Ayutthaya Tours

Step back in time and enjoy a tour of the historical city of Ayutthaya visiting temples, ancient ruins, Buddha images, and the historical park that surrounds it. You will get plenty of time to explore this fascinating city that was once the capital of Siam, including the famous Buddha head nestled in tree roots and the large reclining Buddha that lies in an open meadow. After a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, continue visiting stunning historical sites and temples. On your way back to Bangkok visit Bang Pa-In, a beautifully maintained palace that was the summer residence of King Rama IV, with some unusual European style buildings inspired by his travels and a picturesque Thai pavilion in the middle of the lake.
