Day 1


In the morning you leave for the north. On your programme: Ayutthaya, the former capital of Siam. You visit the summer residence of the Chakri kings in Bangpa-in and explore the old capital and its three main temples: Wat Chai Wattanaram, Wat Phra Si San Phet and Wat Mahatat.

Relatively well-preserved ruins give you an excellent idea of the grandeur of yesteryear. After lunch you board a unique longtail boat ride on the canals of Ayutthaya and drift along picturesque places and beautiful temples. Keep your camera stand-by! In the late afternoon, you check in at your hotel.
