    hello everybody!
    my friend and i will be visiting bangkok/ayutthaya from aug 30 to Sept 3

    we will be staying in westbanglumphoo area
    our itenerary so far:

    day 1
    am- grand palace, temples,
    pm-rest till 4pm khaosan rd and pra arthit

    day 2
    am: ayutthaya elephant camp
    evening: night tour ayuthaya ruins
    day 3

    do you think this is feasible?
    also is there any way to get to ayutthaya from banglumphoo or khaosan rd without signing up for a tour? do you suggest we take the train or the van in victory monument? (anybody knows how much this would cost? i'm worried about how to get to the train station or v monument from our guesthouse. the owners said there is a bus stop in front of the guesthouse but im not sure if this bus would pass by vmonument or the train station. the guest house is called thamna hometaurant and it's located in Samsen rd between soi 3 and 5)


    i wuld appreciate any help we can get.
    thanks! :)

    It looks like you have everything sorted out.

    Unless you are going to take a boat to Ayuthaya, there's absolutely no reason to sign up for a tour. There are dozens of buses going there each day from Morchit, Bangkok's Northern Bus Terminal. But whenever I go, I take the train. You don't have to deal with traffic and it's very cheap.

    You can get to the train station, or the bus station, by taxi. It's very inexpensive. From Samsen Soi 3 or 5 you'll be paying around 100B to get to the train station, and about 120B to get to Morchit. About $3 or $4.

    Just so you know, Victory Monument is very close to where your guest house is. So is the water taxi, buses, and most of Bangkok's main temples. Definitely walking distance to all of them.

    Hi Bembot,

    Yes, I knew that ... this is why I chose it as a username.

    Have fun in Thailand.
