The old capital of Ayutthaya, 1 day.
During this one day trip to the old capital of Siam, I will take you to the most beautiful sites in town. In the most fun way with lots of different modes of transport.
We depart Bangkok to Bang Pa In summer palace. This area houses Chinese temples, European style temples and so much to discover.
From here we make a boat ride on the famous Chao Praya river to get a glimpse of the local communities on the banks of this majestic river.
Once we arrive on the island of the former capital, Ayutthaya, we visit a local market. After a fabulous lunch we continue with a fun ride in the most classical Tuk Tuk (3 wheeler) in the world. The tuk tuk will take us to Wat Mahatat (Wat means temple) to explore ruins and century old Buddha statues.
The best of this city we will visit last, Wat Chai Watanaram. This stunning Khmer style temple is so grand, you will experience far by gone ages and the old times of Siam will live inside your fantasy.

I enjoyed my trip with Angmo to Ayutthaya extremely. I did spend an easy going and relaxed day with lots of history and historic buildings and sites, perfect transportation with a very good and kind driver, an outstanding local lunch, a memorable boat trip on the river with the best captain ever and all this in the company of a knowledgeable, dedicated, friendly woman called Angmo. What a wonderful day! Thank you so much Angmo!
