Full description

Enjoy a small-group tour of the magnificent temple ruins of Ayutthaya, the capital during the golden age of Siam. All entrance fees, an expert guide, and lunch at a local restaurant are included. Travel from Bangkok in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle or choose to join the tour at your first stop in Ayutthaya, Wat Lokayasutha. This temple is known for its giant reclining Buddha image, one of the few structures remaining intact here. Your next stop is Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, being part of the royal palace complex this is where royalty performed rituals. It is considered the most important temple of Ayutthaya. Then, visit Wat Mahathat Ayutthaya. One of the oldest and most significant temples in the history of Ayutthaya, it once housed the Buddha's holy relic. Admire the famous Buddha head entwined within the roots of a Bodhi tree. After, tuck into a hearty lunch at a local Thai restaurant, where your guide will be available to advise on local culinary specialties.

Great way to see Ayutthaya. The schedule was jam-packed, but there was a good balance between introductions to the different temples and free time to explore the areas on your own. Boy was a great guide. If you are not a light eater, you might want to choose a rice dish for lunch or bring a snack on the bus. :)

We choose this experience for the beauty of the temples and it didn't disapoint us. But on top of the cake, was our guide, Uncle Sam, funny, good teacher and very sweet. The lunch that was included in the pack is also something worth mentioning. A little bit of culture served in a dish, a local recipe served in a local restaurant.

One and the same word to sum up our excursion experience in Ayutthaya this Thursday, January 19: EXTRAORDINARY My partner and I had in Mister J the English guide and Mister Sam the French guide the two best guides we could have dreamed of. Kindness incarnate and a transmission of their perfect passion. Thank you both very much for your valuable advice on our stay in Thailand and your good humor and your kindness and super positive energy. With Mister J for English and Mister Sam for French, you can book this excursion with your eyes closed. Kendy and Julie
