Explore the Cultural Heritage of Ayutthaya & Enjoy Superb Lunch Buffet by Grand Pearl Cruise


Ayutthaya, the world heritage ancient city, the Siamese Kingdom that existed from 1351 to 1767 and has been included in UNESCO list of World heritage since December 13, 1991.

Our first stop will be at Bang-Pa-In Summer Palace. The original Palace was built by King Prasat Thong of Ayutthaya in the first half of the 17th century. When Ayutthaya was invaded and destroyed by the Burmese in 1767, Bang Pa-In Palace was left abandoned for almost a century until it was rebuilt by King Mongkut (Rama IV) in the 1850's

We will then go to Ayutthaya Historical Park which was destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century. The ruins indicate that Ayutthaya was one of Southeast Asia's (and probably the world's) most prosperous cities in the 17th Century and beyond.

After that, you will then embark on the luxurious Grand Pearl Cruise for the return journey to Bangkok. Take a leisure cruise and enjoy a sumptuous lunch on the Grand Pearl Cruise Liner as you enjoy the fantastic view along the River of Kings.

A Recent Review of this tour

This is a great tour. Our tour guide was prompt, very knowledgeable and friendly. There were 6 adults and we fit comfortably in the clean and modern van. The driver was very careful and professional. The tour of the summer palace and Ayutthaya world heritage site was not only interesting but a great history lesson. The boat ride and buffet lunch was refreshing and a good way to relax after the tour. I highly recommend this tour and our tour guide Peachaya was perfect for this tour.
