Full description

Visit sites that date back to 1350 at the Ayutthaya Historical Park. Learn about Buddhist history, architecture, and religion as you explore countless temples with your experienced tour guide. In the 18th century, much of Ayutthaya was destroyed by Burmese invaders; witness the structures in their various states of disrepair. Tree roots growing around scattered Buddha heads only adds to the historical charm of this unique destination. After departing from Bangkok bright and early, see Bang Pa-In Royal Palace en route to Ayutthaya. Used as a summer residence for ancient Thai kings, the golden pagodas and serene pools make for a great introduction to the region’s glorious past. After arriving in Ayutthaya, take several hours to explore fascinating ancient religious sites including Wat Mahathat, where a decapitated Buddha head sits nestled between ancient tree roots. Continue to Wat Mongkol Borpit, known for its enormous seated Buddha statue. Discover Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, the most holy and important complex of the ancient Thai capital. Finally, explore Wat Chaiwatthanaram, known for its towering stone chedis. This site is one of the main reasons Ayutthaya was awarded UNESCO status in 1991.

The tour was great, it was fascinating to learn about Ayutthaya temples and its history. Kat was knowledgeable and explained to us the history perfectly. The lunch recommended by her was also very good, very authentic (outside expense, not included in the tour). The bus was comfortable and the driver was stable in his driving. All in all, this tour is a good experience to those who wants to learn more about Thailand.

Well organized and informative. The tour guide Koi and driver were very kind and looked after the guests and answered questions. Perhaps the only opportunity for improvement is the time to get started gathering all the guests. Also less time at the winter palace would have been better. There is not too much to see there and it was HOT

The best tour so far in Thailand! Suwannakat (Su) made the tour a wonderful, meaningful, and fun experience! We loved that she helped us understand not only the historical aspects of what we saw, but also the cultural and local perspectives, and always with her enthusiastic approach to it! The pace of the tour was perfect and Su made it really easy to see the most important parts of each place we visited. We would high recommend it!
