Ayutthaya is one of the most famous historical and cultural cities in Thailand.  At the height of its prosperity in the 16th century, it was considered one of the biggest and wealthiest cities in the region. Founded in 1350, Ayutthaya was the first capital of the Thai kingdom after Sukhothai. In 1767, the city was attacked and burnt down by the invading Burmese army forcing the people to abandon the city, effectively bringing the long era of Ayutthaya to a close.

Thailand lies in the Indo-Chinese Peninsula covering a land area of 513,115 sq.km. It extends some 1,500 km. from north to south striding over parts of the tropical and sub-tropical zones. With its plentiful rainfall and fertile soil, Thailand, like all its neighbours, used to have a very high forest cover. Although, as is well known, much of this is gone, Thailand in the past decades has made ceaseless efforts in forest conservation and has succeeded in expanding enormously its network of national parks and wildlife sanctuaries.
