Smiling Albino

Ancient Ayutthaya

Discover the ruins of the ancient Siamese capital of Ayutthaya, once one of the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan cities, before it was razed by the Burmese in 1767.


Before Bangkok became a hub for international travelers and traders, there was Ayutthaya. Like its modern-day counterpart, the former Thai (Siam) capital was one of the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan cities.

Departing early for the one-and-a-half hour journey allows for stops at impressive, lesser-known attractions along the way to Ayutthaya, where the towering brick remains of the largely-abandoned metropolis are best enjoyed in the morning light. 

The day includes an optional bicycle ride for the adventurous (our favorite!), riverside lunch, a chartered longtail boat ride and some surprises along the way. This intimate exploration of Ayutthaya will leave you with a genuine appreciation for the city’s significance to the Thai people and why it is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


  • With only ~50,000 inhabitants amidst a city once occupied by a million residents, Ayutthaya shelters a wealth of hidden treasures

  • Its convenient location and kid-friendly, hands-on activities and experiences make Ayutthaya a top family day trip from Bangkok.

  • More than the ruins of a fallen kingdom, Ayutthaya features deep layers of symbolism that shaped the development of Bangkok and Thai culture.
