Ayutthaya Cruise (1day)M0011D
08:30 Pick up at hotel 09:30 Arrive Bang Pa-In Palace
Bang Pa-In Palace, the palace was used as a country residence by every Ayutthaya Monarch. There are many interesting architectures in the palace which are influenced from many countries including European countries and China.
Bang Pa-In Royal Palace , also known as the Summer Palace, is a palace complex formerly used by the Thai kings as a summer dwelling. The palace is located on the Chao Phraya River bank in Bang Pa-In district, Ayutthaya Province King Prasat Thong originally constructed the complex in 1632, and though it lay empty and overgrown throughout the late 18th and early 19th century, King Mongkut began to restore the site in the mid-1800s. Most of the present buildings were constructed between 1872 and 1889 by King Chulalongkorn.
The facilities include vast gardens and landscaping, Wehart Chamrunt (Heavenly Light), a Chinese-style royal palace and throne room; the Warophat Phiman (Excellent and Shining Heavenly Abode), a royal residence; Ho Withun Thasana (Sages' Lookout), a brightly-painted lookout tower; and the Aisawan Thiphya-Art (Divine Seat of Personal Freedom), a pavilion constructed in the middle of a pond. The palace remains largely open to visitors, as King Bhumibol Adulyadej and his family use it only rarely for banquets and special occasions.
Arrive Ayutthaya the world heritage city. Ancient Capital City of Thailand. Pay a respect to Wat Mahatad. Then transfer to Wat Phrasrisanphet and Wihan Phramongkhon Bophit.
This is the famous site with the Buddha’s head inside of a tree. It almost looks like the tree is giving birth to him. Locals like to say that the tree lifted it off the ground since it was so holy. Wat Mahatat is perhaps the most historically relevant ruin in Ayutthaya, however with the central prang collapsed it is hardly worth the 30 THB admission price. Most of the structure can be seen from the outside gate. There are some very unique chedis here, but the main highlight remains the Buddha’s head in the tree.
Wat Sri Sanphet
West of Wat Mahathat is a very pleasant park, with lakes and bridges. The path passes several smaller historical remains and provides fine distant perspectives of Wat Mahathat, shown in the photograph at the top of this page, and the Khmer style prang of Wat Ratburana, pictured in the section 'Getting Around'.
Three chedis in the temple grounds contain the ashes of three early kings of Ayutthaya from the second half of the fifteenth century; this line of massive monuments has become one of the most famous and evocative images of Ayutthaya and of historic Thailand.
Wat Phra Monkhol Bophit.
Wat Phra Monkhol Bophit is a single late Ayutthaya Wiharn built to house the 15th Century Phra Mongkol Bophit, a huge bronze Buddha statue, 9.5 meters accross the lap, and 12.45 meters high, not including the pedestal.
The present building was completely renovated in 1956, and is only just big enough to house the statue. Photgraphs around the inside of the wiharn show the delapidated state of the original Ayutthaya building prior to its restoration: the great black Buddha image stands in the center of the ruins, under an open sky. After the rebuilding of the wiharn the great bronze statue was entirely covered with gold leaf to give it its current splendor.
