#1 – Once Upon a Time: The Largest City in the World
If we travel back in time, something that you will feel as you explore the ruins and temples of Ayutthaya, we will see that once upon a time, it was the largest city in the entire world. Not Thailand or Southeast… but in the planet. Truly amazing, and especially that you have the chance to visit it and discover all of its secrets.
Furthermore, visitors also referred to it as the most beautiful city in the world. All of this during the 1700 A.D, when it reached its peak: it became the capital of Thailand and was home to over one million people.
Even though those times are long gone, it is still possible to explore the remains of this once-great city. You are going to learn all about it, covering its rise and decline, followed by more-recent happenings like the sacking by the Burmese in 1767.
#2 – A Friendly and Nice Atmosphere:
Another reason why people speak wonders about Ayutthaya and this tour is that the local people are friendly and nice. This is very important for having a thoroughly satisfying experience, and you are going to experience it yourself.
The local people are friendly towards visitors, so you will often find them helping tourists with indications, directions or any other things they might need, for example recommendations on where to eat the best food in the city.
It is crucial to say this, because an attraction can be amazing, but if the atmosphere is hostile, then you will not enjoy your visit. However, you do not have to worry about it in Ayutthaya, because it is truly nice and friendly!
#3 – The Weather Is Hot: Take Care of Your Skin and Body
If you come from a land of ice and cold, then you will be happy to see the sun shining high in the sky… you will feel warm, but there is a downside: you need to take extra measures to protect your skin and body.
Wearing sunscreen is a must, because otherwise, the hard sun will damage your skin, especially in this kind of tour where you will be exploring many different places in the open.
Hydration is another important point to consider, because as you will be walking for many hours under the sun, you will need to drink water from time to time.
Even if you have done a “similar” tour before, expect this to be a totally different experience.
However, worry not, because we are going to let you know everything so you can enjoy this tour to the max!
