Heritage of Ancient Ayutthaya in Style
- Full Day
After one and a half hour, arrive in Ayutthaya and start exploring. Learn about the rich history of the site, from its founding as the capital in the 14th century to its demise at the hands of Burmese invaders in the 1700s. Venture through the temple-studded landscape, stopping to visit the venerated Wat Yai Chai Mongkol and the largest monument, Wat Phra Si Sanphet. See Wat Mahathat and snap a photo of the iconic Buddha image surrounded by a tree.

Feel free to explore other parts of Ayutthaya aside from these monuments. Despite being located near busy Bangkok, Ayutthaya maintains a sleepy, laid back atmosphere. Get a taste of the city’s rhythm by walking through the market and the Muslim Quarter where there are plenty of local delicacies on offer.

At midday, rest and eat a hearty Thai lunch at a hip, fine dining restaurant, The Wine Ayutthaya. The restaurant is a unique stand-alone building featuring wooden-style architecture that matches well with the natural surroundings. It is located by the Chao Phraya River which is a perfect backdrop while drinking a glass of cocktail or wine.

After a great meal, take a leisurely one hour Longtail Boat ride down the Chao Phraya River. Enjoy views of riverside villages while cruising down the ‘River of Kings’. Arrive at a small river island where the Wat Niwet Thammaprawat resides. Be amazed at this distinctive Buddhist temple which features remarkable gothic-style architecture and stained glass windows. Then take the cable car across the river for aerial views of the waterway and continue by golf car to Bang Pa-In Summer Palace. Bang Pa-In was built in the 1600s as the summer residence for the Royal Family. The property contains an impressive collection of gardens and majestic mansions. Although rarely used these days, the palace retains its royal elegance and offers a great opportunity to learn about the kingdom’s history and culture.
