Ayutthaya – The Affordable Day Trip From Bangkok!

When I was backpacking in Southeast Asia, I did not have an unlimited amount of money to spend. Thus, I was challenged to find affordable yet meaningful day trips. One of my favorite day trips that I have taken is from Bangkok, Thailand to Ayutthaya. In order to find your day trip to Ayutthaya, you simply need to take a walk down Khaosan Road in Bangkok. Khaosan Road has the majority of the backpacking hostels along with several local travel agencies. Within these travel agencies, you will find affordable tours to the surrounding areas of Bangkok. I was able to find my tour for under $30 including lunch!

While Bangkok has stunning temples to see, Ayutthaya gives the traveler a whole other perspective of Thailand. The tour that I took had several different stops around the park allowing you to maximize your day of sightseeing in Ayutthaya. One of our first stops was to visit the famous reclining Buddha. Afterwards, we were driven to the other famous sights of the park. Each sight was better than the next and I could not stop snapping photos. Some of my favorite photos are below.

For the traveler who has a limited amount of time to see Thailand, a day trip to Ayutthaya is a great way to maximize your time and see more temples. The sights that I saw in Ayutthaya are some of the most impressive temples and ruins that I have seen in the world. For the price that I paid, this day trip was worth every penny and I highly recommend it to fellow travelers!

Hello Readers! For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Jacquelyn Vadnais and it is a pleasure to meet you! Per the request of many friends, I am finally taking their advice and blogging about my international experiences. To give a background of myself, I just recently finished a JD/MBA from Suffolk University in Boston and have decided to pack my bags and emigrate to Latin America immediately!Many people have asked me why on earth I decided to move to Latin America after finishing such a prestigious program, however, once you get to know me you will see that I am truly world traveler at heart who gets such joy from experiencing fantastic cultures around the world. This is the reason that I have traveled to 50 countries (and counting!) in my life and have lived in 10 (and also counting!)I plan on giving my readers a first-hand guide on how to travel beyond the guidebook and truly experience where you are visiting and/or living for a time through the lens of a local. Based on my experiences with international culture, world heritage sites, delicious global cuisine, and diverse wines, I plan on sharing with you a piece of my unique adventures. These adventures have truly provided me with an invaluable world class education that is arguably equally as essential as the education that I received in the classroom.
