Why this experience?

The UNESCO World Heritage site of Ayutthaya Historical Park is an absolute must-do day trip from Bangkok. Ayutthaya, a former kingdom of Siam (ancient Thailand), dates over 400 years and is dotted with beautiful temple ruins and palaces. But Ayutthaya is not all about ancient ruins. Ayutthaya is a gastronomic destination for local diners thanks to restaurants serving family recipes refined over generations. This trip perfectly combines exploring Ayutthaya's majestic ancient ruins and eating at the restaurants that only local people know about.

Visiting 3 highlighted temples, you get to marvel at beautiful ancient Thai architecture and learn about history of the Ayutthaya kingdom in a nut-shell. The experience includes a long-tail boat ride on Chao Phraya river which almost encircles Ayutthaya. You will enjoy green and serene views of Ayutthaya's countryside and peaceful riverside scenery. Get your camera ready!

Highlights

  • At Muslim restaurant in Bangrak, Bangkok

    3 most beautiful temples of Ayutthaya and history of the Ayutthaya kingdom is a nutshell

    You can spend days visiting all ancient sites of Ayutthaya but we save your time by taking you to the most worth-visiting ones. While you marvel at the ancient architecture, our tour guide tells you everything you need to know about this ancient kingdom and fun tales of each site.

  • Green Curry with Roti

    Delicious Thai food at restaurants that only Thai people know about

    There will be at least 3 food stops, all of which serve Ayutthaya's best delicacies such as dishes cooked with vegetables native to Southeast Asia, chicken noodle soup, fried Tilapia, Tom Yam soup, river prawns in red curries, and more. The restaurants are paced out between temple stops. You will not be able to find some of the dishes anywhere else but at these restaurants.

  • Strolling around in Bangrak street food alley, Bangkok

    3 Enjoy giant river prawns a size of your palms

    One of Ayutthaya's best delicacies is giant river prawns. These fresh water prawns are freshly caught, grilled, and served with spicy seafood sauce. Eating with rice, the combination is fork-licking good! At the same restaurant, we will take you into the kitchen to see chef working magic on your dishes.

  • Strolling around in Bangrak street food alley, Bangkok

    See how Thai candy floss with roti is made

    Another Ayutthaya's delicacy, the candy floss with sweet roti is a Thai favorite snack. At the shop, you will see how locals make this snack. You may even try pulling the can floss (to make the floss finer) yourself.

  • Cruising over Chaophaya river, Bangkok

    Take a fun boat ride around Ayutthaya Island

    Ayutthaya's Old Town is surrounded by 3 rivers, making it an island. You will enjoy the peaceful riverside scenery, get to feed some fish, and arrive to our last temple stop by boat. Arriving to the temple by boat offers a perspective rarely seen by average travelers.

Itinerary

From your hotel where we pick you up, the ride takes 1.5 hour to arrive to our first stop in Ayutthaya, Wat Phanan Choeng Temple, home to the biggest Buddha statue in the Ayutthaya kingdom. After visiting the candy floss with sweet roti shop, we make it to the second temple, Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon Temple with a huge stupa that offers a panoramic view of the area. By lunch time, we will hit the first restaurant for chicken fried noodle, and delicious dishes made with local vegetables. The fun boat ride follows. We will get dropped off at Wat Chaiwatthanaram, then continue to our final food stop, a riverside restaurant. Here, you will have the giant river prawns, Tom Yam soup, fried Tilapia, river prawns in red curry to name a few. The tour finishes when our van drops you off at your hotel between 5.30pm and 6pm.

Ayutthaya Day Trip Food Tour with Olive....Amazing!

5.0

A Thai friend of ours recommended Ayutthaya as a must see in Thailand. We had also been wanting to do a food tour, so this was the perfect combination. We weren't able to do the regular Thursday tour, and weren't really sure if we should pay the extra money for a private tour...we were so, so very happy we did decide to pay the extra and take the tour. This was most definitely a highlight of our trip. Very worthwhile.

Not only did we get to tour a fantastically beautiful and culturally rich city with a very interesting and knowledgeable guide, but we got to stuff our faces with unique and amazing food while doing it. It was 2 of the most wonderful aspects of traveling all rolled into one....all without the stress of having to research or plan anything. Even if we had been planning, I don't think we would have been able to find and put together a trip anywhere as good. There is a good reason Bangkok food tours is recommended by Lonely Planet...and me :)

Hands-down to one of the best and friendliest tour guide ever: Olive!!! She even became Facebook friends with our family. The itinerary they made was so good. The food in each place were so delicious. We are so craving for the lotus & those giant shrimps again. I want to eat the candy floss again too.

I shared with Olive how my sister & I were such fans of Bhuppae Sunniwat. She indulged us by making sure we had time to take great photos in a shooting location. Olive is very relaxed to be with. She is informative. She also indulges you by making sure you are comfortable, well fed and had a good time.

Ayutthaya: Beautiful sights, lovey smells, and delicious flavors.

5.0

The Ayutthaya food and history tour was the highlight of our trip to Thailand. Olive, our guide, really had our best interest in mind and made us feel comfortable in a foreign place. From cautioning prices at tourist traps to having our boat driver turn us around to get a look at a lizard someone in our party wanted to see. She really bent over backward to accommodate us in every way. She was also very knowledgeable in the history, architecture, food, and culture of this area. Also any questions she didn't have an answer to she was quick to find out for us.

Bangkok food tours pulled some strings at the last minute to get us a trip that did not meet their usual schedule and were extremely helpful and timely with all of our correspondence.

This tour really showed us how beautiful, fragrant, and delicious Ayutthaya can be. From old style Thai food to ancient city wats, this really is an amazing trip for anyone looking to experience Thailand's culture.

We took a food tour with Bangkok Food Tours, led by Olive. Got picked up at our hotel in Bangkok, and visited 3 of the 500 temples at Ayutthaya. Olive knew some great places to for lunch there, and also stopped next to river on the way back for river prawns. food was great, the ruins were great and Olive was great.
