Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok
From US$61,50
Low Price Guarantee
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.

In a land of many temples these were some of the best. Fascinating with many Buddhas shrouded in golden cloths.

History and beauty

The tour was well organized since pick up until drop off at the hotel. The temples visited were worthy. Unfortunately almost all buildings in Wat Phra Si Sanphet were pretty much under repairs, so we couldn't go inside. Cruise returning to Bangkok was excellent, including...More

Very touristy with minimal history

My wife an I had high hopes for this trip to the ruins of the historical capital of Thailand, but it ended up being closer to a quick advertisment for local merchants than a historical background of important cultural and historical landmarks. Positives: Good food...More
