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!
The Dzong (fortress)
Our last day was an intense hike to the Tiger's Nest Monastery- It is 2000 feet up on a sheer cliff face! It's about a 3 mile, steep uphill hike (1 way). Not for the faint of heart, but well worth it!
