Day 1: Bangkok – Floating Market – River Kwai

Early morning drive to Damnern Saduak, site of Thailand’s most famous floating market. Here, old women and young ladies wearing their typical lampshade hats, paddle boats and trade with fruits, flowers, vegetables and cooked foods. Continue driving to Kanchanaburi to board the original “Death Railway”, built by prisoners of war during World War II. The train passes over dangerous looking wooden viaducts built along the mountainside. After lunch transfer by boat to the hotel situated on the banks of the River Kwai.

Day 2: River Kwai – Ayutthaya

Short boat cruise downriver and continue by bus to Kanchanaburi. En route visit Muang Singh, the remains of a 13th-century temple, the most western of the ancient Khmer Kingdom. Continue for a photo-stop at the famous “Bridge over the River Kwai” and a visit to the JEATH museum, an informal war museum built as a replica of the original prisoners’ accommodation. Afterwards cross Central Thailand’s fertile plains and enjoy a glimpse of local life style at a buffalo camp in Suphanburi. Continue to Ayutthaya for overnight. In the evening enjoy a leisurely dinner cruise on the Pasak River with the illuminated pagodas of ancient Ayutthaya as a backdrop. (B/L/D)

 

Day 3: Ayutthaya – Bangkok

In the morning visit the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya. Declared a Unesco World Heritage site today, Ayutthaya has been the capital of Siam for 400 years. Wealthy, god-like kings have built one of South East Asia’s most impressive and powerful kingdoms of its time. Today, ruined palaces and temples attest to the former glory of the once mighty capital Ayutthaya, which flourished with trade, art and religion until it was sacked by the Burmese army in 1767. After visiting the most famous temples, continue by long tail-boat down the Chao Phraya River to Bang Pa In, site of the former royal summer palace. Return to Bangkok by mid-afternoon. (B/L)
