Thailand’s historic capital and once heralded as the grandest city on Earth, Ayuthaya today is a fascinating collection of monuments to a time when the Thai kingdom extended well beyond its present day borders.
With TUI, explore the remnants of the Ayuthaya kingdom by foot and by boat along the Chao Phraya River, from where temple towers dominate the landscape. In the World Heritage-listed Ayuthaya Historical Park, we visit several of the 14th and 15th century wats and royal compounds, including Wat Phra Si Sanphet, with its huge temple ruins that once housed a 250 kilogram gold Buddha.
We cruise back to Bangkok, passing the graceful spires of the classic Ayuthaya style on route before reaching the city outskirts and returning to Bangkok.
