This truly unforgettable tour begins with a lovely hour-and-a-half scenic drive to the sight of historic Ayutthaya. Founded in 1350, it remained the kingdom's capital until 1767 when it was conquered and destroyed by the Burmese. Upon arrival, you'll proceed to the old city of Ayutthaya for a tour of its magnificent ruins, including the famous Phra Nakon Sri Ayutthaya Historical Park which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Although no longer in its former glorious state, it's easy to see how this captivating city was once the center of an empire that dominated Southeast Asia for over four hundred years. Following your morning tour, you'll be transferred by coach to a local restaurant where you will be treated to an Asian-themed lunch.

At the conclusion of lunch, it's on to the Elephant Camp for a once-in-a-lifetime ride through the historical center of Ayutthaya on the back of an elephant. You are sure to delight in the spectacular view from atop one of these gentle giants as you further explore the city's rich architectural heritage. Your afternoon also includes a visit to the beautiful Bang Pa-In Summer Palace, a popular summer retreat for Thai kings. This splendid palace which combines a variety of Thai, Chinese and Victorian styles is surrounded by a serene lake and lush green landscape. Sitting on an island in the middle of the lake is one of the most photographed buildings in the kingdom, an utterly charming and elegant Thai pavilion which serves as an excellent example of classic Thai architecture. Re-boarding your coach, sit back and relax as you make the return journey to the pier.

Please note: This tour consists of extensive walking, at times over uneven ground and is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Comfortable, flat-heeled, closed-toe walking shoes are recommended. The drive to and from Ayutthaya is approximately 3 hours. The actual tour duration may vary due to traffic conditions.
