History & Culture
Meet up at hotel lobby (in Bangkok area)
Visit Wat Niwet Thammaprawat.
Located on a small island, the Buddhist temple was uniquely built in Gothic Revival style.
Then we'll go to Bang Pa-In Palace.
The summer palace was first constructed by King Prasat Thong in 1632 and expanded by later kings. You'll find stunning buildings in many architectural styles from Thai and Chinese to European.
Please be informed that you can stroll in the palace complex, but entering the buildings isn't allowed.
Move on to Wat Phanan Choeng.
The temple was built in 1324 even before Ayutthaya was founded! Admire the gigantic gilded Buddha image.
Grab local lunch.
Relax at Ayothaya Market and walk around shopping for souvenirs.
Pay a visit to Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon.
The temple was first built by King U-Thong (Ayutthaya's first king) in 1357. Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon is very photogenic with enormous pagodas and rows of Buddha images.
Visit Wat Phra Si Sanphet.
The temple was once the royal palace built by King U-Thong. Later, the palace was exclusively used as the royal temple for religious and royal ceremonies. Don't miss its three iconic pagodas.
Go to Wat Mahathat.
See the world-famous Buddha head in tree roots and Khmer-style architecture.
Head back to Bangkok. Get some rest on the ride back.

Jaraya was very kind and timely. Summer Palace and Ayuttaja was beautiful

Trip was not interesting
Jareya was accommodating with transportation and prompt with pre-trip communication. She is a lovely lady, and even bought us bottled water during the tour. She covered all the places in the itinerary.
However, her delivery of information was bland. She had to be probed for further information.
Not sure who decided on the itinerary. Ayutthaya Floating Market should be removed from the program. It was not an authentic experience, and the food served tasted terrible. We couldn't finish our food, and requested for another spot for lunch (which was barely better).
