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.

This trip was by far the best of the 3 we organised for our stay in Bangkok. Excellent guide and the sights were spectacular. We particularly enjoyed the river and lunch part of the trip.

The tour was well organized and our tour guide Simon was perfect. He was a very knowledgeable and very good English speaker.
I recommend this tour who would like to see the beauty of Ayutthaya temples, Bang-Pa In Palace and the lifesytle of along by the Chao Phraya River. River Cruise was very well and comfortable. The buffet lunch was not the best but it was OK. I would love to see Wat Yai Chai Mongkon as well but it was not included in the tour. But overall, the tour was very nice!
