More Information

Enjoy your full day by exploring Ayutthaya, the second capital of Thailand. Ayutthaya is listed as the world heritage site recognized by UNESCO in 1991. 

A lot of temples were built in the Ayutthaya period over 600-700 years but they were burned down together with the fall of Ayutthaya Kingdom in 1767.

About 99% of the temples in Ayutthaya were destroyed but the beauty of Thai architecture still remains and waits for you to explore. Ayutthaya is also famous for its boat noodles and Thai cotton candy (Roti Saimai). Don’t miss them!

  1. Private and personal visit to Ayuttaya!
    (4 months ago)
    Thank you to Som at Nok & Friends for arranging a wonderful visit for us to Ayuttaya. Not only did they accommodate adding two of our friends onto the tour last minute, Som also managed to fit in a stop that we requested at the Sala Ayuttaya rooftop bar for a refreshing afternoon drink before continuing on our temple tour. It is Som’s attention to detail, sharing of relevant information about the sights and her flexibility with our schedule that gave us a trip that felt personalized and very enjoyable.

  5. Best choice for Ayutthaya!
    (5 months ago)
    A true 5-star day trip to Ayutthaya, with the excellent company and guidance of Nok-Nok! Very good and friendly communication, with a special concern in ensuring our understanding of the historical and cultural framework of the visited sites. The choice of places was wonderful and provided a glimpse of Ayutthaya's glorious past and misfortune. Knew the best spots for beautiful photos of our family. The trip from and to our hotel in Bangkok was very pleasant and comfortable. Highly recommendable!

    Nok our tour guide was excellent- she was very knowledgeable with the Thai history and culture. .. She and our driver, Boon was prompt at picking us at our hotel .. They had cold bottle waters available for us to drink throughout our tour. Nok knew where to pose for pictures and she was gracious to take mostly all of our group pictures for us!! The tour was done at our pace, never rushed .. I would definitely rebook with them and refer my friends to call them when traveling in Thailand!! Thank You Nok and Boon! We enjoyed our time with you!

  7. Highly recommended!

    Nok is the greatest guide you’ll find! She speaks English fluently, arranges a very comfortable car including wifi and sets up great tours. We did the Ayutthaya tour with Nok and we did visit a lot of various ancient sites, temples, royal house and a market, it was the perfect mix. Thanks to her we learned and understand a lot about the history, the culture and daily life of Thailand. She is so nice and sweet and makes you feel welcome. You can ask her everything and she’ll provide you with an answer directly or she’ll do everything to search for an answer. Nok arranged also our lunch and took our food restrictions very serious. She’s worth every penny!
