Full description
Meet your guide your hotel lobby at 9 AM. Depart for Ayuthaya, which is about 1 hour from Bangkok. Witness the glory of the ancient capital of Siam, now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site as you explore the temple and palace ruins. First, visit Wat Phu Khao Thong, or the Monastery of the Golden Mount, which is located just outside Ayuthaya. Then, proceed to the ancient palace and Wat Phra Si Sanphet. Make a stop at Viharn Phra Mongkol Bopit, one of the largest bronze Buddha’s in Thailand. After lunch at a local restaurant, drive another hour to the province of Lopburi, one of the oldest cities in the country. Discover how this city was historically within the large Khmer empire and was briefly the capital of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. The biggest tourist draw in Lopburi is Phra Prang Sam Yod - also known as the Monkey Temple. Many mischievous macaques live in the temple grounds and surrounding streets, happy to relieve people strolling by of snacks, drinks, sunglasses, and other items. After saying goodbye to the monkeys, get a 2-hour transfer back to your hotel in Bangkok.

    This tour was excellent. Moo our guide was very informative and looked after us on the day. Thanks Moo you did a great job. The monkeys at Lopburi are fun to feed but there are so many of them and you have to be careful that they don’t jump on you. This part of the tour may not be suitable for very young children as the monkeys run free. Great for adults though. Ayutthaya is really interesting and loved the history. I have done this tour before and enjoyed it this time as much as the last. Being on a private tour is the best way to travel.

    Place not to get lost!

    One of the most parents tours I've experienced without a doubt during my stay in Bangkok, the very attentive and enthusiastic guide. I recommend that you do not carry items that the monkeys can remove since they are very clever eh even if you carry a backpack, they can open it ... eye. I highly recommend it
