Morning tour of Ayutthaya


| May 15, 2020

Explore the ancient city of Ayutthaya in a ‘kermit’ tuk tuk (auto-rickshaw), a special type of motorised tuk tuk available only in Ayutthaya and Trang province in southern Thailand. Discover the magnificent ruins and ancient temples in the Phra Nakorn Sri Ayutthaya Historical Park, which protects the ruins of the old city. Founded as the country's capital by King Ramathibodi I in 1350, the city was destroyed by the invading Burmese army in 1767, but restored during the establishment of the historical park. The area is now a Unesco world heritage site, with various temples, shrines, statues and a study centre. Make a brief stop near the Muslim quarter and sample one of the most famous delights of Ayutthaya - candyfloss roti. Visit local houses to see how handicrafts, such as palm leaf fish mobiles, are produced, and stroll through the local market where your guide can give you recommendations on some tasty local delicacies to try.
