Itinerary

Historic Ayutthaya

Towering chedis amidst crumbling ruins create the ancient city of Ayutthaya. Situated just north of Bangkok, Ayutthaya once claimed Thailand’s capital, but that governance ended abruptly in 1767 when the city was sacked by Burmese invaders. Despite the destruction, these ruins emanate the city’s prior dominance, beauty, and rich history.

An easy day ride, this tour reveals the historic treasures of Thailand. From the impressive ruins of Ayutthaya to a European-style Buddhist temple, this bike trip takes you off the beaten path and onto the local trails through authentic Thailand. After a short transfer from your Bangkok hotel, we’ll take our bikes to explore the ruins of the impressive Ayutthaya Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1991. Its distinct reputation is well earned–weathered layers of burnt bricks compose the stately stupas and chedis that guard these grounds. First, we’ll see Wat Yai Chaimongkol and its towering chedi, one so large that it presently is sinking. Then, biking through the ancient city’s walls, we’ll visit Wat Phra Mahatat, the symbolic heart of the old city now famed for the picturesque tree roots that ensnarl its imbedded Buddha relic. Fruitful jujube trees still surround the Old Royal Palace, our next stop. From there we’ll have time to continue exploring these precarious, precious structures, including the prominent Wat Chaiwattanaram.

The final ride to Wat Niwet Thamprawatang is a real pleasure as we must cross the river via cable cars. The ride up till here will give you an escape into the Thai countryside, riding on quiet roads passing by the local communities that line this part of the Chao Phraya River.
