If you’ve already explored Bangkok and have time to spare before heading north to Chiang Mai or south to the islands, a visit to the old capital of Ayutthaya is highly recommended. While you can get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok by public transport, it’s much more comfortable to go by private vehicle. I will meet you at your hotel and you will travel to Ayutthaya (about 90 minutes north of Bangkok) by private van. You’ll visit all of the important sights in the old capital, including the Bang-Pa-In Summer Palace, the Historical Park and the main temples and archeological sights on the island of Ayutthaya.
This tour takes about nine hours from Bangkok. At the conclusion of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Bangkok.
We recommend a starting time of 8am, but 9am is also possible.
- The total tour price is $450 USD for 1 to 6 people, and it includes the guide fee, the car/van fee, the driver’s fee, parking, tolls and gasoline.
- The $450 fee is PER PRIVATE GROUP of people, not per person! So if you are a family of four, the $450 fee covers all four of you.
- You can pay in US dollar or Thai baht cash at the conclusion of the tour or by PayPal in advance.
