You will be picked up at 07:00. Explore Thailand’s ancient capital and cultural heartlands by train, boat, and tuk-tuk with this absorbing Ayutthaya day trip. The day begins with a morning train ride, approximately 1.20 hours, from Bangkok to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of Ayutthaya, passing through verdant countryside and lush paddy fields. Having arrived in Ayutthaya, which dates to the 14th Century, the morning is spent exploring the breathtaking temple-studded landscape by a unique Kermit tuk-tuk, visiting the highlighted temples of the city.
See majestic Wat Yai Chaimongkol, impressive Wat Phra Srisanphet and Wat Mahathat, where the Buddha face is naturally emerged out of the tree. Learn about the history of Ayutthaya, which was once the largest city in the world. Hear the stories of its glory days and how it was eventually brought down by invading forces from Myanmar.
In between temples visits, get a taste of local life with a visit to a vibrant market. Take an interesting walk through the town’s Muslim Quarter which offers the opportunity to sample an unusual local delicacy, candy floss roti.
After lunch at a local restaurant, the Ayutthaya day trip continues with a leisurely long-tail boat ride, approximately one hour, on the river around Ayutthaya island. This offers the chance to see more of the historic sites from a different perspective. The tour ends with a Kermit tuk-tuk ride to the local train station in Ayutthaya, where guests will embark on the train back to Bangkok. (L)
