Coming to Ayutthaya, one must take a frog-headed tuk tuk (Tuk Tuk Hua Kop). Not only do tourists use these tuk tuks but the locals also use them as a common transportation mean. Around Ayutthaya City, many of these tuk tuks like you can see many taxis in Bangkok.
One of the best and cheapest ways to get to Ayutthaya is by train. Services leave from Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong Station throughout the day, taking around 90 minutes.
