Discover one of the most hectic and lively cities in South East Asia: Bangkok! Along with tall skyscrapers, bars, cafès, clubs and excellent restaurants, Thailand's capital cities offers majestic temples and spectacular Buddha statues.
During this Bangkok tour, you will be accommodated in four stars hotels for your comfort and you will also get a chance to explore the sorrounding areas, such as Ayutthaya, the cradle of Buddhism in Thailand.
Today you will visit all the main sights of this very populated and busy city. Start with the Royal Palace and then continue with the visit of the most important temples like the Wat Pho with the reclining Buddha or the Wat Traimith with the 5500 kg Golden Buddha and ﬁnish in Chinatown, the soul of this city. Dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya River.
The ruins of the ancient city form the so-called "Ayutthaya Historical Park", which is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. During the best years Ayutthaya was a metropolis with three royal palaces, 375 temples and 94 gates to the city, protected by 29 defensive towers. Later visit to an incredibly tall and suggestive Buddha statue and then the monkey town, Lopburi.
When we talk about the Bangkok markets, they are thought to be in the city, but no, they are quite out of Bangkok and it takes two hours to reach the area of interest. On the way back you will take a detour to visit the tallest stupa in Thailand, located in Nakohn Pathom, the cradle of Buddhism in Thailand, west of Bangkok and north of the markets, an unforgettable visit.
No activity is planned for today: feel free to explore the city at your own pace.
Breakfast included. Overnight in Bangkok (Hotel Modena by Fraser Bangkok).
