An excursion to the former royal capital of Ayutthaya and the Bang Pa-In Summer Palace. Duration of tour: 7 hours 30 mins
You will visit the ruins of Ayutthaya and the restored Summer Palace. Phra Nakorn Sri Ayutthaya served as the Siamese capital from 1350-1767. It had been one of the most splendid cities of the Orient and was sacked by Burmese invaders and abandoned by the Siamese, who re-established themselves first at Thonburi and then at Bangkok. Then, you will visit the Historical Park to view the still impressive ruins of Wat Yai Chai Mongkol, Wat Panan Cheon and the distinctive triple chedis of Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. Also visit the Summer Palace at Bang Pa-In, about 10 km south of Ayutthaya. Some of the earlier kings used this area as a summer retreat, but the present buildings date mainly from the 19th century when the habit of residing there was revived. There are examples of European and Chinese architectural styles, as well as the Thai pavillion of Phra Thinang Aisawan Thippaya-art.
