Description

The once mighty city of Ayutthaya was founded in 1350 and became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai. Cycling through the countryside and the historical city is the most enjoyable way to explore Ayutthaya. We take you off the beaten track and show you the real Ayutthaya!

After selecting the bicycle and a quick bike fitting we start the Ayutthaya bicycle tour from our office and follow the road in northern direction through idyllic villages, along rice paddies, visit a local elementary school (if open) to interact with the children.

We continue the ride and pass Phaniat Royal Elephant Kraal. During Ayutthaya’s heyday this structure was used to entrap wild elephants herded down from the north. The elephant round-ups in the Elephant Kraal were traditionally presided over by Ayutthaya kings who would choose the best and strongest elephants that would be trained for war and labor.

The closer we get to the old capital the more ruins of temples we see along the way. Around 12:00 hrs we will have a Thai lunch at a riverside restaurant.

After lunch we enter the old capital and visit Wat Mahathat, Wat Pra Sri Sanphet and explain you about the history of Ayutthaya and its temples and kings.

We continue the Colors of Ayutthaya bicycle tour with a short ride over a local market where typical local delicacies are baked, fried, sold and consumed. Not far from the market we make a stop at the huge reclining Buddha, the biggest one in Ayutthaya, at Luang Phor Lokayasuttha.

After we all have taken some pictures of this huge Buddha we continue our ride to another remarkable and beautiful temple on the west riverbank of the Chao Phraya river, Wat Chai Wattanaram. This temple was constructed in 1630 by King Prasat Thong as a memorial of his mother’s residence in that area.

After this impressive temple we continue our ride along the west bank of the Chao Phraya river until we reach the pier to cross the river again back to the city and finish the tour at our office (approx. 16:00 - 16:30 hrs).

If you like to ride a bicycle through the countryside and historical city of Ayutthaya this day trip, filled with rich cultural interest will adds lot of value to your stay in Thailand.

NOTE: Since you will visit ancient temples, you are expected to dress respectfully. We recommend you to wear longer shorts (knees covered) and to have your shoulders covered when we enter the temples.
