Package tour to Ayuthaya

by yumiyun

Hi,

We (3 adults and 1 small child) are planning to visit Ayuthaya from BKK. Can anyone suggest us a good package tour to Ayuthaya. We intend to do a day trip.

Thanks,

Just take the bus or train, it is after all only about an hour - 1,5 from Bangkok. And the buses drop you of in the centre of Ayuthaya. There you can easily arrange any transport (bike, tuk-tuk, taxi, boat tour, etc) you like

There are plenty of options for a package tour, I would suggest you take one that has the return journey on the river onboard teh Pearl of Siam. They serve a very good bufet lunch on the boat and you get to see some interesting sights along the Chao Phraya River on the 4 hour trip back to the city.

Regards

John

you can hire a taxi driver and he can spend all day visiting more than 12 temples in Ayuthaya. Going with a tour you will only see 4 or 5.
If you want you can contact the guide we used and she has many taxi drivers that she knows that can carry you there. We payed only 200bht for a full day including gas and we could visit more than 12 temples.
look at my Bangkok page and search for Nok, the guide we used in BKK

Travel Tips for Ayuthaya

Quick summary of Ayutthaya

by xuessium

Ayutthaya was the capital of ancient Thailand (Siam) for 417 years, seen through the reigns of 33 kings and withstanding 23 invasions before its final sacking by the Myanmarese (formerly Burmese) in 1767 A.D..

After the sacking of the city, the capital was moved to Bangkok, ending Ayutthaya's role in Thailand politics.

It has been registered as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1981.

Be Respectful

by neurochic

At Ayutthaya you will come across many Buddhist statues. In Thai culture you should not enter a temple or Buddha shrine as a female with your arms being bare or your legs. So basically no tank tops and shorts or short miniskirts when visiting these areas. Now believe me I was hot as heck visiting the many sites in the Thai sun and when I wasn't visiting a temple I had on a tank top but just make sure you have a long sleeved shirt to cover up when viewing areas that the Thai consider holy.

Rivers

by yen_2

Believed it or not, there are too many khlongs(rivers) here in Thailand. The photo in the side was in Ayuthaya right infront of the Wat Chaiwatthanaram, this one is a continuation of the river in Chao Phraya River which means it's Chao Phraya River, where it will take you 3 to 4 hours cruise from Ayuthaya to Bangkok! A long way around...

0 - Mu Ban Protuket - 40

by xiquinho

Mu Ban Protuket is the Portuguese village located in Tambon Samphao Lom, on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River and to the south of the city. The Portuguese were the first Europeans who travelled to trade with the Ayutthaya kingdom. In 1511, Afonso de Albuquerque, the Portuguese governor to Asia, dispatched a diplomatic troupe led by Ambassador Mr. Duarte Fernandes to Ayutthaya during the reign of King Ramathibodi II. After that, some portuguese came to the kingdom for different purposes : trade, military volunteers in the Ayutthaya army, or on a religious mission. They built a church as the centre of their community and to serve religious purposes.

Presently, some traces of former construction have been found at the village site. At the ancient remains of São Pedro, a Dominican church, some antique objects were excavated together with human skeletons such as tobacco pipes, coins, and accessories for a religious ceremony.
