Ancient & Hidden Ayutthaya by Bike
Ayutthaya was once a capital city and cosmopolitan destination with temples of gold, glittering palaces and powerful kings. Today, its countless temples and ruins offer a captivating glimpse into a glorious past. But modern day Ayutthaya also offers a story of its own, built around the slow pace of life and tasty local cuisine. Go by train from Bangkok, and explore Ayutthaya by bicycle with a guide who knows the ins and outs of the city and ruins. Hear stories of an ancient past, taste the mouth-watering delicacies, and make your own sweet Sai Mai (a local candyfloss pancake).
Explore Ayutthaya with a guide who knows the stories, the ruins and the city.

Travel Insurance (Compulsory)
We recommend wearing comfortable shoes such as sandals or sneakers. Since we are bicycling, we do not recommend flip-flop style sandals. As we will be visiting temples, modest attire must be worn to enter the premises.
Meet your guide at 7:15 at Chamberlain Hostel and prepare for your departure at 7:30. You'll travel by local bus to Bangkok Hua Lamphong Central Train Station and continue by local train to Ayutthaya. The train is your window to the world and your secret to getting a peek into the daily life as you travel along the railroad.
Once in Ayutthaya, explore the city by foot and by bicycle. Get introduced to and understand the ancient capital’s history after a visit to the Travel Center Ayutthaya. Then set out for the temples: Wat Mahathat with the Buddha head in the tree trunk, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, which was the holiest temple in the Ayutthaya period, and Wat Lokayasutharam with its impressive 37 meters long reclining Buddha.
We'll have lunch at a local restaurant and get familiar with the local cuisine and unique flavors. For dessert, you'll have the chance for a hands-on experience to make Roti Pag Pia, also known as Sai Mai and best described as a pancake rolled around candy floss. It’s an impressive art form refined over decades and with strong roots in Ayutthaya. It’s not easy, but with a bit of practice, you'll get the hang of it!
With stomachs full and imagination nurtured, venture back towards Bangkok by train and end either at Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong Central Train Station around 17:30 or head back from there to nearby Chamberlain Hostel.
