In a time when kings ruled heaven and Earth, when thunder was a sign of the gods and floods were nature’s way of saying spring had arrived, Ayutthaya was one of the world’s largest and strongest cities. See how the original western traders and emissaries fared against the Almighty King, whose audiences were held with everyone's face on the floor. Experience the Kingdom's magical ruins in all their glory.
A journey back in time: Ayutthaya, a name derived from the ancient Ayodhya, 'the Unconquerable City' and birth place of the Buddha. Our licensed guides will ensure you are happily entertained with stories about Kings Narai the Great and Naresuan the Great, as well as anecdotes and funny facts about all the places you will visit: Two of the original 17th century foreign embassies, the sea shell temple, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and much more. Around midday you take a break and have lunch on an old rice barge on the river, and on the way back the Summer Palace, where the kings and their retinues spent the their days during the hot season in Siam, is scheduled. If there is time left, there is also an opportunity to go see local craftspeople working their magic with wood, metal and cloth. All in all, a wonderful day!!
