TOUR FROM BANGKOK TO AYUTTHAYA – ON PRIVATE BASIS –

TOUR DESCRIPTION. The tour starts with a pickup by an air-conditioned minivan from your hotel in downtown Bangkok, leaving for Ayutthaya, and requires a full day. 

Ayutthaya was one of the ancient capitals of Thailand and is a UNESCO World Heritage listed site. The magnificent ancient capital was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong, King of Siam, at the junction point of the Lopburi, the Prasak and the Chao Phraya Rivers. During its 417 years as the capital, 33 kings of 5 dynasties ruled the kingdom. These Siamese kings repelled many Burmese raids, but the city was finally sacked by the Burmese in 1767, closing this chapter in history.
Tourbangkok.org tours to Ayutthaya take in what are now the ruins of this ancient city and its historical precinct protected by the UNESCO World Heritage Listing.
You will see crumbling ruins and rows of headless Buddha’s and statues where an empire once bloomed, but yet so, it will still leave you in awe, because of its amazing architecture and memorable mix of Khmers and Sukothai styled temples.
There are some interesting options for getting around also – you can ride through the ruins atop an elephant, or take a ride in a horse-drawn cab.

TOUR AYUTTHAYA + LOPBURI

ABOUT LOPBURI. Situated 150 kilometers north of Bangkok, Lopburi is one of the oldest cities in Thailand, dating back to the Dvaravati period when it was known as Lavo. The influence of the Khmer empire is particularly evident throughout the city, but it reached the peak of its commercial, cultural, and political importance when the seventeenth century Siamese King Narai made it his second capital.

The ruins seen in Lopburi today are mainly from this era, including the large palace on the Lopburi River. Narai was also responsible for restoring many of the Khmer temples, as well as various monuments that he restored and transformed into Buddhist shrines.

Today, hundreds of monkeys have made some of the major ruins of Lopburi their home. These macaques have become as much a part of the city as the ruins themselves, but it’s wise for visitors to stay on their guard as they will steal cameras, small bags, and, in particular, anything that remotely resembles food!

TOUR BACKGROUND. The Ayutthaya historical park covers the ruins of the ancient city of Ayutthaya, once upon a time Capital of the Kingdom of Siam (Thailand today). Founded by King Ramathibodi I in 1350, Ayutthaya was the capital of the country until its destruction by the Burmese army in 1767.
In 1969, the Fine Arts Department began with renovations of the ruins, which became more serious after the place was declared an historical park from UNESCO in 1976. The park was declared a UNESCO World heritage site in 1991. The city was called “The City of Kings ” because 33 monarchs, including King Rama IV, governed from Ayutthaya.
