Why this trip?
You won't miss any highlights of Ayudthaya. The trip is worth for one day and you no longer need to come back to Ayudthaya for second time unless you fall in love with the ruins here which I do (so I always bring people back :D)
How local is it?
We are taking the time machine back to the city where once was world's wealthiest and most cosmopolitan, Ayudthaya. I'll show you places. You'll get to appreciate the world heritage with your eyes, and we'll get to eat famous local foods together.
What makes it unique?
Visit the royal summer residence, lunch at floating market, and 4 temples; Wat Mahathat (Buddha's head in the tree), Wat Yai Chaimongkon (most gigantic stupa), Wat Pra Srisanphet (3 majestic stupas), and Wat Niwet Thammaprawat (European style temple)
