Ayutthaya is living lesson in history. Protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site with Outstanding Universal Value, this historic city is sure to take you back to a time of trading posts and royal courts. Though in ruins, a stroll through the magnificent prangs and monasteries in the area will give you a sense of the grandiose success of the second capital of the Siamese Kingdom.
Many claim that Ayutthaya was once the largest city in the world with over a million inhabitants. While that is debatable, records have clearly shown how it was the connection between the East and the West - an integral trading port between the Sixteenth and Eighteenth centuries - making it one of the biggest hub of cosmopolitanism back in the days. One look at the splendiferous structures and you can sense both the technological as well as creative prowess of this glorious kingdom.
We will explore this glorious heritage along with a dose of authentic Thai lifestyle, taking you across the city in a local tuk tuk. But first up, we will head to a floating market - one of the cultural highlights in Bangkok and a hub of daily life. You will be fascinated by the sight of hundreds of people going about in boats and selling wares ranging from fruits and vegetables to fishes and flowers. It’s a bewitching vibrancy that will seep into your memory, to stay forever.
Once you have encountered the contemporary Thai lifestyle, we will whisk you away to the old town and wrap you up in the enchanting roots of antiquity. Our first stop is the extremely popular Wat Phra Mahathat, one of the most important pilgrimage sites for Theravada Buddhists. Home to a Sukhotai-style image of Buddha dating back to the 14th century and notoriously famous for the ginormous banyan roots entwined around the head of a Buddha statue, the monastery is the most important one in the region and is also believed to house a tooth of Lord Buddha.
But Wat Phra is not the only monument that will impress you. The architectural opulence shoots off from every corner of the city, dotted with innumerable prangs, pagodas and chedis. The tour lets you stop at as many momentous landmarks as you want to and indulge in exciting photo opportunities. From the Wat Phra Si Sanphet or the Grand Palace, Wat Buddhaisawan, Wat Chaiwattaranaram to the Wat Ratchaburana and Wat Chai Mongkho, the city is a marvellous vision of awe-inspiring structures sweeping you off your feet. Feast your eyes on the spectacular panorama of incredible Ratnakosin Era architecture and lose yourself on the enigmatic pages of history - this is a one-of-a-kind experience you would want to sit really high on your bucket list!
