Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Lokayasutharam)
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.

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet
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. It was the grandest and most beautiful temple in the capital and it served as a model for Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok.

Wat Mahathat
Wat Mahathat, “the temple of the Great Relic” was one of the most important temples in the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Located on the historical island the large monastery features a huge central prang, a very large principal viharn and ubosot and a great number of subsidiary chedis and viharns. The upper part of its once massive central prang has collapsed. Today only the base remains.

One of the temple’s most photographed objects is the head of a stone Buddha image entwined in the roots of a tree.

Amazing guide and local experience!
SamanthaC2535, 19-03-2020
We loved our day biking around Ayutthaya with our guide, Gott. He was extremely knowledgeable and kind and was always willing to make extra stops and breaks so we could rest from the heat. We were able to see some of the famous locations, such as the Buddha head in the tree, but we were also able to see many “non-touristy” places as well and get a better understanding of local life. The bike ride is strenuous in the heat, so make sure to drink a LOT of water, but it is well worth it!

We are a group of 4 people (two couples), aged 30-35, from Italy.
We LOVED this tour and sincerely recommend it to anyone who is interested in an out-of-ordinary tourist experience in Ayutthaya.
Special mention goes to Gott, our guide.
He's an absolute star: knowledgeable, passionate and extremely well organised! We appreciated his way of sharing information about Thailand and its culture, the temples and local habits.

Also the Thai food prepared with ingredients from the local villages was really top notch!

Book the tour and you won't regret it!

Andrea, Gabriella, Mario e Anna!

Just do it

Our tour guide Scott was very knowledgeable and engaging, giving us an insight into the history of Ayutthaya that we never would've had if we just walked around the sites ourselves. Biking was a great way to explore the city! Much faster than by foot while still able to take in the ruins. Highly recommend.
Great bike tour

I’ve done countless tours in SE Asia over the past couple of years and this one stands out because of my tour guide Sgott (I hope I wrote the name down correctly). I signed up the night before and showed up just before 10am to realize I would be the only one doing the tour today. Even better. Scott’s welcoming and charming, a good listener and a very knowledge guide who seemingly enjoyed to share his local knowledge. His fluency in English made the tour into educational conversation that helped me better understand the culture. Thank you very much for the wonderful day on wheels, Sgott!
Wonderful Trip in all aspects.

We went on a one day cycling trip with this company to Ayutthaya. The Wats and ruins are so much better seen from bikes. The guides English was perfect and he was very informative. I loved seeing the elephant farm. The lunch in the floating restaurant was fantastic. I highly recommend this trip.
An amazing day !

A great day with Scott as our guide! He was very knowledgeable and was able to fit in quite a lot for the amount of biking we did. I also appreciated that he generally kept us on quieter streets and helped us safely navigate the busier ones. This tour was such a nice break from the giant tour buses—highly recommend!
Amazing Tour & Guide!

Colours of Ayutthaya review
laurafQ1071IO, 23-11-2022
Thoroughly enjoyed the cycling tour of Ayutthaya it was a great way to see the temples as opposed to being bused around. The 10 minutes at each spot was perfect to spend at each of the temples. Andre was really knowledgeable about the history of the temples. I definitely wouldn’t have learnt as much had I gone by myself.

Thé lunch was also delicious- good to try different dishes that I otherwise wouldn’t have known about & to go somewhere where there were only locals/ Thai tourists.
