Ayutthaya

Excursion

Ancient Ayutthaya by River Cruise - Full Day

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Thailand holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Ayutthaya lies about an hour’s journey by coach to the north of Bangkok and was the proud and powerful ancient capital of Siam until its destruction, 230 or so years ago. Much of the fabulous ornate city was lost at that time but what remains will still give you an excellent idea of life during the 4 centuries that the Kings of Ayutthaya ruled. You will also visit the nearby summer palace of the present modern day Chakri dynasty.

After the sightseeing, you will travel by coach for approximately 1 hour to join a cruise boat at Wat Chong- Lom Pier for a leisurely boat ride (approximately 2 hours) back down the Chao Phraya River to River City Pier taking in all of the splendid scenery and typical Thai water-borne life on the way.
