Ayutthaya activities tend to focus on culture and nature, as the best of them involve exploring the area’s gorgeous countryside surroundings. Our top Ayutthaya “Recommended Activity” can be found on the overview page, but for a couple more ideas, check out some more local honeymoon favs below!
In Thai culture, elephants are revered. They not only served as transportation, but also helped during wartimes. Guests who venture to Ayutthaya usually encounter them, whether passing them by in rivers or interacting with them at the Elephantstay. There are also spots in town where visitors can ride elephants through the countryside and view less visited temples and ruins along the way.
Bikes are a prime means for transportation and are available at most hotels and inns. It is the cheapest option and best if you’d like to explore the surrounding area on your own time, without worrying about tracking down a tuk tuk. Escape into the countryside and take back roads to paddy rice fields, experiencing a side of Ayutthaya you won’t get taking public transportation.
