Wat Mahathat, the temple of the Great Relic was one of the most important temples in the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Located on the historical island the large monastery features a huge central prang, a very large principal viharn and ubosot and a great number of subsidiary chedis and viharns. The upper part of its once massive central prang has collapsed. Today only the base remains.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Wat Na Phra Meru

Wat Na Phra Men or the Monastery in Front of the Funeral Pyre sometimes called
Wat Na Phra Meru is located off the city island in the northern area of Ayutthaya in Tha
Wasukri sub-district. The temple is located along Khlong Sra Bua and the north bank of
the Khlong Mueang just opposite the ancient Grand palace. It was registered as a
National Historic Site with the Fine Arts Department on 25 February 1935.

Stop At: Temple of the Reclining buddha (Wat Lokayasutharam), Ayutthaya, Ayutthaya Province

Wat Lokayasutharam is situated at Pratoochai District, behind the Ancient Palace and the Pratoochai Primary School, in the area 0f Wat Worapoh (Wat Rakhang) and Wat Worachettharam.
Wat Lokayasutharam is 800 meters from Wat Phra Mongkon Bophit. Wat Worachettharam and Wat Worapoh are also closeby. Nevertheless, we had quite some difficulty finding Wat Lokayasutharam, likely our otherwise good Ayutthaya map, was a bit off the mark.

    I loved every minute of it, i have got absolutely nothing bad to say it was the best especially our guide Donna her personality
    and her Worth is everything. Remember if you don't speak Thai don't complain about her English.

    Very pleasant tour. An easy pace, knowledgeable guide. A substantial buffet lunch on the boat. Lots to see on the boat ride back to Bangkok.

    Our tour guide, Pang, was very knowledgeable, but when arriving at a each destination he had a tendency to rush ahead instead of ensuring all guests were off the bus, present and accounted for. Consequently, information he shared was not often missed.

    The day we toured the king's Summer Palace was the same day the king was visiting. It was very cool seeing all the military in dress whites waiting in anticipation. The grounds are beautiful as well as the buildings. Loved this destination.

    The other thing to note is that we were under the impression that Auytthaya was a single destination based on the many pictures available online. Although we did receive a map at the start of the tour explaining Auytthaya spanned about 46 acres, we were not told we would have to make multiple stops to visit select sites within the 46 acres but we eventually figured it out. The sites chosen were definitely worthwhile. No way to explore all 46 acres in one day.

    The boat trip back was very long and there was not much to see along the banks of the river until we got closer to the city of Bangkok. I could have done without the boat trip and just taken the bus back. That said, the lunch buffet on the boat was quite good.

    Missed communication of hotel pickup. No confirmation email for hotel pick-up. Also, thought this was private booking for small group but it was with a bus of 50 people.

    Well organize trip. Our tour guide Pon was very funny and knowledgeable. He made our trip memorable. I strongly recommend this trip.

    Donna took the tour from great to exceptional! 4 sites, river cruise and lunch was all perfect! Can't say enough how entertaining and informative Donna is!

  • 17-Jan-2020

    We enjoyed a day away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and ventured into the surrounding countryside to visit temples,see some ruins and hear the history of these magnificent structures.Our tour guide Mr Pon was very informative and knowledgeable as he gave us information on the sites we visited.He also answered any queries from individual guests in a friendly and jovial manner. If your tour gets Mr Pon you’re in for a treat.
    The river cruise back to Bangkok and the buffet style lunch was an enjoyable way to bring the day to a close.

    The Tour guide SaSa was fun and engaging. The sites were interesting and the lunch was REALLY REALLY GOOD! Ayutthaya was a nice getaway from Bangkok with beautiful and intriguing sites. Especially loved the summer palace.

    Me and Wife did this day trip. donna the tour guide was absolutely great and amazing at what she does, she was funny informative and helpful the entire trip. Certainly worth doing the trip as its organised very well, we were picked up punctually in the morning and dropped off by 4PM. The sites are amazing and the buffet lunch in the afternoon is very good too.

    Tour was great, transportation was beyond comfortable. You really cant hear much of what the guide is saying with the bus being so loud/outside traffic noise. They should add a small flyer which tells you the exact route and time available at each stop. The River cruise is on a giant ship with a buffet so if you were expecting the ambiance of a small river boat just be aware thats not what it was. The River cruise takes up about 2 hours which was great but just something to be aware of if you get sea sick/boat sick. Great tour overall, would do it again.
