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 Floating 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.

Fun, informative, beautiful
Our guide Kittichai is everything you could ask for in a guide. He showed up to our hotel on time, his car was very clean, and he even brought phone chargers for us. He was very friendly, and answered all of our general questions about Bangkok while we were driving out to the temples. Once at the temples, he showed us around, explaining the history and architecture. We managed to fit 4 temples into our trip, and the summer palace, without it feeling too rushed. On to of this, he went out of his way to drive me to the airport to catch my flight, which made my final day in Bangkok a lot less stressful!
