History & Background of Ayutthaya, Thailand

History & Background of Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya, a historical city with 50,000 residents in Thailand, lies just north of Bangkok, making it an ideal day trip destination. As the former capital of Thailand, it shares a reputation with Sukhothai for its remarkable historical sites. With over 400 temples, Ayutthaya’s crown jewel is the Ayutthaya Historical Park, home to grand temple complexes like Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Wat Mahathat, and Wat Ratchaburana. A single day is sufficient to explore the main attractions, but for a deeper exploration of the surrounding area, extending your stay is highly recommended.

Established in 1351, Ayutthaya served as the capital of the Kingdom of Siam for four centuries until 1767 when it was mostly destroyed during the Siamese-Burman War. Though Ayutthaya was never fully reconstructed to its former glory, some temples have been partially restored, and the city now holds the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. The surviving structures primarily consist of monasteries and palaces, as they were the sole stone buildings of the time. Amidst a leisurely tour or bicycle ride through the historical park, the magnificence of Ayutthaya’s heyday, when it housed over a million inhabitants, can still be felt. Adorned with exquisite temple ruins and palaces, Ayutthaya remains one of the most popular day trip options from Bangkok.

How to get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok for a day trip?

With just around 80 kilometers separating Bangkok and Ayutthaya, a day trip to this breathtaking temple city is an absolute highlight of any Thailand adventure. Luckily, there are several convenient options to make the journey from Bangkok to Ayutthaya a breeze. Whether you prefer the ease of a train, the convenience of a minivan, or the leisurely experience of a cruise with a guided tour, the transportation choices are plentiful. 

For independent explorers, taking charge of the trip planning allows for a more personalized Ayutthaya experience. Personally, we highly recommend the fast and budget-friendly train option, which we opted for during our own day trip to Ayutthaya. Alternatively, if you prefer a hassle-free approach, you can hire a private driver or join an organized tour that handles all the logistics for you. The choice is yours to make, but rest assured, the journey from Ayutthaya back to Bangkok is just as effortless.

By Train

Traveling by train offers a convenient and budget-friendly option for reaching Ayutthaya. It’s an excellent choice if you enjoy scenic views and want to experience a true Thai train journey. The train fares are the most affordable, with just 20 THB (~€0,50) per person for a 3rd class seat with a fan. Additionally, taking the train helps you avoid traffic congestion in Bangkok. Although the 3rd class seats lack air conditioning and may have hard benches, we personally found it to be a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Tickets for the 3rd class cannot be reserved in advance, so you can only purchase them at the train station itself. Alternatively, you can opt for 2nd class seats with air conditioning, which cost around 250 baht. For 2nd class tickets, you can make reservations online through 12GO or directly at the ticket office in the train station.

Trains depart from Bang Sue Grand Station (Krung Thep Aphiwat) or Don Mueang train station. To reach Bang Sue train station, you can take the blue MRT line. Trains typically run every 30-60 minutes, starting from 6.10 a.m. It’s advisable to check the updated schedule at the train station the day before your journey.

Travel time | 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the train. The first train leaves at  6:10 am from Bangkok and the last train at 11:23 PM.

Price | From 20 THB –  375 THB one way, depending on the type of train and seat.

By Minivan

If you prefer a more comfortable travel option, minivans provide a viable alternative. Departing from Mo Chit Bus Terminal near Chatuchak, minivans offer convenience and ease. To reach the bus station, take the BTS (Sukhumvit line) to Moh Chit station, followed by a short taxi ride or a 20-minute walk. The minivan journey typically takes around 2 hours and costs approximately 140 baht (~€4) for a one-way trip. Keep in mind that Bangkok’s traffic can be heavy, so it’s advisable to select a less congested time for your travel.

One downside of minivans is that they usually wait until they are full before departing, which may impact your schedule. On a positive note, the minivan stop is conveniently located just a 10-minute walk from the center of Ayutthaya. We recommend booking your minivan tickets in advance via 12GO to secure your preferred timing, as they can quickly sell out upon arrival. Additionally, locating the ticket office at Mo Chit Terminal can be challenging, making it more convenient to have your tickets beforehand.

Travel time | Depending on traffic, around 2 hours. The first minivan leaves around 6 AM and the last around 6 PM.

Price | From 70 baht (~€2) – 300 baht (~€8)

Private Guided Driver

If you have limited time to explore Ayutthaya and want to make the most of your visit, a private day tour is an excellent option. Booking a private driver through GetYourGuide provides fantastic choices for tailored experiences. The advantage of a private tour is the flexibility to choose which temples to visit, including those outside the Historical Park. You have full control over the itinerary, ensuring a convenient and efficient exploration of Ayutthaya. Additionally, the package includes entrance tickets, lunch, water, a knowledgeable private guide, insurance, and hotel pickup, offering a comprehensive and hassle-free experience.

Organized Group Tour

Discovering Ayutthaya from Bangkok is made easy with organized group tours. Departing daily, these tours offer the convenience of visiting the most popular temples without worrying about logistics. GetYourGuide provides a wide range of exceptional tours, many of which include hotel pickup, lunch, snacks, and entrance fees. One highly recommended option is this Ayutthaya tour from Bangkok, featuring transportation in an air-conditioned van, a certified tour guide, and lunch at a local restaurant. Joining an organized tour ensures hassle-free transportation and the opportunity to learn about each temple from an experienced guide. While it may differ from a private tour, it offers excellent value for the experience.

How to get around during a day trip in Ayutthaya?

If you’re planning to venture to Ayutthaya on a day trip independently, you have several options to explore the historical city and its temples. However, keep in mind that distances between the various temples are considerable, so renting a bike or tuk-tuk will make your journey much smoother.

By Bike | Renting a bicycle is among the most enjoyable ways to discover the Ayutthaya temples on your own. Although you’ll need to handle logistics and directions, it offers a delightful experience throughout the day. Rental spots are abundant in the area (see on maps below), with an average cost of around 60 baht (~€1.5) for the day, and a deposit may be required for the lock. Alternatively, consider joining guided bike tours that include a knowledgeable guide and lunch.

By Tuk-tuk | For those seeking a hassle-free option, hiring a Tuk-Tuk driver is an excellent choice. Tuk Tuks are readily available near the bus & train stations, making it easy to find one. Expect to pay around 300 baht (~$8) per hour for the services of a Tuk Tuk driver, who can take you from temple to temple and wait for you during your exploration.

By Foot | Some visitors prefer a combination of walking and using Tuk Tuks to visit the temples. For instance, you could take a Tuk Tuk from the train station to Wat Mahathat and return from Wat Chaiwatthanaram at the end. Negotiating skills come in handy here, as a single Tuk Tuk ride costs around 80-100 baht.

Practical information on visiting Ayutthaya as a day trip from Bangkok

Ayutthaya Day Trip | Entrance Fee

Upon entering the Ayutthaya Historical Park itself, no entrance fee is required. However, at certain temples, an entrance fee is applicable for foreigners, while others remain free. Fees typically range between 20 THB to 50 THB (~$0.50 – $1.50), varying depending on the temple. Active temples, however, are exempt from charges. When opting for an organized tour to Ayutthaya, the tour price usually covers the temple fees.

You have the option to purchase tickets individually or acquire a temple pass for 220 baht, granting access to six main temples: Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Wat Phra Ram, Wat Ratchaburana, Wat Chaiwatthanaram, Wat Mahathat, and Wat Maheyong. These passes can be obtained at the entrance of each aforementioned temple.

If your plan involves visiting several temples on your Ayutthaya day trip, the temple pass is a worthy investment. However, if you intend to explore only a few, paying individual fees might be more cost-effective.

Wat Ratchaburana

Venturing just north of Wat Mahathat, you’ll discover the enchanting Wat Ratchaburana, renowned for its original stucco works adorning the main prang. Delicate sculptures of mythical creatures and blooming lotuses grace the prang’s sides, a sight to behold! Deep-rooted in history, the temple has a tragic background story. It was constructed by King Borom Ratchathirat II in the 15th century to commemorate the tragic deaths of his two brothers, who fought for the vacant crown.

On the temple’s east side lies a crypt that once held numerous relics, now exhibited at the Chao Phraya National Museum. The compound’s centerpiece was used to house precious treasures like gold jewelry, artifacts, and sacred Buddhist tablets. Sadly, looters pillaged the vault in 1957, taking all its contents. Within the vault, magnificent mural paintings depicted Buddha’s life, though the ravages of time have left only a few visible traces.

Unlike many other temples, Wat Ratchaburana allows visitors to ascend its structures. There’s even a daring option to descend into the depths of one of its prominent structures, though currently, that area is closed for exploration.

This holy sanctuary boasted a magnificent 24-meter-tall golden Buddha and three impressive chedis holding the ashes of Ayutthaya’s revered kings.

The historical significance of this site and its exclusive ties to the royal family made it a prime target during the Burmese invasion of 1767, resulting in extensive destruction and looting of its precious gold treasures. Nevertheless, the Fine Arts Department valiantly restored the two other chedis in the 1950s, preserving the temple’s heritage.

MUST READ! Don’t ride elephants in Thailand

Please, refrain from riding elephants in Asia, including the Ayutthaya Historical Park. Educate yourself about the mistreatment these majestic creatures endure during the domestication process for riding. To our sadness, we noticed that numerous tourists were still riding elephants to explore the historical grounds. Unfortunately, many people are still unaware of the implications of elephant riding, as it has long been promoted as a tourist attraction in Thailand. Witnessing the living conditions and seeing the elephants chained up truly broke our hearts.

If you wish to have an authentic encounter with Thai elephants, consider visiting an ethical elephant sanctuary. These sanctuaries promote responsible and respectful interactions with elephants and offer opportunities to support the well-being of these incredible animals.
