Ayutthaya was included in Forbes magazine’s list of the 50 best cities to visit during the post-pandemic period. Forbes chose Ayutthaya, not for its natural beauty but also for its cultural and historical value.  Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha expresses gratitude for Thailand’s inclusion on the list and anticipates that the listing will soon draw visitors to Ayutthaya and boost tourism in the area.

Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana, the government spokesperson, proudly announced that Ayutthaya had been named one of the greatest destinations to visit in the world during the post-Covid-19 period. He added that there are only 8 locations in Asia were included in the list.

According to Forbes, visiting Ayutthaya from Bangkok is simple – it takes about 90 minutes – making it ideal for a day trip while touring the kingdom. Forbes recommends spending the night in the province, enjoying and appreciating Ayutthaya’s tranquil and stunning temples and surroundings.

Forbes added that aside from Ayutthaya’s natural beauty, tourists will learn about the city’s cultural and historical importance.

One thing is certain: Ayutthaya is not taught in Western history classes, even though it was the world’s biggest metropolis in 1700. On the other hand, today’s tourists are mostly interested in past history. Ayutthaya Historical Park’s ruins stretch all the way back to 1350. The park is huge and from a different era and culture than the world-famous Angkor Wat, so don’t miss it before you visit.

Prime Minister Prayut expressed gratitude for Ayutthaya’s global recognition. He said Ayutthaya is a unique and renowned historical site in Thailand. Ayutthaya is the ideal post-pandemic vacation location combined with Thailand’s successful Covid-19 prevention efforts.

Other Asian countries featured on the Forbes list are Harbin City in China, Bhutan, Lombok Island in Indonesia, Assam State in India, Taipei City in Taiwan, Uzbekistan, and Doha, Qatar.
