Description

Visit Ayuthaya, the former royal capital of Thailand, a sightseeing tour from Bangkok. Explore ancient ruins, such as the Summer Palace of King Rama IV. Learn about Ayuthaya’s history as a major port and its eventual demise and more.

Visit the former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya, situated approximately 75 kilometres north of Bangkok and which is
one of those destinations you have to see. The mix of cultures in Ayutthaya began in the mid-16 th century when
ships from Ayutthaya plied the Asian seas, trading with neighbouring countries. When the Dutch showed up in the
17 th century, Ayutthaya became a port city and trade routes were extended to China, Japan, Indonesia, Portugal,
Holland and France and even up to the Scandinavian countries later. Although the ancient villages of foreign
traders lining on the Chao Phraya riverbanks were abandoned when the city was sacked by Burmese troops in
1767, some remnants have survived and now showcase the city’s past glory. The tour will start at the Summer
Palace of the late King Rama V, commonly known as “Bang Pa-In”. You will then continue to the magnificent ruins
of early splendour that Ayutthaya is famous for all over the world. We will pass or visit all the most impressive ruins
of this World Heritage Site. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant in Ayutthaya. We will eventually return to
Bangkok by coach.

Note: Kindly be aware that proper attire is required to enter the Summer Palace compounds
