Day Trip to Ayutthaya

If you are trying to get away from the booming and busy city of Bangkok, Ayutthaya is just what you need. Learning about the history of the “Land of Smiles” will take you deep into the temples found spread through Ayutthaya. The ancient capital of Siam is located about 70 km or about an hour outside of Bangkok. As it may not be as much of a  popular destination today, Ayutthaya was once the thriving capital of Thailand, home to over millions of people. The city flourished in the eyes of its competitors, who jealously drooled over the success of the city.

Weekend in Rome

A weekend is never enough time to experience a city, but sometimes life gets in the way of letting us jet off to a new country. Rome is a city that you could easily spend months in, wandering through the ancient ruins, stopping at each gelato shop to sample every flavor; but for those of us that can’t live the jet-setter lifestyle, Rome is a city that can be discovered in a weekend; crunch time.
