Description

Being ancient Siam's capital many years ago, Ayutthaya has a rich history. And much of the fascinating architecture and iconic buildings in the ancient royal capital still exists today (mostly as incredibly interesting ruins). On this tour, you will visit the former royal residence at Bang Pa-In Palace, marvel at the Wat Mahathat and Wat Na Phra Men temples, and cruise down the mighty Chao Phraya River enjoying a delicious lunch.

Begin your full-day tour with a journey north of Bangkok to Ayutthaya. The capital and namesake of a 14th-century Siamese kingdom, the preserved ruins of the city are a UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with archaeological wonders—palaces, temples, and statues.

Start exploring at the majestic waterfront complex of the Bang Pa-In Palace, the former summer residence of Thai royalty. After roaming its ponds, gardens, and pavilions, continue to the temple of Wat Mahathat, where you can see a special tree with the face of Buddha encased in its trunk.

From there, tour mystic Wat Na Phra Men which houses a golden seated Buddha statue. Listen to your knowledgeable guide share the story of the Burmese invasion that destroyed the city, and hear how this remarkable temple played a pivotal role in the history of the area during the war with the Burmese. Your exploration of spiritual sites continues at Wat Lokaya Sutharam, where you can see the largest reclining Buddha image in Ayutthaya.

Next, hop aboard a riverboat and enjoy a buffet lunch while cruising along the gentle currents of the Chao Phraya River. Observe locals going about their daily life along the waterfront, and see attractions
