Enjoy a full day visiting Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam. The ruins of the old city now form the Ayutthaya Historical Park, an archaeological site that contains palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries, and statues. The Bang Pa-In Summer Palace is a mixture of Thai, Chinese and Gothic architecture.
Our English speaking guide will pick you up from Bangkok City area hotel lobby at 8 am and depart for Bang Pa-In Palace. A few miles down the Maenam Chao Phraya from Ayutthaya is the Bang Pa-In Summer Palace. The royal court first used the site as a summer retreat in the 17th century. Most of the buildings today date from the reign of King Rama V. The structures represent a variety of architectural styles, set in a large park around ponds and waterways.
