How to travel from Ayutthaya to Bangkok

Taking a minivan

Several different companies operate minivans on this route, which are modern vehicles with AC and comfortable seating. Shared minivans are the most affordable and the best option if you are a solo traveler. Bear in mind though, that if you have several big bags, you might be asked to purchase a separate seat.

Shared minivans run throughout the day so you can leave pretty much when you want. Private minivans are a better choice if you’re in a large group or a family. 


Taking a private car
