Early morning I will meet you at your hotel in Bangkok. Together we'll drive to Bang Pa In summer palace. This palace has stunning Chinese temples, European style buildings and beautiful manicured gardens.

After this you will discover the ancient capital, Ayutthaya were we visit a local homebased sweets factory. After a delicious lunch we continue to Wat Mahatat (Wat means temple) to explore the ruins and century old Buddha statues.
From here we make a boat ride on the famous Chao Praya river to get a glimpse of the local communities on the banks of this majestic river.

Wat Chai Watanaram is a proud Khmer style temple that is still standing strong. This is the most beautiful temple of all so I will bring you here as well. During this historical day you will learn a lot about Thai history but also see and experience the typical Thai local culture and traditions that we are so proud of.

In the late afternoon I will bring you back to your hotel in Bangkok.
