Steps of the tour
Day 1 : Rent a Scooter Bangkok
Rent a Scooter Bangkok
The starting point will be at the “Rent a Scooter Bangkok” office where we will welcome and offer the participants coffee, introduce them to our tour guides, and provide motorcycle riding tips. We will go through the condition of the roads, the motorbike functions, safety equipment, and other important information regarding the motorcycle tour. It is crucial to have clear pictures of what the entire trip will look like. So, we ask everyone to arrive on time. We leave the busy city of Bangkok together and ride as a team.
From Rent a Scooter Bangkok office to Nakhon Sawan, it will take about 1hr. 20 minutes which is about 82.6 km. We will take a 60 min break at this location to see the wonderful tourist attraction. There is no entree fee to pay.
Historic City of Ayutthaya and Krungsri Market
Ayutthaya was once the second capital of the Siamese Kingdom. Founded in 1350, it was at that time the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan urban area, built on an island around three rivers. It was partially destroyed in 1767 by the Burmese army but the main reliquary towers and the gigantic monasteries remain today, so that we can admire them!
The Krungsri Market is just 3 minutes away from the monasteries. It is truly a fantastic and beautiful place. There are many street food vendors to get some local dishes and have a bite to eat. Just relax and enjoy a beautiful view of the rivers, but don’t forget to buy some souvenirs or maybe clothes!
From Ayutthaya to Phra Narai Ratchanivet, it will take 1hr. 6min and about 68.2 km ride, it’s not far at all. The team will spend 40 min there to visit the wonderful Palace of King Narai the Great. The entry fee is 150 THB per person.

This is something not to miss. The Palace was built by King Narai the Great who ruled Ayutthaya from 1656 to 1688.

Now the Palace is both a place to visit and a museum where you can admire a collection of ancient Thai artifacts.
Ban Chao Wichayen
Located just two minutes away from the Palace, Ban Wichayen was again built by King Narai in European style, something quite uncommon here! It was used as a foreign envoy’s residence. A quite out-of-this-world place that you should not miss. The entry fee is 50 THB per person.
Pra Prang Sam Yod
This is quite an iconic temple. It has always been an important location in Thailand around the royal cult with its gigantic statue of Jayavarman, king of the Khmer Empire. With its three towers and typical Khmer architecture, it’s not only a jewel of Thailand but of the whole Southeast Asia region. But beware of the monkeys out there, they’re cute but quite mischievous! The entry fee is 30 THB per person.
We will again ride a bit from the temple to Lopburi (The Melon Café). It will take 10min and about 6 km ride. The team will spend 30 min there to dine in the Melon Café.
