DirectRooms.com Visit to Ayutthaya During the Wet Season during 1 to 31 August 2011

Ayutthaya is an historical town with a wide range of temples and museums to visit. Ayutthaya Historical Park, for example, has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is home to ancient temples and palace ruins.

Other historical sites include the massive Wat Mongkhon Bophit Temple, and the ruins of Wat Phra Si Sanphet. Some of the popular ways to explore the region include by elephant or river cruise.

The rainy season lasts from June through to October, with the heaviest period usually occurring in August. Although the name may suggest otherwise, the wet season in Ayutthaya does not mean continuous rain on a daily basis. In general, heavy showers last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, and there are even weeks in which there are no rain at all.

Due to the fact that there are fewer tourists at this time of the year it is much easier to find a prime place on the beach when the sun is shining, or to visit the many cultural attractions in the area. The weather is also slightly cooler, with temperatures ranging from 71 to 92 degrees Fahrenheit (22 to 33 degrees Celsius), which makes it easier to explore the region. This is also a perfect time to visit the undercover Hua Rau Market.

During this time visitors will be able to get a good deal on Ayutthaya hotels. There is a wide range of accommodation available, from honeymoon suites to family apartments. Many can be found in the historical region, while less expensive rooms are located in the town centre.
