If your trip to Ayutthaya is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is a little on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
If anyone asks why you're coming here, just show them a few pictures of Wat Phra Si Sanphet and Wat Ratchaburana. These fantastic attractions guarantee you'll have an awesome trip.
Close to the center, Chao Praya River is one spot you might like to consider adding to your to-do list. If you still have some room on that itinerary, Wat Yai Chaimongkon and Chai Watthanaram Temple will keep you busy too.
If you find yourself with a few more days to spare and you don't mind traveling 28 miles, take a look at Saraburi. This place boasts lots of things to keep you occupied. Soak up the sights starting with Adisorn Golf Course, Sam Lan Waterfall and Wat Phraphutthachai. Lop Buri is another wonderful option. It's 34 miles away and has a variety of awesome things to do. Phra Prang Sam Yod, King Narai National Museum and Wat Sao Thong Thong are only the start.
We've compiled the best ways to help you save on a rental car:
Rent a car and explore Ayutthaya your way. Want to soak up some nature? Pick up the keys to an SUV. This vehicle is perfect for those craving outdoor adventures. Just want to get from A to B and traveling with just a few bags? If you're not planning on doing a lot of driving, a fuel-efficient mini is a fantastic option.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes choosing the right car important. If you're planning an amazing road trip around Ayutthaya, a spacious SUV could be the perfect solution. If you'd like the cheapest possible price and plan on staying mostly in the city, an economy car is a clever pick. All you have to do is work out what suits you best, throw your bags in the back seat, and start clocking up those miles.
When driving in a new city, you should have a solid understanding of the rules and regulations. Here's what you'll need to know to hop behind the wheel in Ayutthaya with confidence:
The left-hand side of the road is where you'll be motoring along in Ayutthaya. The controls of your rental vehicle here, such as the steering wheel and gearshift, will be on the opposite side of what you're used to.
It can be. Circling the block looking for a parking spot is all part of the experience in Ayutthaya. Getting close to the popular sights is easier if you plan in advance.
Yes, there are. In Ayutthaya, speed limits range from 60 km/h to 120 km/h. Most built-up areas have a maximum speed limit of 60 km/h unless otherwise indicated.
In most cases, your chosen car rental company will charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may provide your contact details to the relevant local agency so they can send a fine straight to you.
It's prohibited to use your cell phone while driving a car in Ayutthaya, and you could also be fined for just handling a phone if you're in control of a vehicle. That said, the use of hands-free or Bluetooth functions is permitted, as long as your eyes remain on the road.
In Ayutthaya, it is against the law to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) higher than 0.05%. If you're in the mood for a few drinks, it's a good idea to leave your car behind.
Road rules in Ayutthaya permit drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic nearest to them without waiting for a green signal. Before making the maneuver, the car must come to a complete stop and the driver must ensure the lane is clear before moving on.
Subject to a small number of exceptions, seat belts must be worn in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya (province).
