Ride through historical Ayutthaya on a fun and informative bike tour
You will see this during the Ayutthaya Bike Tour:
- Pom Phet (Diamond Fortress)
- “Roti Road”
- Chedi Phra Si Suriyothai
- Ayutthaya Historical park
- Wat Mahathat
- Wat Phra Sri Sanphet
- Chao Prom market
Your biking excursion begins with its first stop at Pom Phet or “Diamond Fortress”, one of the sixteen fortresses along the city walls. The route will continue through local neighborhoods, passing through the “Roti Road”. Here you will find dozens of vendors selling “Roti Sai Mai”, one of the most famous Thai desserts, a kind of cotton candy made from palm sugar wrapped in a round unleavened bread.
From here you will cycle through the quiet Somdet Phra Srinakarinda Park to Chedi Phra Si Suriyothai (a memorial for Thailand’s first historic heroine) to take some pictures. Then you will head along the river at a leisurely pace and see the daily life of the local people who live on the river banks. On the way to the UNESCO World Heritage Historical Park, you will stop at a local community where they make handicraft woven wind mobiles from palm leaves.
Once at the Historical Park, you will see the ruins of the old temples, stopping first at Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, the most important temple in the city. The next stop at Wat Mahathat is perhaps the most photogenic of all. Here you will find the Buddha’s head, which lies within the roots of a tree, an image that can be found on many post cards and travel books about Thailand.
From here you will continue to “Chao Phrom Market” where you will walk with your bike through the market, which has been in function since the city was the capital of Siam. After perusing the market, you will take a ferry back to cross the Pasak river, to end the tour at the meeting point. You will make regular stops for pictures along the way and you will be provided with drinking water/soft drink and a Thai snack.
