Ayutthaya the Unesco World Heritage site


One of the most highlight of any Thailand visit, Ayutthaya on a cultural day trip. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Ayutthaya is about 73 kilometers north of Bangkok. Ayutthaya was a thriving Siamese kingdom from 1350 until 1767, when it was captured by the Burmese. Today, Ayutthaya is Thailand's former ancient capital known for its spectacular ruins and temples. Many of its temples are still intact, such as Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, Wat Mongkhon Bophit, Wat Panangcherng and Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, known for its large statue of the Reclining Buddha.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jean is a terrific guide. We had toured with her when we first arrived in Bangkok, and enjoyed our time so much that we arranged this subsequent tour for later in our trip, upon our return to Bangkok. As a native of Ayutthaya, she seems to know everything. We had a great ride to Ayutthaya, with her brother as our driver for the day. Palaces, temples - all fascinating. She arranged a great lunch at a favorite local restaurant. Jean treated us with great kindness, and shared her pride for Ayutthaya.
