This post is about Roti Sai Mai which is a sweetmeat speciality from Ayutthaya that has its origins in India. Roti Sai Mai is cotton candy that comes in various colours and is wrapped in a piece or two lightly salted thin paper-like crepes. Since the cotton candy looks like hair, it is called ‘angel hair’

A day in Ayutthaya is about my trip to the old capital of Thailand. Ayutthaya is a world heritage area and I visited the Reclining Buddha that wears a yellow robe. This Buddha is situated in Wat Chai Mongkon. The next station was the palace of King U-Thong and his amazing display of roosters. A further memorable sight was visiting Wat Phanan Choeng and the giant golden Buddha. Finally, there is Wat Mahathat with its most famous image of Ayutthaya, the Buddha head wrapped within a banyan tree.
