After breakfast, our guide and driver will meet you in the hotel lobby. Our first destination is Wat Traimit Withayaram Worawihan, home to a massive golden Buddha statue made from 5.5 tons of pure gold. We then proceed to Wat Pho, Bangkok’s oldest temple, renowned for the magnificent giant reclining Buddha and as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage.

A short 5-minute walk north brings us to one of Bangkok’s most iconic landmarks, the Grand Palace. This historic palace and temple complex, formerly the residence of the Thai royal family, now welcomes visitors from around the globe. Within its grounds is Wat Phra Kaew, housing the exquisite Emerald Buddha carved from a single piece of jade.

In the afternoon, experience a different facet of Bangkok with a cruise along the Chao Phraya River, the city’s ‘River of Kings’. Leaving behind the bustling streets and temples, our cruise navigates the intertwining canals, unveiling the serene natural beauty amidst the city’s vibrancy.

On this full-day tour, you will journey outside of Bangkok to explore the former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya. You will have the option to explore Thailand’s ancient former capital by boat and return by coach, or vice versa. Located 86 kilometers north of Bangkok, Ayutthaya was the heart of Thailand from 1350 to 1767. Once a bustling international commercial hub, it now hosts only the ruins of this once-glorious city, following its invasion by the Burmese in 1767.

Midway through the day, we will pause for a lunch break at a local Thai restaurant, where you will have the opportunity to savor authentic Thai cuisine and experience the true flavors of the region.

After lunch, we will continue our exploration. The magnificent ruins of the palace and temples are quite breathtaking, with many still remarkably intact. Through these ruins, you will catch a glimpse of the former splendor of this ancient capital. You will visit all the most impressive ruins of this World Heritage Site, including the Summer Palace of the late King Rama V, commonly known as “Bang Pa-In”. This journey will take you back in time to what was once known as Siam. You will be transferred back to your hotel in Bangkok in the late evening.

The magnificent Wat Phra That Doi Suthep sits atop Doi Suthep Mountain and is over 600 years old, making it the holiest temple in Northern Thailand and home to the country’s most sacred stupas. The view from the mountaintop offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the city.

Continuing, our guide will lead you to the ancient Wat Jed Yod and Wat Suan Dok, each temple showcasing its unique historical and architectural significance. After enjoying a local lunch, we will head back to the hotel in Chiang Mai, stopping along the way at the Sankampang outlets, famous for their fine handicrafts and as a key production center for Thai silk.

Free Time Suggestions: We’ve reserved the rest of the day for you to discover Chiang Mai’s charm at your leisure.
