Thailand's Ayutthaya Temples and River Cruise from Bangkok
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.

Ok tour with subpar guide

The tour to the temples was ok, all things considered. The problem that I had was that I didn’t learn anything of the history and sights because the tour guide’s English was so difficult to understand (and I’m American). She might as well have been...More

Gorgeous locations and a beautiful finale cruise.

The package was complete and jam packed for a day trip - make sure you've got your energy levels up and have breakfast beforehand! The Palace Gardens were the highlight for me - gorgeous architecture that hints at the diverse cultural influences in Thailand. The...More

Schedule should be modified

Because it is easier, because we are a bit tired (and lazy), we choose to join this group for the visit of Ayutthaya instead of just travelling by ourselves to Ayutthaya. I must say that the schedule of the day should really be modified :...More

Correct : while the cruise is relaxing, it is not to compare with the visit of a UNESCO world heritage site !
