AT102: Ayutthaya & Bang Pa In with Return River Cruise
Visit the extensive grounds and Place buildings at Bang Pa In, see many of the old temples at Ayutthaya then enjoy a sumptuous buffet meal on the boat while cruising back to Bangkok on the Chao Phraya River.
You will be picked up at your Bangkok hotel and commence the 1 hours drive north towards Bang Pa In and Ayutthaya. Our first top of the day will be at the old Royal Palace at Bang Pa In, here you can see many of the old palace buildings scattered over beautifully landscaped gardens, all situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Following Bang Pa In we will make the 15 minute drive to Ayutthaya historical Park, this area encompasses most of the old Royal city of Ayutthaya and you will be able to see many of the old temple remnants and Buddha images which remain over this extensive site. Following Ayutthaya we will drive to Nonthaburi where you will embark the waiting cruise boat. On board you will be served a sumptuous buffet meal which you will enjoy while the boat cruises slowly down the Chao Phraya River. After lunch take a comfy seat up on the deck and enjoy the passing rural and Bangkok suburban riverside scenery as the boat gently makes its way into central Bangkok. Afternoon tea and coffee will be served on board before the boat docks and the waiting bus will transfer you back to your Bangkok hotel.
