Day Trip Guide: From Bangkok to Ayutthaya

Day Trip Guide: From Bangkok to Ayutthaya, Ayutthaya, Thailand (B)

As I hadn’t been to Ayutthaya the first time I visited Thailand, it was high time to tick it off my bucket list on my second visit. Luckily, Ayutthaya is only about 85 km (52 miles) from Bangkok, close enough for a day trip by train. While you can also take a bus, minivan, boat, car, or motorbike, I decided to take the train from Bangkok to Ayutthaya as it is fast, easy and quite comfortable! Here’s my guide how to get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok for a one-day tour.

Since I was going to Ayutthaya for a day trip only, I decided to buy my train tickets in advance to make sure I’d get back to Bangkok in time. All trains from Bangkok to other parts of Thailand leave from Hua Lamphong Station. There are regular trains to Ayutthaya making it easy to get back and forth. I bought my ticket for 8:30 AM to make sure I had enough time in Ayutthaya for the day. It takes less than 1.5 hours to get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok and train tickets start at 15 Baht ($0.44) for 3rd class tickets. ......
