Ayutthaya Tour Code S-27
- 08:00 hrs. Meet your guide in the hotel lobby and depart for Ayutthaya, the old capital located 80 km north of Bangkok.
Ayutthaya had thrived for over 400 years before the Burmese invasion in 1767. After the war, the capital was ruthlessly destroyed and left in ruins. In 1991, a vast stretch of the old city remains known as Ayutthaya Historical Sites was declared a UNESCO world heritage site. During this trip, you will visit 1 summer palace and 3 famous temples.
Bang Pa-in Royal Summer Palace built on the bank of the Chao Phraya River in the 17th century features the classic architectural style of Thai, Chinese and European. The palace compound is very photogenic and always popular among tourists. Amid the peaceful landscaped garden and surrounding water are Western Neo-classic style buildings, a Chinese style mansion, an exquisite Thai style pavilion situated in the middle of the pond, an observatory, and many gazebos. The interior of the palace is luxuriously ornate and some part of it is open to visitors.
- 12:00 hrs. Lunch at a restaurant.
- 13:30 hrs. Visit one of the most important and well-known Ayutthaya temples, Wat Phra Si Sanphet. The monastery is located in the ancient Grand Palace compound, consisting mainly of the remains.
