Ayutthaya harbours a wealth of history through its fascinating temple ruins and palaces – many believed to have been gilded with gold. The Bang Pa-In Summer Palace as well as temples located inside the city moat are particularly impressive. Today, despite their ruined state, Ayutthaya temples maintain a revered feel. Strolling the grounds of these ruins is a humbling experience, particularly as you try to imagine what the original sights might have been in the 14th century.
This full-day tour begins with a coach journey from Bangkok, before boarding a charming river cruiser to see many spectacular sights floating by. You will enjoy a full buffet lunch on board before you disembark to see them from the land. The tour lasts around 9 hours in total.
Highlights of the Tour:
- Transport to and from your hotel in Bangkok
- River cruise around Ayutthaya
