Meet up at hotel lobby (in Bangkok area)
Let's start our ancient Ayutthaya tour by visiting Wat Phanan Choeng where you can admire the gigantic gilded Buddha image. Built in 1324, it existed even before Ayutthaya was founded! Then, let's move on to Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, which was built by King U-Thong (Ayutthaya's first king) in 1357. It's indeed very photogenic with enormous pagodas and rows of Buddha images. Then, we'll visit Wat Mahathat, known for the iconic Buddha head in the tree roots and the stunning Khmer-style stupas.
After seeing all the staggering temples, we'll grab some local lunch at a local restaurant. Don't worry if you don't know what to eat. I'll help you decide! After your stomach is full, we'll move to Ayothaya Market, where you can take a stroll and relax, or shop for some souvenirs. There are many cool local things sold here!
After winding down at Ayothaya Market, we'll start to head back to Bangkok. You can get some rest and take a nap on the ride back!
We are now in Bangkok. I'll drop off safe and sound full of smiles at the meeting point. I hope you enjoyed the trip and the experience!
