Full Itinerary

  • Day 1:Bangkok Arrival – Half Day Three Main Temples

    Warmly welcome you on arrival at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Thailand. We will pick you up with a comfortable vehicle to the center of Bangkok to check-in your hotel, then take your time to have a rest after a long flight.
    As a Buddhist country, Thailand has thousands of temples, but the three featured in this tour are not to be missed!
    See the world’s largest solid gold statue and admire the exquisite Sukhothai style art of Wat Traimit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha. Then, pass through Chinatown to Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, where you can marvel at the largest Buddha statue in Bangkok. The temple is also known as the the birthplace of Thai massage and home to the Chedis of the Kings. Finally, explore Wat Benchamabophit, also known as the Marble Temple, perhaps the most beautiful of the three!

  • Day 2:Bangkok Full Day City Tour (B)

    Today, we will take the whole day to explore Bangkok – the city of golden temples in Thailand.
    The first destination is the Grand Palace. This huge architecture complex is over 2 sq. kilometers, including 3 main sites: Royal Palace, Royal Office and pagodas (Wat) built in 1770s. Nowadays, the Grand Palace is no longer home of Thailand Royal, most of national significant events takes place there.  Wat Phra Kaew is the most out-standing architecture in complex, built in 1785 when King Rama I moved the capital to Bangkok. The pagoda is famous not only for its beauty of unique Thailand Buddhism architecture but also for the sacred jade Buddha statue. 
    We will board on a boat to pay a visit along the Chao Phraya River, watching the life of local people close by. On route, we stop at Wat Arun, known as the most beautiful pagoda in Bangkok not only for its location on the Chao Phraya’s riverbank but also for the different architecture from other pagodas. The pagoda was decorated with glass pieces and Chinese ceramic, in a complicated style. 
    After having lunch, we visit the last destination of the day: Wat Traimit. This pagoda is famous for its unique and historic beauty, and also for the huge golden Buddha statue. Thai people believe that the statue represents for prosperity and purity, as well as strength and power. 
    Return to the hotel and you are free to explore Bangkok by night.

  • Day 3:Bangkok – Floating Market – Bangkok (B)

    Early in the morning, after having breakfast, we pay a visit to Meaklong Railway Market – a local market has grown up along the rail tracks of Thailand. When a train pulls in or out of the station, the sellers quickly clear their stalls, and set them up again when the train has passed.
    We continue our trip to explore a temple hidden within the roots of banyan tree – Wat Bang Kungwhich has been buried for years in thick foliage; step through trailing vines into its intimate shrine, and pay your respects to a gleaming golden Buddha statue. The temple reminds a war between Burmese and Siamese in the 18th century on a landscape that serves the battleground. Today, the temple and nearby area is preserved as a memorial to those heroic warriors of the past.
    We continue proceed to Tha Kha Floating Market (only open on Saturday and Sunday from 06:00AM – 02:00PM). It is still unspoiled by mass tourism so really a good choice for those who want to discover Thai floating market but do not like the crowd. Like other traditional floating markets, vendors here paddle wooden boats piled with fruits, vegetables and dishes cooked right in the boat. You also can hire a local to take you to a rowing boat tour, discovering the market channel and surrounding channels with some wooden houses and even a palm sugar factory. It is truly more authentic and truly than Damnoen Saduak floating market. 
    Back to Bangkok for overnight.

  • Day 4:Bangkok – Ayutthaya – Cycling in Historical Park (B)

    Today morning, we transfer to Ayutthaya. We will take a cycling in Ayutthaya Historical Park. The guide will take you to several temples of the complex and introduce you about the history of them.

    Wat Phra Sri Sanphet was the most important temple of Ayutthaya. The highlight of Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is 3 towers standing high together in Ceylonese style, has the same architecture with Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. 
    Continue to Wat Mahathat. It has the same fate with other temples in the park, it was almost completely destroyed under the Burmese army in 1767. Until 1956, the Thai Department of Fine Arts just restored it, they found many important treasures of objects made of gold, crystal, precious stones and rubies. Especially, they discovered the Buddha statue in 7-layer tower and the Buddha statue in the great tree trunk. 
    We can’t miss Wat Chai Wattanaram is western located from Bangkok city, across the Chao Phraya’s river bank. Built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong, the temple has many similarities in architecture with Angkor Wat in Cambodia: Molecular balance theory for the Meru mountain shrine centered, around is small towers. 
    Lastly, Vihara Phra Mongkhon Bophit is the pagoda in which the bronze Buddha statue in the attitude of subduing Mara is situated. This is one of the biggest Buddha statue in Thailand. It was considered to be built during the Ayuttaya period of King Srongta, who transferred the location from the east side to the west and has been the location since then. After that he ordered to build a dome on top.
    Around Ayutthaya, you can see small villages and rice paddy fields as off the beaten path.
