Visit the long-lost kingdom of Ayutthaya, the historic capital of ancient-day Thailand.
Around 8 am, meet your English-speaking guide to take the road to Ayutthaya.
An hour and a half away from Bangkok, Ayutthaya was in the 14th century the former Siamese capital. Sadly, it was destroyed in the 18th century by the Burmese armies, although the site is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beautiful remaining architectural sites.
On your way, stop at the Royal Summer Palace “Bang Pra Inn’ before proceeding to the main historical site.
Established on an artificial island, you’ll discover many priceless relics of the ancient kingdom of Ayutthaya. Your guide will lead you through the ruins, explaining the stories behind each archaeological treasure. Following this order, you’ll stop at Wat Phra Si Sanphet and Wat Mongkhon Bophit; hosting one of the largest bronze Buddha in the country, and Wat Chai Watthanaram; one of the most photographed sites of Ayutthaya thanks to its imposing 35 m high central “prang” of Khmer style. Also, you’ll get to admire Wat Mahathat; a sandstone head of the Buddha mysteriously entangled in the roots of a tree in a romantic-mystic embrace.
Finally, you’ll visit the great Wat Yaï Chaïmongkol, built-in 1357 by King U Thong, the founder of the city. It houses an impressive collection of Buddhas, lined up at the entry of the temple and carved on the stones.
After this marveling tour, eat and enjoy some free time on-site before driving back to Bangkok in the middle of the afternoon.

Originally, Thais would have come from southern China (Yunnan province) from the 16th century. However, the Thai language is not related to Chinese. It belongs to the Tai group of the so-called Kam-tai branch of the Tai-kadai language family. While the official language spoken by at least 85% of the population is Thai, linguists count more than 60 languages in Thailand. Thai or Thai is close to the two Lao dialects spoken in Laos (the most important of which is Lao Soung before Lao Soum), The second mother tongue is Chinese, a language present in two dialects (between 1 and 2 million speakers), including Hakka, with about 70,000 speakers. English is the second administrative and commercial language, and is spoken in the second language by 3,500,000 actual or partial speakers.

On your way, you will often have the opportunity to meet local people. Wherever you are, be discreet and humble. The multiplicity of cultures and traditions means that certain attitudes are perceived differently in different countries. To avoid being disrespectful, take the time to understand the people you meet, take the time to make connections. There too, listen to the advice of your guide!
He knows better than anyone the behaviors to avoid or adopt. For example, if you want to take a picture of someone, always ask them for permission. The best way for acceptance is to have established a prior contact. Similarly, do not distribute gifts at all … This often encourages children to beg, to avoid this kind of drift, it is better to refer to the local structures competent (donate to school, hospital, village chief etc.). Finally, be careful not to wear too light clothing (short shorts, cleavage …) and avoid exuberant behavior
