Tour Description:

Ayutthaya is an ancient city that was founded around 1350 and at one point in history was the trading capital in Asia between the India, China and Malay Archipelago. In the year 1700, the ancient city was known as the largest city in the world with 1 million inhabitants and it was the site where the merchants from rest of the world would congregate to trade. However, the city was left behind by the Siamese people after an invasion by the Burmese people in 1767 where they would eventually be relocated to Thonburi before settling in Bangkok. Today, remnants of the once majestic city that is located 80 kilometers north of Bangkok still remain for you to explore and you will catch a glimpse of the reliquary towers (prang) that are still erected and large monasteries from the Ayutthaya period that still remain under the shades of trees. The ruins of Ayutthaya was eventually recognized as the site of great heritage by the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.

The next stop of your journey will be to the historical park where you will have a chance to explore the Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, Wat Panan Choeng and the triple chedis of Wat Phra Sri Sanpret. The impressive architecture of the pagodas can be admired with various forms of mystical statues and other ornamentations that are decorated in the pagodas. The Wat Yai Chai Mongkol is known as one of the important historical landmarks of Ayutthaya based on the spectacular chedis that still remains high, which is even conspicuous from a distance if you are coming from the east. Visit the glorious Wat Panan Choeng that is the home of the 19 meter high seated Buddha statue, which is also made out of gold and the statue can be dated back to the 14th century. The Wat Phra Sri Sanpret was not a public temple but it was a temple solely for the royal family, which predates back to the Ayutthaya period before the area was destroyed by the Burmese people excluding the three chedis that remain towering over the land that can still be seen to this day.

After visiting the pagodas, you will have a chance to visit the Summer Palace at Bang-Pa In, which is located at the south of Ayutthaya. The Summer Palace was once the place where the royal family stayed during a summer retreat but the eventually became overgrown before being restored during the 19th century. A mixture of European and Chinese architecture can be spotted, as well as a blend of traditional Thai-style architecture that is seen in the pavilion of the palace. The blend of styles adds to the grandeur of the palace which can even be compared to the Palace of Versailles, in terms of its ambiance which makes it the best spot to take plenty of pictures!
