Visit the former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya, situated approximately 75 kilometres north of Bangkok. The mixing of cultures in Ayutthaya began in the mid-16th century when ships from Ayutthaya plied the Asian seas, trading with neighbouring countries. Although the ancient villages of foreign traders lining the Chao Phraya riverbanks were abandoned, some remnants have survived to showcase the cities past glory. Your tour starts at the Summer Palace of the late King Rama V, commonly known as “Bang Pa-In”. You continue to the magnificent ruins of early splendour that Ayutthaya is most known for. We will pass or visit all the most impressive ruins of this World Heritage Site. We will return to Bangkok on a cruise down the Chao Phraya River on a comfortable, air-conditioned cruise ship, while enjoying a sumptuous buffet lunch on board.
