Take a journey along Thailand’s first railway line that was built in 1896 between Bangkok and the city of Bang Pa – In, site of the former Royal Summer Palace. After your guided tour around the Royal Summer Palace you will return to Ayutthaya by traditional long-tail boat.
At 08.00 Meet your ABT Journeys guide at Ayutthaya Railway station, board the train and depart for Bang Pa-In. On arrival at Bang Pa-In visit Wat Chumphon Nikayaram, an historic royal temple with seven beautiful Buddha images and two twelve-indented stupas dating back to the beginning of the late Ayutthaya period.
Move on to the Summer Palace and take a guided tour of this magnificent complex with one of our experienced English-speaking guides. Afterwards visit Wat Nivet, the only temple in Thailand built in the style of a Christian church. Afterwards take a long-tail boat back up the Chao Phraya River to Ayutthaya to complete a journey that leaves only a very small carbon footprint.
