If you would like to visit Ayutthaya which was the old capital city of Thailand prior to Bangkok you will see the old temples and buildings in the centre of the town. There are many areas to see including lots of market and food stalls while you stroll through this ancient city or take a ride on one of the elephants or in a horse drawn carriage. There are many things to do in the city itself and around the area. Some of these are listed below but we will tailor your trip to suit your requirements and book any accommodation you require.

Wat Phra Mahthat

The most famous part of this temple in Ayutthaya is a stone buddha head that has had a tree grow all around it, encompassing it with its roots. The temple site has several other broken ruined buddha statues around, and many chedis of course.

River Trip & Dinner

Take a leisurely cruise on a boat along the river which surrounds Ayutthaya and enjoy the fine food that they prepare while watching the cultural show before being returned to your Hotel.

Local market

Visit the local market in the centre of the city and pick up some bargains or try some of the delicious snacks that are cooked fresh every day.

Elephant Camp
