Visit one of Thailand’s most famous floating markets, together with the atmospheric ruins of the Ayutthaya Historical Site on this full day tour from Bangkok. Sample authentic Thai cuisine from colourful boat vendors along the canals and waterways of Damnoen Saduak – the original floating market of Bangkok. Then visit the temples, palaces and Buddha statues of what was considered one of the finest cities in the world at the former Siam capital of Ayutthaya.
After an early morning pickup from your Bangkok hotel, you will travel to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi province. This was one of the first floating markets to be discovered by tourists (and still one of the most popular) and you will have plenty of time to take an optional boat tour or just explore the diverse and colourful array of vendors on foot. Then for a complete change of scene, head to the spectacular ruins of the Ayutthaya Historical Park, protecting what remains of the former Siam capital. Explore its atmospheric temples, crumbling palaces and iconic Buddha statues on a guided tour while uncovering its rich history.
