Day trip to Ayutthaya was a great day, all of us able to spend sometimes together. Trip to Ayutthaya, we are planning to have the train experienced in Thailand, unfortunately the train schedule doesn't seem suit us. So one of our TB advisor Thania, She suggested us to take a local tour with mini van, save time and cost. Thananya went up to the tour office and discussed with them for a better offer, in the end the tour agent charged us 550bhat(usd18) for a half day tour at Ayyuthaya. 

Arriving ayyuthaya, the first destination we went to was the Elephant camp. All the elephants are trained, and you're able to have the elephant ride at the Ayyuthaya, and also you're able to feed the Elephants too.

This elephant camp are too commercialized. It almost similar with the Tiger kingdom, they are trained to earn money some goes with the Elephant. After we had done with the Elephant camp, the first Temple we went at the Ayutthaya was the WatyaiChaimongkhol. Before we entered the the temple, Thananya suggested us to have our quick luck near by this temple, it just around the corner of the temple, it's very easily spotted when you arrived. The stall served some very delicious noodle and they have plenty of varieties too, you gotta try it, if you're in the temple, grab a quick lunch before you start for this temple walking, because it's takes lots of energy and under the super hot weather.

We are supposed to do 5 temples in ayyuthaya. Dued to the hot weather at Ayyuthaya, we just managed do 3 temples and also we don't have enough time to do it all, because we have a dinner reservation at the Bourbon street. Lucky we didn't do it all, else everyone will be badly burn hahaha! Hot weather doesn't stop the fun! We took plenty of group pictures under the sun. 

As we are done with our  posed for the group picture, we prepared and get back to Bangkok! Really miss the time, all of us able to spent time together, eventhough it's not a long trip, but all of us had great fun.
