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.

Amazing tour going to Ayutthaya ruins, great history, scenery and culture. Our tour guide named Donna did a great job showing us sites, taking our pictures, she is a wealth of knowledge and loves what she does. The boat ride back to Bangkok includes an all you can eat buffet lunch featuring different Thai dishes. Loved the boat ride back, nice slow ride to relax in the sun or in the AC main decks. Lots of space.

It's a very good and informative tour. Tour guide was knowledgeable and sufficient time was given for each site visited. Quality of lunch on board the cruise ship back to Bangkok could be improve though. Just a point to note - please be on time and considerate to other passengers. We had to wait for more than 30 mins for a couple and their kid who decided to go for elephant riding at the time we were supposed to depart for another site.

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.
