Full description

Enjoy a small-group tour of the magnificent temple ruins of Ayutthaya, the capital during the golden age of Siam. All entrance fees, an expert guide, and lunch at a local restaurant are included. Travel from Bangkok in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle or choose to join the tour at your first stop in Ayutthaya, Wat Lokayasutha. This temple is known for its giant reclining Buddha image, one of the few structures remaining intact here. Your next stop is Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, being part of the royal palace complex this is where royalty performed rituals. It is considered the most important temple of Ayutthaya. Then, visit Wat Mahathat Ayutthaya. One of the oldest and most significant temples in the history of Ayutthaya, it once housed the Buddha's holy relic. Admire the famous Buddha head entwined within the roots of a Bodhi tree. After, tuck into a hearty lunch at a local Thai restaurant, where your guide will be available to advise on local culinary specialties. Last but not least, finish your trip at the grand, riverside Wat Chaiwattanaram.

Well worth the early start. We were greeted by our guide Sam who proved throughout the day to be totally amazing. He gave sufficient detail to be interesting without being too heavy with detail. He made the programme of the day clear and concise with humour and cultural sensitivity. He advised on the correct clothing for entry to the historical sites to maintain the correct level of respect. Sam was assisted by an excellent driver who was safe and steady. Thailand is returning to accepting tourists now following a difficult time during the pandemic. If you are thinking of taking a trip such as this one you will leave more informed. I really recommend Sam and wish to thank him personally for his kind attention. I hope that the business returns to full strength. Well done.

starting from the guide SAM (invented name to shorten his) very good and very kind. the only thing that wasn't there compared to what was supposed to be present and included in the tour was the cool towel, which would have been useful given the sweats we all had at each stage.

Absolutely wonderful experience on tour with BigCountry Vacation. The trip to Ayutthaya was fun, informative and awe-inspiring thanks to Sam (one of the best tour guides ever!) and his team. I am looking forward to exploring more of Thailand on my next BigCountry Vacation tour. Thank you for making my first visit to Thailand memorable!
