History & Culture
Meet up at hotel lobby (in Bangkok area)
Visit Wat Niwet Thammaprawat.
Located on a small island, the Buddhist temple was uniquely built in Gothic Revival style.
Then we'll go to Bang Pa-In Palace.
The summer palace was first constructed by King Prasat Thong in 1632 and expanded by later kings. You'll find stunning buildings in many architectural styles from Thai and Chinese to European.
Please be informed that you can stroll in the palace complex, but entering the buildings isn't allowed.
Move on to Wat Phanan Choeng.
The temple was built in 1324 even before Ayutthaya was founded! Admire the gigantic gilded Buddha image.
Grab local lunch.
Relax at Ayothaya Floating Market and walk around shopping for souvenirs.
Pay a visit to Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon.
The temple was first built by King U-Thong (Ayutthaya's first king) in 1357. Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon is very photogenic with enormous pagodas and rows of Buddha images.
Visit Wat Phra Si Sanphet.
The temple was once the royal palace built by King U-Thong. Later, the palace was exclusively used as the royal temple for religious and royal ceremonies. Don't miss its three iconic pagodas.
Head back to Bangkok. Get some rest on the ride back.
Drop off at the meeting point.

Must visit, inspirational!
Kittichai (nickname Boat) was absolutely fantastic, we had two young children with us and Boat had organised muffins and juices for the journey and even downloaded some cartoons for them (happy children do equal happy parents). Boats had a great knowledge of everywhere we went, interesting and informative but also great fun.
