Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya (Are-yoo-they-yar) is located 90km north of Bangkok and once had been the capital of the kingdom of Thailand for many centuries between 1350 and 1767.  The historic city is listed as UNESCO World Heritage City and people can still see the remains of temples and palaces of the great kingdom until today.  Wah, cam skema jek bunyinya ya?

And, when I'm talking about many, the list of interesting historical sites you can visit is endless!!  So, for our daytrip last November, we managed to visit Wat Mahathat, Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Wat (forgot the name) and Wat Tha Ka Rong.  According to our guide, it is now 'winter' in Thailand but it was still hot, hot, hot!!  And after we came back, we now realized that the weather there was not as hot as here in Malaysia. No wonder they called it winter, hahah...

You get what I mean

















Arif & Mr.Tanawat, a good & reliable guide, Mr.nice guy.
















Floating market at Chao Phraya riverbank, closed for repairing. 





















Rupa-rupanya bulan lepas ada kejadian rempuhan bot yang menyebabkan beberapa orang hilang dihanyutkan arus deras. Sebab tu ditutup sehingga pembukan semula yang tak tau bila tarikhnya.  Sebelum ni pergi floating market di sungai kecil saja, bukannya luas cenggini.  Memang tengokkan airnya deras semacam, ngeri....

Arif beli makanan ikan
















untuk diberi makan kepada Pangasius Sutchi.






















Peliknya orang sana tak tangkap pun si Sutchi ni, jinak, besar-besar, tergolek-golek je kat situ. Kalau kat Malaysia, harus digulai tempoyak.

Aik, ada motel?
























Toilet daa.... equipped with ceiling fan for each unit.  























Toilet entrance, free, donation box provided



Cute!!



















Don't forget to request for 'Roti Sai Mai' whenever you're in Ayutthaya.  Roti Sai Mai is a unique Thai delicacy, sweet flavored cotton candy floss, wrapped inside a thin pancake. It's halal, sold by many Muslim vendors out there.






















Syedap!
