Description

Stroll through the magnificent ruins of Ayutthaya and witness the remnants of historic temples and palaces that line the shores of the Chao Phraya River. Climb aboard a comfortable vessel to cruise down the river back to Bangkok, and enjoy the sights while you feast on a traditional Thai buffet.

Leave Bangkok and make your way to the ancient city of Ayutthaya aboard a comfortable coach. Once you arrive, follow your guide to the Ayutthaya Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the weather-worn ruins of pointed prang (reliquary towers) and gigantic monasteries offer an idea of the city's past glory. Visit the Wat Maha Tat, an expansive Buddhist temple compound that includes the relics of old religious buildings, numerous headless Buddha statues, and the remains of royal villas. Be sure to check out the enormous Buddha head that is surrounded by the gnarled roots of living tree.

Next, swing by the 17th-century Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, whose 19th-century restoration helped maintain its colorful roof tiles and intricate stupa. Witness glittering gold-and-green temples, ornate buildings with columned porticos, and romantic marble statues of graceful female figures.

Proceed to the river's edge to set off on a cruise down the Chao Phraya River that takes you back to Bangkok while you pile your plate high with traditional Thai cuisine. Savor the rich and spicy flavors of local delicacies as you float downstream, taking in the outstanding views of the lush green countryside before the trees start to slowly thin out and the buildings of the capital begin to take their place.

It was well managed trip. We were picked up from the hotel at right time. The staff was supportive at all times. The guide was good and explained the details of different historical sites very well. While returning on the boat she was constantly telling about the stories of the different buildings and insurances. It was a very productive and enjoyable day.

Great tour of ayuttaya ending with a boat ride back to Bangkok. I didn’t give 5 stars as the 40 min spent on the main temple area wasn’t enough - given that we were back at Bangkok by 4pm, we could easily have spent another 45 min to an hour. So it felt a little stingy.

The tour was well organised and the Guide and driver were very good and cheerful. The Tour guide gave an excellent overview of the areas we travelled to and the sites we visited.
