Day Trip to Ayutthaya, the Second Capital of Thailand

Nisha and I have been to Thailand many times before. Doing a day trip to Ayutthaya was on the cards for quite a while but for some reason Ayutthaya had always eluded us.

Now we can say Thailand holidays are incomplete without a tour of Ayutthaya. So after reading this go ahead and integrate Ayutthaya itinerary into your Thailand itinerary.

As a newbie to this event I was apprehensive about what I would do and whom I shall meet. Eventually I decided to keep my mind open and take it as it comes. I must say, I had a fantastic time and I strive to put to pen my sentiments and those of my friends. … Read the rest

Things to know about Bangkok

Have you been to Bangkok? If not this post is for you. Even if you have been there, I am sure you didn’t know all of these. You can read this to know some more.
