Ayutthaya Day Trip from Bangkok Including River Cruise and Lunch

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your day trip from Bangkok to Ayutthaya provides an opportunity to get out of the city and learn a bit about Thai history.

    Start the day with hotel pickup in Bangkok and make your way to the ancient city. Stroll around the World Heritage–listed ruins of this once-magnificent city, following your guide past weather-worn sites such as monasteries and pointed prang, a type of temple tower.

    You’ll get an idea of the city’s past glory as you visit Wat Maha Tat, a large Buddhist temple complex home to headless Buddha statues and the remnants of royal villas and religious structures. Of particular interest is the large Buddha head entangled in the roots of a tree. Then check out Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, once used by Thai kings. Admire the colorful roof tiles, gold and green temples, ornate porticos, marble statues, and elaborate stupas.

    As you reach the edge of the Chao Phraya River, board your cruise along the waterway, heading back toward Bangkok. Enjoy a meal of Thai specialties on the boat while you take in the passing scenery of the lush countryside, which gradually transitions into the city.
