Cycle the backroads of Thailand on a full-day bike tour to the ruins of Ayutthaya, and see some of the historic monuments of the former capital of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, and travel alongside typical “klongs.”
What to Expect
Escape Bangkok for the day on a 45-mile (75-kilometer) road bike tour to the ruins of Ayutthaya, founded by King Ramathibodi I in 1350 and capital of the country until its destruction by the Burmese army in 1767.
You will cycle along the back roads to experience the transformation of local communities between the present and former capitals of the Thai Kingdom, avoiding the busy traffic along the way.
Take in the beauty of the scenery as you bike along the canals (“klongs”) outside Bangkok. Pass endless paddy fields and small villages to experience the rural lives of locals riding on motorcycles, or buying street food from cart-vendors.
Say hello to the village children as they wave back in excitement. Before long, you will arrive at the extraordinary carved temple of Wat Chaiwattanaram, a UNESCO World Heritage landmark in the Ayutthaya Historical Park. The focus of the tour however is on the bike ride. If you want to explore the temples in more detail, it’s better to take a temples tour.
Lunch will be served on the banks of the river, before the return transfer by air-conditioned van.
