Ayutthaya lies about an hours journey by coach to the north of the city and was the proud and powerful
ancient capital of Siam until its destruction, 230 or so years ago. Much of the fabulous ornate city was lost at that
time, but what remains will still give you an excellent idea of life during the 4 centuries that the Kings of Ayutthaya
ruled. You will also visit the nearby summer palace of the present modern day Chakri dynasty. After the
sightseeing, you will travel by coach for approximately 1 hour to join a cruise boat at Wat Chong- Lom Pier for a
leisurely boat ride (approximately 2 hours) back down the Chao Phraya River to River City Pier taking in all of the
splendid scenery and typical Thai water-borne life on the way.
