and its surroundings make the old capital of Siam a must-see.
For that, you have to arrive there first:
How To Get From Bangkok To Ayutthaya
Trains depart from Hua Lamphong Railway Station, 3rd class seats are enough due to the short lasting trip, still 2nd class is available if you would like some extra comfort.
The 3rd class seats will cost 15 baht each and take 2,5 hours.
There are many trains that run this route during the day, usually buying in advance is not necessary, unless public holidays are going on.
We chose the train because of its scenic quality and to try something new compared to our last Ayutthaya trip. Apart from that, we rode trains to several locations in Thailand and we like this trip style.
For those who are arriving at Don Mueang Airport and wish to go directly to Ayutthaya, there’s a train stop just beside the airport. Follow the signs through the footbridge to the Amari Airport Hotel direction.
If time is a concern to you, buses are a little faster, but for that to be true your location in Bkk has to be considered.

This was our 2nd trip to Ayutthaya, the first was done by bus back in 2014.
Buses depart from Mo Chit taking around 1-2 hours and costing 60 baht, if it will be faster than the train, depends on your location in Bangkok. If you are staying near the train station, for example, the time to get to the bus terminal will add up.
Both train and bus are a nice way to do it, the location of your hotel in Ayutthaya also can help you to decide which one to pick, especially if you are walking to it when arrive.
Mo Chit Bus Terminal – สถานีขนส่งหมอชิต (Also known as Northern Bus Station or Chatuchak Bus Terminal) *Not to be confused with Mo Chit BTS skytrain station. BTS(skytrain): Mo Chit Station – Sukhumvit line, THEN TAKE A TAXI.
Best way to get there from Bangkok is by taxi.
Many of the normal city taxis in Bangkok will bring you to Ayutthaya for a previously accorded fixed price.
If you are on a group and/or don’t want to take public transport it is a great option.
The rate asked is not very high, usually about 2000 baht round trip.
