Next stop Ayutaya or the old capital of Thailand. there are many ruins of old palaces and temples but the reason I wanted to go was to see the Buddha head that has been surrounded by roots of a Bodhi tree. It looked cool in the postcards! So we arrived and of course the guest houses were full so we decided to stay in a hotel. It was expensive and we were way out of place there. The next day we moved to the comforts of a guest house.
