Bangkok for 3.5 days with Kids: Ayutthaya day trip or stick to Bangkok?

Jump to last reply

We are going to be in Bangkok (first time for all of us in Thailand) with our 3 kids (11, 11, 8), from Dec 24-27, and trying to decide if taking them to Ayutthaya for the day is worth it. They are adventurous kids and good travelers, and we aren't going to Angkor Wat so am thinking this would be a worthwhile day-trip for us. Want to make sure we still have time to hit highlights in Bangkok (Grand Palace, Wat Po, Chao Praya, floating markets, etc).
Thus, my 3 questions:
1) Is Ayutthaya worth a day trip? If so, any specific tour guides people recommend for a family?
2) Any must-sees in Bangkok with kids those ages that I might not know about? Don't want to do things they can do anywhere (amusement parks, etc), but want them to have a good feel for a bustling Asian city, and more specifically, a sense of Thai culture.
3) Will sights be open on Christmas Day? I realize that Christmas isn't a big holiday there, but want to make sure we are planning for any closures, etc.
Thanks!
