08:30 About BANG PA IN
A short 60-kilometer (40-mile) drive north of Bangkok along the banks of the Chaopraya River will take you to Bang Pa In, the summer palace of the kings of Thailand. The palace dates back to the seventeenth century, pre-dating the settlement of Bangkok as the capital, although it has fallen into disuse for a long time. All the buildings you will see date back to its reawakening by King Mongkut (Rama IV) in the nineteenth century. Today, the palace is used only rarely, and therefore mostly for state occasions rather than as a royal summer residence.
The building is very European in design. The buildings are arranged along an artificial ornamental pond. In what was formerly the public area of the palace, the lake is a long rectangular pool, lines with formal plantations and the strange madness. The most obvious of the ornaments is a modern copy of a Khmer style.
10:00 About AYUTTHAYA HISTORICAL PARK
Founded in around 1350, Ayutthaya became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai.
It flourished from the 14th to the 18th century, during which it became one of the largest and most cosmopolitan urban areas in the world and a center of diplomacy and global trade. Ayutthaya was strategically located on an island surrounded by three rivers that connected the city to the sea. This site was chosen because it was above the tide of the Gulf of Siam as it existed at that time, thus preventing the attack of the city by the maritime warships of other nations. The location also helped protect the city from seasonal floods.
The city was attacked and razed to the ground by the Burmese army in 1767 which set fire to the city and forced the inhabitants to leave the city. The city was never rebuilt in the same position and today is known as a vast archaeological site.
Lying on the island framed by three significant rivers: Chao Phraya, Lopburi and Pasak, the historical temples, palaces and remaining architecture of the ancient kingdom of Ayutthaya are one of Thailand's most precious historical sites. The area of 715 acres has been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1991 as it depicts the days of one of the greatest kingdoms in the history of IndoChina.
Strengths include Wat Phra Si Sanphet temples, Wat Mongkhon Bophit, Wat Phra Mahathat, all easily accessible on foot.
