What You Can Expect

Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok

Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok

After hotel pickup, your vehicle makes the journey north from Bangkok to Ayutthaya Historical Park, located 53 miles (85 km) away. The old capital of Thailand (aka the Kingdom of Siam) from 1350 until 1767, Ayutthaya was largely destroyed by the Burmese and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site full of intact temples, monasteries, palace ruins and beheaded Buddhist statues.

On arrival, set out on foot with your knowledgeable guide who leads you to notable Ayutthaya temples such as Wat Phra Si Sanphet — part of the Ancient Royal Palace ruins  as well as Wat Mongkhon Bophit, Wat Yai Chai Mongkol and Wat Phanan Choeng, known for its gilded seated Buddha statue.

Marvel at the Buddha's head resting in the tree roots overtaking Wat Mahathat and visit the well-preserved summer palace of King Rama IV with its mixture of Thai, Chinese and Gothic architecture. 

After stopping for a provided lunch, complete your full-day excursion with a riverboat cruise on the Chao Phraya River back to Bangkok. You’re treated to views of temples lining the riverbank, such as Wat Arun, before your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Besides the Ayutthaya sites, I was most impressed by the guide's control of time to each site, the logistics for pickup at the hotel although our hotel was not in the list of hotels, and at the boat dock. We enjoyed the land tour and the nice buffet lunch on the boat with a leisurely river cruise back to Bangkok.

This was an all day tour with pick up from our hotel at 7am. We then boarded a large tour bus from the shuttle van at a central location and embarked on our journey at 7:30am. The sights were amazing especially the ancient temple ruins and the Buddha head tree. The river cruise was relaxing.

I did not expect the cruise to be that great! We were pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the cruise. The temples were also great. It was worth every cent and more!
