Day 1 :
07:00 hrs Pick up from various hotel in Bangkok.
Depart Bangkok by air-conditioned coach to Ayutthaya from the River City Shopping Complex. Our journey takes you past lush green paddy fields and areas of industrial expansion. Upon arrival, you will come face to face with bygone glories and grandeur of our former capital. Despite the ravages of time and human destruction, the ruins of the palaces, temples and pagodas still offer a glimpse of their splendid past:
09:30 hrs Visit Bang Pa-In Summer Palace, was first used by the royal court as a summer retreat in the 17th century. However, the Palace was destroyed with the fall of Kingdom of Ayutthaya and was restored by King Rama IV in the mid-19th century. Most of the buildings that exist today date from the reign of King Rama V, who regularly spent his summers there. The structures represent a variety of architectural styles, set in a large park around ponds and waterways. The only royal residence open to the public is the Chiness-style Wehat Chamroon Palace, constructed entirely of materials imported from China. In addition, there is an Italian-style palace, a circular pavilion with steps leading down to a pool, the graceful Thai-style Aisawan Tippaya Asna Pavilion in the middle of a lake, and, across one of the waterways, a Buddhist chapel in the neo-Gothic style with stained-glass windows. Scattered around the extensive gardens are European statues as well as monuments ordered to be built by King Rama V in memory of members of his family, one of them a much-loved Queen who drowned in a boating accident.
10:30 hrs Continue to visit Wat Mahathat is located in front of the Grand Palace to the east, next to Pa Than Bridge. The temple is believed to be one of Ayutthaya’s oldest temples, possibly built by King Boromaraja I (1370-88). Its central prang, of which only the base remains, once rose to a height of 165 feet. Traces of the original stucco decorations can still be seen on some of the surrounding chedis. Across the river north of the palace to visit Wat Na Phra Men, the temple has been restored a number of times but still has a finely proportioned ubosot and viharn. The Ubosot design is very old in the typical Thai style. The most interesting object is the principal Buddha image, which is fully decorated in regal attire. The most interesting fact attributed to the image is that it escaped destruction when the Burmese were burning everything down. It was from the grounds of this temple that the Burmese King Chao Along Phaya decided to fire a cannon at the Grand Palace. Visit Wat Lokayasutharam, an abandoned temple and there is no absolute evidence that tells us which reign it was built in. None of the historical records or any chronicles have mentioned the period of construction. It is assumed that this temple was built in the Ayutthaya period. Perhaps it was abandoned after the fall of Ayutthaya to the invading Burmese in 2310 B.E. This temple houses a large Reclining Buddha Image 37 metres in length, built of bricks and plaster. Nearby there are some ruined posts of the Wihara. At the back, the ruins of Wihara, Ubosot and Prang still remain. Depart Wat Lokayasutharam for the River Sun Cruise at Wat Chong Lom Pier in Nontaburi Province.
12:30 hrs Buffet Lunch: Delicious meal served in the luxurious surrounds of a cruise boat.
Afternoon – Coffee Break – Witness the beauty of the Chao Phraya River and rural life along the two riverbanks from the cruise deck or from the cool, air-conditioned passenger cabin. Arriving in Bangkok, you will pass by the majestic Grand Palace and Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn).
15:30 hrs Arrive Bangkok, transfer back to your hotel.
