Description

Stroll through the magnificent ruins of Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore historical temples and palaces along the shores of Chao Phraya River, including Bang Pa-In Royal Palace and the massive complex of Wat Maha Tat. A boat cruise down the Chao Phraya River returns you to Bangkok.

After hotel pickup in Bangkok, leave the busy city behind as you head toward the ancient city of Ayutthaya, situated along the shores of the Chao Phraya River. Travel back into Thailand's ancient past while you explore the UNESCO World Heritage site on foot with your guide. See the weather-worn ruins of pointed prang (towers containing relics) and former monasteries that provide a glimpse of Siam's former glory.

Visit Wat Maha Tat, a Buddhist temple compound that features headless Buddha statues and the remains of royal villas and religious buildings. A large Buddha head surrounded by the entangled roots of a living tree is a must-see sight. Follow your guide to the restored Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, where elaborate stupa, glittering gold-and-green temples, ornate buildings with columned porticos, and graceful marble statues captivate all who enter the complex.

At the river's edge, board a boat back to Bangkok and sit down for a lunch of Thai dishes. On arrival in the capital, conclude your tour with a comfortable ride back to your hotel.
