I took a day bike trip about an hour outside of Bangkok to the ancient city of Ayutthaya. Ayuthaya was founded in 1350 as the capital of Siam. (now Thailand) It was mostly destroyed in the 18th century by the Burmese, but the ruins are still absolutely stunning. I felt like I was in an Indiana Jones movie. Lunch included drinking from a coconut- SOOOOO delicious!
I can't say enough about the delicious food in Bangkok. I love Thai food in the states, but this was a whole other level of deliciousness. I even got to take a cooking class at the Blue Elephant, so we'll see if I can replicate anything at home!
Great little restaurant called Phuket Town
Cooking class at the Blue Elephant- included a tour through the morning market Watching them make the delicious Thai iced tea! Spices! Time to cook! We got to eat all our yummy food at the end! My favorite street food: coconut pudding cakes!
