Ayuthaya is a sprawling city where the ancient ruins are spread out
among the modern day city. Renting bicycles was a wonderful way of
seeing both ruins and the city life. The liberating feeling of
gliding around under our own power being in control of our own
destination inspired us a few days later to rent motorcycles when we
were in the more remote parts of Thailand.
Having seen Ayuthaya's relatively modern temple ruins we decided to visit pre-Angor ruins close to the Cambodian border. On the way we picked up a polish traveler who didn't want to drive a motorbike but was happy to tag along.
