    Wat Lokaya Sutha is a massive temple ruin. It is aligned toward an east/west axis. The monastery has been heavily restored, including floor tiles and brick floors throughout. Most of the temple exists only at the basic foundation level. This includes some stubs of pillars and basic walls. At the eastern entrance are the remnants of three vihans. Behind these sermon halls is a large 30 meters high, Late Ayutthaya period, Khmer-style prang. This prang-tower has a hollow entrance on its eastern side. The remains of an ubsot can be seen behind the prang. Only the basic foundation layer has survived, but there are many sema stones and the detritus of Buddha images. A large bell tower stands on the southwestern corner of this ubosot.

    The highlight of this temple is its enormous reclining Buddha image (37 meters long and 8 meter high), which is located behind the ubosot.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    The Ayutthaya Kingdom, which existed from 1351 until 1767 was one of the largest and most prosperous empires of its time. The ruins of many impressive temples and palaces give an impression of the wealth of the ancient Kingdom.

    Wat Phra Si Sanphet (Thai: วัดพระศรีสรรเพชญ์; "Temple of the Holy, Splendid Omniscient") was the holiest temple on the site of the old Royal Palace in Thailand's ancient capital of Ayutthaya until the city was completely destroyed by the Burmese in 1767.

The upper part of its once massive central prang has collapsed. Today only the base remains.

    The city, alone, is breathtakingly beautiful and absolutely worth a visit. But hands down the best way to experience this city is with this tour. Our tour guide, Gott, was thoughtful, knowledgeable, personable, and made this experience one of the best in my 5-city tour of

    Khun Sprite brought us around Ayutthaya on a bike tour, and some of the cultural & religious spots were amazing. I particularly enjoyed the biking as it showed off really some local spots and livelihoods. The only small "down" would be the guide himself - he admitted that this

    Dear Villadecor Thank you for reviewing our tour. I fully agree with you that arranged transfers from Bangkok - Ayutthaya - Bangkok are expensive compared to public transportation. The reason why these prices are high easy to explain. The driver/car can't do anything else the rest of the day. The good thing about arranged transfers is of course it's very convenient being picked up and brought back to your hotel after the tour. Anyhow I'm very happy you enjoyed the ride and we hope to welcome you again on one of our other bicycle adventures in the Land of Smiles! Kind regards, Andre Breuer
