If you have your day off in Bangkok, why not use it to visit the former capital of Thailand?
Visiting Ayutthaya in a day tour you should start by visiting the Wat Phanan Choeng one of the oldest temples in Thailand.
Wat Phanan Choeng is famous for its enormous seated Buddha image, considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country. According to legend tears shed from the eyes of the image just before the destruction of Ayutthaya by the Burmese in 1767.
The temple is located on the banks of the Pa Sak river opposite the South East tip of the historical island.
The temple’s main attraction is its huge 19 meters tall Buddha image. The brick and mortar image named Phra Chao Phanan Choeng is seated in the posture of subduing Mara, otherwise known as Calling the Earth to witness.
