Full description

Discover some of the notable historical sites of Ayutthaya on a day trip from Bangkok. Visit ancient temples and palaces as well as the Ayothaya Floating Market with an expert guide.

After meeting in Bangkok in the morning, start the 2-hour drive to Ayutthaya. The ancient city of Ayutthaya was founded around 1350 and became the second capital of Siam after Sukhothai.

On this full-day trip, you will explore the ruins of the old city, in the UNESCO-listed Ayutthaya Historical Park. The park is an archaeological site that contains palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries, and statues.

Visit the Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, originally built in 1632 by King Prasat Thong. At this spot, you can find a number of impressive buildings built in different architectural styles from Thai, Chinese and European design.

Continue your tour with a visit to the Ayothaya Floating Market and enjoy some free time for lunch at your own expense.

After lunch, you will visit 2 more historical sites, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet and Wat Mahathat, to discover the ruins of the great temple sites. You will return to Bangkok in the early evening, where you will be dropped off at a location close to the original meeting point.

Max was a very good guide who gave us a lot of information about the country and culture. The tour is balanced in itself, the park around the royal palace is relaxing and the wats visited are very impressive. The floating market is a bit like Disneyland and could be omitted, but a nice restaurant would be a better stopover.

Really well done and very informative. The bus was super clean and cool, providing good receptive from the heat. The floating market was a bit quirky but lovable given its destination as weekend getaway for the locals. Really appreciated that. And of course really enjoyed the jaunt through the summer palace and Ayutthaya and the guide's indepth knowledge.

This was a great experience, Max, our guide, along with Boy, our driver, were both great. The guide was super friendly and knowledgeable, telling us all about the places we were visiting, but not only that, in the van, on our way to the destination, he was telling us a bunch of interesting facts about Thailand, this made the ride super entertaining. We had plenty of free time at each interest point after our guide explained the history behind it. The floating market was not what we expected (a river full of boats selling different things) but rather a bunch of small stalls on the edge of a small lake, regardless, it was an enjoyable stop along our way. You could buy a bunch of souvenirs or food, for the sweet stuf I highly recommend the coconut ice cream, the coconut pancakes and steamed banan cake.
