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.

The temple was built in 1324 even before Ayutthaya was founded! Admire the gigantic gilded Buddha image.

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.

It was a long and hot day, so having the comfort of an air-conditioned car was definitely worth it! Tun was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the temples, and answered all our questions.

Beautiful, intriguing, worthwhile
Our guide, Gift was knowledgeable, took good care of us, allowed plenty of time for photo's, quiet moments, was happy to take things at our pace whilst ensuring we missed nothing of importance. Happy to answer all our questions about local culture and history. Summer Palace was beautiful and Ayutthaya simply stunning as well as restful. Floating market is basically a rustic-type mall constructed with tourists in mind. Worthwhile trip including some beautiful Temples.
