What you’ll do

The train ride is just the start of a fantastic day with one of our local Bangkok hosts. When you arrive in Ayutthaya, you’ll get lost in the ruins of this ancient city and even though a day isn’t nearly enough to explore an entire city, we’re here to help you make the most of it.

You could see the well-preserved ruins, like Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, known to be the holiest temple or Wat Mahathat - famed for the remarkable head of a Buddha in a gnarled tree trunk - imagine that.

Whether you prefer to take a stroll around the city or navigate it by Tuk-tuk, taking in the mesmerizing sights that visitors often miss, it is all up to you. Did we mention that the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site?

You’ll soon see why, with your host showing you around some of the well-known attractions that still breathe life into the ancient atmosphere. All that history will, of course, leave you hungry, so we recommend trying some local specialties like catfish curry or roti pag pia - a local style of pancake rolled around candy floss. Delicious.

Our Picks

  • Visit the ancient ruins which are scattered along the riverbanks and through the town and explore ruined temples and palaces

  • Enjoy a traditional lunch at a local eatery with your host who will tell you how else to enjoy Ayutthaya like a local
