We took a trip to Ayutthaya from Bangkok! 

We booked through Get Your Guide - Book the same trip here.

We decided to visit the Ancient City of Ayutthaya, the old capital of Thailand. We knew that we wanted to see these amazing temples so decided to opt for a day trip from Bangkok. The drive to Ayutthaya took a few hours then we hopped on the boat back to Bangkok that took about the same amount of time!

You could spend a lot more than half a day visiting the sights of Ayutthaya, during our trip we visited 4 main sights.

We left Bangkok at 7:30am and headed for Bang Pa-In Summer Palace, this was a beautiful place with a mix of Chinese and European style architecture. 

We then visited Wat Mahathat to explore the ancient ruined palaces. This was unbelievably beautiful & is famous for the Head of the Buddha, that has the roots of a mangrove tree growing around it!
After this we vivsited the biggest reclining Buddha (42 meters long & 8 meters high) in Ayutthaya at Wat Lokayasutharam. 

After seeing all these amazing sights we heading back to Bangkok around 1pm on a River Cruise, where we were served a Thai & European buffet lunch whilst we took in views of the famous Bangkok river side attractions such as the Wat Arun & Royal Grand Palace from the comfort of the air-conditioned boat!
