History & Culture
Meet up at hotel lobby (in Bangkok area)
First, visit Wat Phanan Choeng.
The temple was built in 1324 even before Ayutthaya was founded! Admire the gigantic gilded Buddha image.
Move on 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.
Then, we'll visit Wat Mahathat.
Apart from the iconic Buddha head in the tree roots, the ancient ruin is stunning with Khmer-style stupas.
Grab local lunch.
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.
Walk around Ayutthaya Historical Park and immerse in the glorious past .
Head back to Bangkok. Get some rest on the ride back.
Drop off at the meeting point.
