What to expect

Before there was Thailand, there were Ayutthaya and Siam. These two kingdoms have left a wealth of ancient cities and palaces. And this excursion takes you to two of the most impressive – Bang Pa-In Royal Palace and Ayutthaya Historical Park. To top it off, you'll return to Bangkok on a river cruise.

First up is Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, a four-century old summer retreat for Thai kings. It's an eclectic mix of influences with Thai, Khmer, Chinese and 19th century European-style palaces and temples laid out on islets and the edges of an artificial lake.

Next, head to Ayutthaya Historical Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hemmed in by the Chao Phraya River, it was the capital until invaders destroyed it. Get the lowdown on ruins such as Wat Lokayasutharam – which has the largest reclining Buddha in the world – and Wat Mahathat, with its iconic Buddha's head devoured by fig tree roots. Then, on the riverboat back, you'll enjoy a buffet lunch and see top Bangkok sights from a new perspective.
