    Hi everybody,
    I would like to reach Ayutthaya from Bangkok by boat in the afternoon and to come back 2 days later by train (or the other way round).
    Does anyone have a website link where I can see prices/timetable to eventually book 1 way? or does anyone know if there is a "public" boat service which links Bangkok-Ayutthaya, in the way to avoid the classical trips organized by travel agencies (train + boat) to be more independent?
    Thanx in advance :)

    There are no public boats. There's a 'tourist boat cruise' type of thing from Ayutthaya to River City shopping center in Bangkok. When I checked around nine months ago it left Ayutthaya at noon, took 2.5 hours and cost 1,250 baht per person -- pretty steep if you ask me. I assume you can catch it both ways though I've never inquired about it in Bangkok.

    Otherwise it's train from Hualamphong (or Bang Sue or Don Muang), regular bus from Morchit or minibus from Victory Monument. Of those my preference would be bus from Morchit because it's cheap, comfortable and reliable. I tried the train once and it took like four hours (train was late - as usual - and it just takes longer b/c it's slow and starts from a lot further south in Bangkok). Minibus is fast but cramped.
