Ayutthaya, an ancient city in Thailand founded in 1350 by King U Thong. In late 1700s, the city was destroyed by Burmese army. The ruins of Ayutthaya are still standing and they tell the stories of a once prosperious city. Unfortunately due to the recent floods in Thailand, the ruins underwent further damag and we weren't able to see the Grand Palace of Ayutthaya. On our way to Ayutthaya, we saw what the flood had done to the villages. Telephone poles showed that the water was at least 5 feet high and garabage where everywhere. It seemed not much has changed since the flood receded.

Apparently there were lots of elephant rides for tourists around the area. After the flood, only a few has returned.
