Where to stay?[Bangkok 3 days incl. Ayutthaya]

Jump to last reply

Hi! My bf and I are traveling to Thailand in late September. We will be arriving on Saturday afternoon (just time to check-in, enjoy the hotel, get nice dinner and sleep early) and leave on Tuesday afternoon for Chiangmai (only Sunday and Monday full days).

As you see, our schedule will be tight. I've been checking things to do in Bangkok and we mostly want to visit the tops (temple of dawn, grand palace and emerald buddha, the flower market, the correction museum, erawan museum if there's time...) We want to fit a 1 day trip to Ayutthaya.

Given that most of the sights we're interested in are in Khaosan/ Old City, should we stay in that area? Is it good for visiting Ayutthaya, or should we find a more centric/better connected place? We don't plan to take a tour, but rather use the train to go there by ourselves.

It's the first time to Thailand and I'm not sure about the dimensions of Bangkok, the difficulty of public transport, etc.

Also any experience on going to Ayutthaya from Bangkok by yourselves (not guided tour) is more than welcome to help us planning our side trip!

Thanks for your help!
