Then proceed to Ayutthaya. Arriving at Ayutthaya, visit to “Krungsri Walking Street”, an old retro style floating market that many people say is the most popular because it is full of food such as Thai buffet, snack. Thai and Ayutthaya OTOP products. The atmosphere of Ayutthaya old town again.

Check in at the hotel.
DAY 2: Ayutthaya
Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included
Breakfast at your hotel. Meet our guide at the hotel, proceed to Ayutthaya World Heritage Site.
When we arrive, visit Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, “the Monastery of Auspicious Victory” is located at the East of the historical island. Highlight of the monastery is its very large imposing prang dominating the area. Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon is still an active temple; monks live in Kuti on the grounds.
Then we visit Wat Mahathat. Wat Mahathat, “the temple of the Great Relic” was one of the most important temples in the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Located on the historical island the large monastery features a huge central prang, a very large principal Viharn and Ubosot and a great number of subsidiary Chedis and Viharns.
After that we visit to Ayutthaya Historical Park rest on the island framed by three significant rivers: Chao Phraya, Lopburi and Pasak, the historic temples, palaces and remaining architectures of the ancient kingdom of Ayutthaya are one of Thailand’s most precious historical sites. The 715-acre area has been listed the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991 as it portrays the heydays of one of the largest kingdoms in IndoChina history.
Lunch at Pra Norm Chicken Noodle Restaurant or similar.
After lunch, we visit to Ayutthaya Elephant Palace & Royal Kraal. Phaniat is very big for the king to stay and watch the elephant round-up or catching wild elephants in the Phaniat, which is a traditional ceremony to select elephants to for official use both in peace and war. A mahout would lure elephants from outside the city into the Phaniat then select only the required one for training. When there are state guests, the king would always offer them the Elephant Round-up, because this ceremony is not only an elephant selection, but also a kind of entertainment.
Then visit to Ayothaya Floating Market in the old city of Ayutthaya which make a nice change from just visiting old temple ruins all day. Now you can break up your time to make a more balanced day trip from Bangkok. Earlier I visited Ayutthaya Klong Sa Bua Floating Market which is to the north of the old city.
After that we have dinner on cruise around Ayutthaya and take in the romantic atmosphere of the old capital. Preserved in its beauty are precious treasures, artistic and cultural heritage for later generations to admire. You will have ample opportunity to discover some of these magnificent sites along the river.
Return to your hotel.
