There are several restaurants inside the hotel for dinner, and not far from the hotel, the Terminal 21 is a big mall with a food court. Otherwise, if you’re full of energy, you can take a tuk-tuk to the Khaosan Road Night Market or the Asiatique The Riverfront for dinner.
Day 2 Bangkok downtown sightseeing
After breakfast, we will head for the famous Wat Pho, the oldest and largest temple in Thailand, where you will see the giant reclining Buddha statue with exquisite pearls and shells embedded in the soles of the Buddha’s feet. Next, follow the guide to take a short stroll to the neighboring Grand Palace, the best-preserved and largest royal palace in Thailand. During the tour of the magnificent temples and stupas in the palace, the guide will show you the Wat Phra Kaew housing the holy Emerald Buddha statue. 

In the afternoon, we will visit the prosperous Chinatown, one of the busiest commercial areas in Bangkok, with many shops selling gold wares and many Chinese restaurants. After stepping out of the old alleys, the guide will take you to the pier for a boat ride along the Khlong Bangkok Noi to experience the lively local life on the water.

Day 3 Bangkok – Samut Songkhram – Kanchaburi
In the morning, we will head west to Samut Songkhram to visit two distinctive markets and get a taste of real Thai life. The first is the Maeklong Railway Market, where the locals buy vegetables, fruits, cooked food, and other daily necessities. What makes it special is that the stalls stretch out next to the railway tracks. As you walk through the market, you will be amazed at how quickly the vendors pack up their goods as the train approaches. As soon as the train passes, the market returns to normal in the blink of an eye. It is quite a sight! Our second stop is the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market where we will offer you the chance to sail by boat along the narrow canal where you can see many local women sitting on their wooden boats selling vegetables and fruits.

In the afternoon, we will drive about 2 hours to Kanchanaburi with a short stop at Hua Hong Coffee on the way. Upon arrival in Kanchanaburi, we will first visit the Bridge over the River Kwai, a railway bridge built along the notorious ‘Death Railway’. You can take a leisurely stroll on the bridge while listening to the guide’s introduction of its history. Later, after completing our final destination of the day, the Death Railway Museum and Research Center, the guide will escort you to a local hotel to check in.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch
Accommodation: U Inchantree
Day 4 Kanchanaburi – Ayutthaya
Today we will continue our exploration of Kanchanaburi’s war history. First, the guide will take you to the Hellfire Pass, the most difficult section of the Death Railway. This is a place of sad memories. You can follow the guide to go through the hiking trail, where many visitors leave flowers and flags in memory of the prisoners of war and laborers who were forced to build the railway and lost their lives here during World War II. There is also a museum that displays records and stories told by the survivors.

Next, we will relax a little and head to the Erawan National Park, a fascinating natural wonder with cascading waterfalls and scenic hiking paths. Afterwards, we will continue our journey by private car for about 3.5 hours to another charming destination, Ayutthaya. Upon arrival, our guide will help you check into a premium hotel.

Day 5 Ayutthaya – Bangkok
Ayutthaya is home to many famous Buddhist temples and ruins, which constitute a World Heritage site. Today’s adventure will start with the famous Wat Phra Si Sanphet, a temple that used to be on par with the Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. Unfortunately most buildings here were destroyed by wars. Now there are only three stupas which hold the remains of a king and his two sons.

Next, we will head for the Wihan Phra Mongkhon Bophit, which enshrines a 55-meter-tall (180-foot-tall) bronze sitting Buddha. Then we'll move on to the Wat Mahathat, where you can see the famous big Buddha head being entwined by the roots of an old banyan tree. Our last stop in Ayutthaya is the Bang Pa-In Palace, which used to be the summer retreat for the royal family in the Ayutthaya Period. Late in the afternoon, we will drive back to Bangkok and the guide will assist you to check into the hotel.
