The fair takes place within the UNESCO’s World Heritage Site at Ayutthaya Historical Park. If this is your first visit to the park, it’s well worth visiting the Chao Sam Phraya National Museum which currently features a special exhibition about the precious gold ornaments which were made in the Ayutthaya era. There are also fascinating displays that tell the story of the city.
Fairgoers can also get around the scattered historical sites taking the free tram that will be available throughout the 10-day event. Ayutthaya boasts many Buddhist temples worth seeing, but they can be spread out. The tram or bike is the best way to see as many of them as possible.
