Visit the former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya, situated approximately 75 kilometres north of Bangkok and which is one of those destinations you have to see. The mix of cultures in Ayutthaya began in the mid-16 th century when ships from Ayutthaya plied the Asian seas, trading with neighbouring countries. When the Dutch showed up in the 17 th century, Ayutthaya became a port city and trade routes were extended to China, Japan, Indonesia, Portugal, Holland and France and even up to the Scandinavian countries later. Although the ancient villages of foreign traders lining on the Chao Phraya riverbanks were abandoned when the city was sacked by Burmese troops in 1767, some remnants have survived and now showcase the city’s past glory. The tour will start at the Summer Palace of the late King Rama V, commonly known as “Bang Pa-In”. You will then continue to the magnificent ruins of early splendour that Ayutthaya is famous for all over the world. We will pass or visit all the most impressive ruins of this World Heritage Site. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant in Ayutthaya. We will eventually return to Bangkok by coach. Note: Kindly be aware that proper attire is required to enter the Summer Palace compounds
