It's possible to get to Ayutthaya from Kanchanaburi by bus without having to go into Bangkok and back out again. Simply take a bus from Kanchanaburi to a town called Suphanburi, which takes about 2hrs and cost me 50B. Then from here take another bus to Ayutthaya which takes about an hour and cost me 60B. The bus brought me to the main bus stand along Th Naresuan, to the east of the island near where all the cheap backpacker hotels and guesthouses are, which was very useful.

Tuk tuk in Ayutthaya is slightly different looking than the others ones around Thailand but it is nevertheless a tuk tuk. The rides here are much cheaper compared to the ones in the city. Remember to bargain the price before you get on it.

More pictures of chao Praya River Cruise (why does VT only allow 5 picture for tips, we should ask for more allotments for pictures!) Most chao phraya river tours are located in bangkok or in ayutthaya).The trip along Chao Phraya River is a very exciting and enjoyable thing to do for visitors either in the day time with a lunch buffett or in the evening with dinner served on the river cruise. Prices of Chao Phraya day Tours to Ayuthaya is 1,600 Baht and Night River dinner cruise at 1,400 baht.
Tourists can book such a tour through travel agents or rent a boat at Tha Chang (Tel: 225-6179, 623-6169), a pier near the Grand Palace, or Tha Si Phraya (Tel: 235-3108) near the River City Shopping Complex

The cities along the river are Nakhon Sawan, Uthai Thani, Chainat, Singburi, Ang Thong, Ayutthaya, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Bangkok and Samut Prakan.

It's easy go to Ayuthaya from BKK. Just go to Northern Terminal in BKK: here start a lot of buses going to north (Chiang Mai, Sukhotai, Phitsanaluke) that stop in Ayuthaya. The lenght of trip is about one hour and half.

Drive north towards Ang Thong or Singburu or Nakhon Sawan. You may go there from BKK downtown by 1 or 31 (Don Muang), then 1 then 32. It's a easy drive and you spend about one hour if there is no trafic jam. Some days (weekends) and in certain hours (early in the morning and 4 - 5 p.m.) the traffic is very intense and the drive dangerous and very slow. I recommend a car that let you see all the temples outside the town and free movement from hotel to inner town.

You may go from BKK to Ayuthaya by boat starting from the pier just south of Royal Orchid Sheraton or under Taksin Bridge that lies at the end of skytrain line. You may also book a tour starting from BKK : usually they offer a bus trip up to Ayuthaya and a river cruise down, or viceversa. The first option is good if you want go around freely, but needs more time.

Upon arriving in Joggarat Bus Station, I walked a few meters westward, and found a restaurant that rents out bicycles and motorbikes.
Motorbikes can be rented for 250 baht, and you have to pay for your own fuel. I just rented a bike for 50baht.

I decided to go to Ayutthaya on a whim.
I took the BTS from Victory Monument going to Mo Chit. When I got off the station, I took a taxi to Mo Chit Bus Terminal.
From the terminal, I inquired about the bus ride from the ticket counter. Then I was told to just proceed to platform 113. I boarded the 12:45nn aircon bus and paid 50baht. The whole ride took about an hour and 45minutes because of the many stopovers.
I left Ayutthaya at around 6:15pm, paid the same fare, and arrived in Bangkok at almost 8:30pm because of the heavy traffic.
