Thailand Vlog Bite #1: The Lost City of Ayutthaya

Familiar with the iconic Buddha’s head in the roots of the bodhi tree? It’s in Ayutthaya, Thailand!

Just one hour and twenty minutes north of the bustling metropolis of Bangkok is the historic city of Ayutthaya.

Founded in 1350, Ayutthaya was a thriving trading port for its ideal location between India, China, and the Malay Archipelago. Its population grew to an impressive 1 million at the height of its power, making it the largest city in the world. However, in 1767 the great city of Ayutthaya was razed by the Burmese.

Now, dotted amongst modern concrete establishments are the stately ruins of the temple complexes of Ayutthaya. In this video, I take you on a journey to explore just a few of the countless ruins left standing as a testament to the once great city.

As always, thank you for watching!
