Bangkok and Ayuthaya tour
Explore the ancient riverside temples of UNESCO World Heritage Site and former Siamese capital Ayuthaya
Bangkok's - behind the scenes views and a tour of UNESCO Ayuthaya
En route to or from most destinations in Southeast Asia then the chances are you’ll probably find yourself passing through Bangkok (or at least Bangkok Airport) at some stage so why not stop over a few days? Recover from your outbound flight before your tour starts, chill out for a while afterwards, before the return journey home as well as, not least, getting the most out of your airfare!?
This 2-day Bangkok and Ayuthaya itinerary provides you with a great introduction to Thailand’s vibrant capital city or – if this isn’t your first visit – then allows you to discover some new parts of the fascinating metropolis, as well as participating in a boat and bicycle (or tuk-tuk for the less energetic) tour of the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site and former Siamese capital of Ayuthaya.
Ruined temples, royal temples, street markets and street-life; the famous sites as well as the lesser known ones by boat, bicycle, local train, sky-train and tuk-tuk. A fascinating and original private tour with licensed English speaking guide and accommodation in good mid-range, centrally located hotels.
The price of £185 is per person based on two people sharing. For individuals, families or larger groups, please ask for a price.
Suitable for any tour starting, finishing, or even passing through, Thailand’s capital and transport hub Bangkok.
Here's an idea of what you can expect to do and see day-to-day.

From here the ‘sky-train’ takes us past Lumphini Park to the City’s commercial heart of Siam Square where we detour to visit the fascinating Jim Thompson Museum.
