What to Expect
Discover the rich history, fascinating architecture and iconic buildings of Ayutthaya, an ancient royal capital. Visit the former royal residence at Bang Pa-In Palace, drop by the Wat Mahathat and Wat Na Phra Men temples, and cruise the waters of Chao Phraya River while enjoying a delicious lunch.

Begin this full-day tour with a journey north of Bangkok to Ayutthaya. The capital and namesake of a 14th-century Siamese kingdom, the city now hosts a UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with archaeological wonders – ruins, temples and statues. Start exploring at the majestic Bang Pa-In Palace and appreciate the former summer residence of Thai royalty. Continue to Wat Mahathat to appreciate the Buddhist temple's architecture and visit a special tree with the face of Buddha at its trunk. Tour the mystic Wat Na Phra Men and marvel at the Buddha statues lined up along the building. Listen to the knowledgeable guide and learn about the tale of a Buddha image that never burned down, even in the Burmese invasion that destroyed the city.

Drive to Wat Lokaya Sutharam to admire the largest reclining Buddha image in Ayutthaya. Next, hop aboard a riverboat and enjoy a buffet lunch while cruising along the iconic Chao Phraya River. Observe the lifestyle of locals and see attractions like the Grand Palace and Wat Arun before making your way back to the hotel.
