Ayutthaya City and Historical Park Bike Tour

1. Ayutthaya City and Historical Park Bike Tour

Get acquainted with a former capital of Thailand on a bike tour of Ayutthaya. Discover the ruins of Pom Phet on the old city walls to get a sense of what ancient travelers felt when they arrived at the Kingdom of Siam. Pedal through local neighborhoods and pass vendors selling roti sai mai, a delicious dessert of threads of palm sugar wrapped in a round of unleavened bread. Experience the peace of Somdet Phra Srinakarinda Park as you cycle to Chedi Phra Si Suriyothai, and then continue along the banks of the river to discover a Muslim community that makes hand-woven mobiles from palm leaves. Enter Ayutthaya Historical Park to look at the ruins of old temples. Stop at Wat Phra Sri Sanphet in the grounds of the Royal Palace, and take souvenir photos of the famous Buddha statue at Wat Mahathat. Experience the hustle and bustle of Chao Phrom Market, known for its amulet shops and food stalls. Take the ferry across the Pasak River and cycle back to the starting point.

Ayutthaya: 3-Hour Sunset Ride Bike Excursion

2. Ayutthaya: 3-Hour Sunset Ride Bike Excursion

During this Ayutthaya Sunset Ride, explore the former capital of Thailand and UNESCO World Heritage Site by night. After sunset, the ruins and temples in the ancient capital are beautifully illuminated by spotlights from the ground contrasting with the pitch black sky. With explanations from your guide, imagine how beautiful Ayutthaya’s temples were and how powerful the Thai kings of Ayutthaya were before its destruction by the Burmese army in 1767. As soon as you have selected a bicycle, ride to the pier where you will board a ferry to cross the Pa Sak River. Once you arrived on the other side, cycle through Chao Phrom Market, the most famous local market in Ayutthaya. Then cycle along Chankasem Palace, nowadays a national museum, the old prison and Hua Ro Market before you arrive at Bang Ian Night Market. Park your bicycles and walk through this busy night market with many vendors selling clothes and, of course, food. Have appetizers here and get a glimpse of the local nightlife. Once the sun has set, cross the road to Wat Mahathat, one of the most famous temple complexes in Ayutthaya Historical Park. Wat Mahathat, a royal monastery, once served as the seat of the Sangaraja, the head of the Buddhist monks. Continue your spectacular evening bike ride and pass the illuminated Wat Ratchaburana and Wat Phra Ram. Of course, you can stop to make some pictures. The next impressive temple will be Wat Phra Si Sanphet built in several phases during the 15th and 16th-centuries. It was located inside the compound of the Grand Palace and served as a royal chapel. After the Burmese conquered Ayutthaya, the temple was sacked and mostly destroyed; all that remained were the three chedis which contain the ashes of three Ayutthaya kings. For dinner, you will stop at a local restaurant where your guide will order some delicious Thai dishes. After dinner, continue exploring Ayutthaya and cycle over the bridge to cross the Chao Phraya River where you will be able to see the illuminated ruins of the magnificent Wat Chaiwattanaram in the distance. A couple of minutes later, you will be standing in front of this stunning temple complex, wonderfully lit up at night. Wat Chaiwattanaram was built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong to honor his mother, featuring the architectural style influenced by the Angkor temple in Cambodia. The moon, shining brightly high up in the dark sky, makes this amazing temple look even more magical. Before returning to the office, make a last stop at Wat Lokayasutharam to take a picture of the huge reclining Buddha, the largest in Ayutthaya. While cycling back, you pass the enlightened Ayutthaya City Pillar or Lak Muang. People visit the city pillar to make offerings and pray for good fortune, pregnancy and other favors. Arrive at the office again where this amazing Ayutthaya sunset bicycle adventure ends.

Bi, we forgot the full, correct name, was a great guide with excellent knowledge, good English, great enthusiasm (and last but not least so good that he incidentally attracted the attention and attention of young ladies of different nationalities). The tour was very well organized and very good despite the heat. Bi told us that the local leader is from Holland (so the orange shirts) and you can feel the Dutch are riding in the blood.

Interesting and safe to be guided around Ayutthaya and the city's ruins by an experienced, confident guide. Stott assessed our abilities, made sure we were comfortable on our bikes and equipment, we were prepared and knew all the signals he would be using. He shepherded us across busy streets safely and we meandered through streets and markets we would not otherwise have seen.

Interesting and fun, warm (during the day), friendly guide (if we were concerned a little harder / better articulate), good bikes, well cared for.

Super great and educational excursion by bike. We would book the excursion again at any time.
