Full description
On this tuk tuk tour, experience the city at night to see the lit up temples of Ayutthaya. The first stop is just in time for dinner as you will get to experience the local night market and explore different Thai dishes! Afterwards, start your journey to the 3 significant temples of Ayutthaya.

The first temple on the itinerary is Wat Phra Si Sanphet, which was the holiest temple on the site of the old Royal Palace in Thailand's ancient capital of Ayutthaya until the city was completely destroyed by the Burmese in 1767. It was the grandest and most beautiful temple in the capital and it served as a model for Wat Phra Kaeo in Bangkok. Then, visit Wat Ratchaburana, which was founded in 1424 by King Borommarachathirat II of the Ayutthaya Kingdom and built on the cremation site of his two elder brothers. The two brothers had fought to their deaths in a duel for the royal succession to their father Intha Racha. In 1957, the temple's crypt was looted of a large number of Buddha images and gold artifacts. The thieves were later caught, but few of the treasures were recovered.

Enjoy the last stop at Wat Chaiwatthanaram, which is a Buddhist temple in the city of Ayutthaya Historical Park located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, outside Ayutthaya island. It is one of Ayutthaya's best-known temples and a major tourist attraction. The tour will end with a transfer back to your hotel in Bangkok with a unique memory from your time in Thailand.
