Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok
From US$59.57
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Navigating Bangkok’s chaotic roads independently can be a daunting task. Swap transportation hassles for a comfortable coach (with hotel pickup and drop-off) and a relaxing river cruise on this Ayutthaya tour. Explore the UNESCO-listed site on foot; hear guide commentary about its history; and visit highlights such as Wat Phra Si Sanphet and the summer palace of King Rama IV, famed for its mixture of Thai, Chinese, and Gothic architecture.
What to Expect
Following hotel pickup in Bangkok, you’ll travel north to the UNESCO-listed Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand (aka the Kingdom of Siam). On arrival, you’ll disembark the coach and embark on a walking tour of Ayutthaya temples, monasteries, and palaces.
Admire temples such as Wat Mongkhon Bophit, Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, and Wat Phanan Choeng, famed for its gilded seated Buddha statue. Marvel at the well-preserved summer palace of King Rama IV with its mixture of Thai, Chinese, and Gothic architecture.
After lunch, you’ll return to Bangkok via the Chao Phraya River (Mae Nam Chao Phraya) on a scenic cruise. The tour ends with hotel drop-off.

As a part of the tour we have visited Bang Pa In and Ayuatthaya. The ancient capital of Siam is listed on UNESCO so it is worth to see it together with reclining Buddha and Summer Palace. Our tour guide unfortunately spoke only basic english...More

Amazing tour in Ayutthaya

This UNESCO heritage site is not to be missed. If you are staying in Bangkok, this is a bit out of the city, but so worth the time to see it. Old ancient temples truly give you a great feel for Thailand and its history,...More

If you staying in the city you will be quicker getting to the meeting point next to the Sheraton. It took us 45 minutes to get there, while on foot it was 15. K.
