nik, I would normally make a point of visiting touristy place and seeing the sights any where in the world I travel, but not in Thailand. It is the only place I don't take the wife and the only place I can be really naughty and do all the things I really want to do, but hey mate do your own thing. I am retired now, so do a lot of traveling, unfortunately with the wife most of the time, but Thailand is my own holiday, a couple of weeks of the year that are mine nad I spend most of my life dreaming of my next trip there.

Other countries I go too, I see gorgeous young fillies and dream about BF'ing them, but would onkly be classed as a dirty old man if they knew what I was thinking. That does'nt happen in Patts. roll on August the 17th

Ayudthaya is not so far from Bangkok and can easily be visited on a day trip from there, if you can get out of bed early. Sukhotai is far but one of the nicest places in Thailand to me. I absolutely love temples and ruines and went there in 1993 for the first time. I went back last year and was very glad to see that all ruines are still well maintained. You can see all of them in 1 day (just rent a bicycle), but you will be arriving in the afternoon or evening by bus ( no trains going all the way to Sukhotai). You can have a nice room for 500 baht, at least that's what we paid for our bungalow. You don't need to go there for bars or girls, but I guess you already figured that out...

There are direct Bangkok Airways flights between BKK and Sukothai - takes 1hr 15 mins, cost 2,500/3,000 baht return (varies according to day of travel, advance booking etc.

I have just got back from a 3 day trip to Ayutthaya - catch the train from bangkok to Ayutthaya it will take about 1 hour 30 mins and the train cost is 15 Baht !! Then to get across the river the small boatride will cost you 4 Baht. A room will cost you from 250 baht up to about 400 Baht.

The Place is fantastic for temples!!

Yes i have been to sukothai , i caught the bus from the northern bus terminal in bangkok , the bus took about 9 hours , i think i caught the local bus not the vip bus . Sukothai is a very relaxed place , you rent a bicycle from the local guest hose and cruise round the historical park . very similar to many provincial thai cities , i caught the flight back to bangkok from sukothai airport, sukothai airport is the best airport i have ever been too , it feels like you are at a golf resort. people vist thailand for many reasons ,i still enjoy visiting the provinces from time to time .

Day trips from Bangkok to Ayutthaya are doable. As I lived in Ayutthaya for a year, and made day trips to Bangkok weekly. One day is to little time to see much of the ancient temples and palaces. I would suggest a few nights stay. Although nothing like BKK or Pats, there are some mongering opportunities, at Grand Market, and near by Chao Prom market.

Been to both - I came down to Sukhothai by bus from Chiang Mai - it's a pretty small city. There is a good sort of open air food court (where I ate frog, which was delicious) and a night market (where I saw people eating bugs like popcorn for the first time!). There are places you can stay there with your own little bungalow and rent a scooter and ride out of town to the ruins of ancient Sukhothai. I enjoyed a day out at the ruins greatly.

 

Moving on the Ayyuthaya by bus again, there is a kind of tourist quarter with restaurants and guesthouses - but the rest of the town was quite a bustling Thai city - not all modern like Bangkok, but big. The ruins and temples are located all over the place, so you need a scooter (easy to rent from your guesthouse) to go from place to place. I thought it was very nice too.

 

If you like dirty monkeys you could drop into Lopburi in between the two.

 

Don't know anything about mongering in these places though. I don't think there is much for western mongers. But I wasn't there for that.

You can see all this and more from a birds view at Mini Siam on Sukhumwit , have a beer and drive your scooter back to Beach Road..all this in about a hour..

^ LOL. You aren't seriously suggesting a visit to a naff tourist attraction as an alternative to the real thing, surely?
