Why Choose This Experience?

This is the perfect tour if you want to escape Bangkok for a day and discover more about the local food and the history of Thailand. Ayuttthaya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We will start from Bangkok and stop at local market along the way. We combine local life, markets, lots of snack, local food, and historical attraction. You will discover more about the local culture through food.


Phra Nakhon Sri Ayutthaya is one of the must cities that is easily done as a day trip from Bangkok. As the 2nd capital city of Thailand, it is full of history and culture. For many, the highlights are the temple ruins in the historical park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, for us the delicious local food is equally as exciting!

In this tour we travel by comfort of an air-conditioned car pick or minivan, with pick up and drop off from your hotel.

The Plan:

We will start by picking you up from hotel. After meeting the guide, we will take air-conditioned car to Ayutthaya

The first stop will be a visit to a local market where we will pick up many snacks, and charge your energy before a full day tour. The markets we visit may change depending on the day of the week.

Next us a quick stop in the town of Bang Pa-In, and a visit to the unique church-like temple of Wat Niwet Thammaprawat. The temple is located on island in the middle of the Chao Phraya River. Here we will have a little bit adventure by taking a cable to across the river to get to the temple.

Back on the road and a short drive to Ayutthaya, where we will start with a visit to Wat Phanan Choeng, which is the home of the biggest seated Buddha image in Ayutthaya.

We will continue to visit 3 more Ayutthaya's most impressive temples, such as Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, Wat Mahathat and Wat Phra Si Sanphet. We will break up the temple stops with food breaks.

Along the way we will stop to taste the best food in the city, whether it be random snacks in the market, lunch by the river - with giant prawns from the river, some of the city’s legendary "boat noodles", and a surprise snack or 2. You will not go hungry! There are also vegetarian food options available throughout.

At the end of the tour, we will return you to your hotel in Bangkok or help you find your way to wherever you are going next.

Tours with children: Children are welcome but we may need to adapt according to the ages, especially with regards to the number of temples and the food choices. Where possible we will take you to a local eatery but we appreciate that children can be selective in what they eat, and we have a range of options available. Your guide will review the options with you.

Food Safety: We take food safety very seriously and all the places that we eat at we believe are of an acceptable standard and cleanliness to take guests to, but it is impossible to 100% rule out any risk of food poisoning. Our food safety record is very good and we have found it more likely a customer will get sick from a hotel breakfast as from food prior to our tour than during it.
