Just north of Bangkok lie the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya, once Siam’s most important ancient city. This relaxed 25km trail is suitable for just about any riding level, and combines a pleasant and scenic ride with Thailand’s most treasured ruins. Traversing the city walls, you will explore the grand beauty of crumbling Ayutthaya, and see the stunning Wat Phra Mahatat, with its famous Buddha relic entwined with tree roots.
Following a charming country trail parallel to the mighty Chao Phraya River, the ride weaves through back roads with quaint local villages and lovely country landscapes. Cross the river on the ferry and enjoy a waterside lunch, followed by temple exploration and a real highlight – Bang Pa In, the royal summer palace of former Thai kings.
