Discover the historic treasures of Thailand. From the crumbling ruins of Ayutthaya to the grandiose summer palace of the kings, this bike trip takes you off the beaten path and onto the local trails through authentic Thailand.

Description

Cycle through the towering chedis amidst crumbling ruins in the ancient city of Ayutthaya. Situated just north of Bangkok, Ayutthaya was former capital of Siam and was inscribed into the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1991. That governance ended abruptly in 1767 when the city was sacked by Burmese invaders. Despite destruction, the ruins emanate the city's prior dominance, beauty, and rich history.

Guests are picked up at all major hotels in Bangkok and transferred north by a/c minivan to Ayutthaya . We visit many great examples of temples some more ruined than others dating from as early as the 14th century. From exploring the temples by foot and bike we then head out of this historic city to follow the back roads that follow the Chao Praya river to Bang Pa-In, where we will cross over the river where we will have lunch at a river side restaurant. After lunch we will visit the summer palace before the short transfer back to Bangkok.

This is a gentle 25 kilometer ride along country back roads and is suitable for anyone that can ride a bike. The roads are flat, quiet countryside trails pass by many local communities.

We ride as a group, with an experienced cycle guide setting a gentle pace. Stopping often to visit points of interest, we also take the opportunity to sample some of the local food. Our support vehicle follows close behind with plenty provisions. Our guides are knowledgeable on the local area and customs and explain the history, culture and local way-of-life each time we stop.
