Highlights include The Temple of the Reclining Buddha, and the city’s largest flower markets overflow with rare orchids, lotuses, and vibrant marigolds.
- Temple of Golden Buddha: Behold—the biggest solid gold Buddha statue on earth. It tips the scales at more than 10,000 lbs.
- Smell the roses at Paklong Talat flower market, where vendors sell hundreds of fragrant roses, orchids, and lilies.
- Grand Palace: Day four brings you to the Grand Palace, with the option to tour the palace which once housed Thailand’s royal family; it was the inspiration for The King and I.
Days 5–6: River Kwai
At the legendary Bridge on the River Kwai, thousands of workers braved grueling conditions to build the Burma-Thailand railway. You’ll cross the bridge and get overhead views of the river.
- Kasae Cave Station: A statue of Buddha guards this cave, where POWs stayed as they built the Burma-Thailand railway.
- Optional excursion: Ride an elephant through the forest and travel the River Kwai aboard a bamboo raft.
Days 7–10: Ayutthaya, Pattaya, Return Home
On day six, you’ll visit Autthaya—a UNESCO World Heritage site that served as headquarters for the kingdom of Siam for hundreds of years, beginning in 1350. The Burmese army destroyed the city in 1767, but you can still see many of the ruins. Be sure to visit King Rama IV’s summer palace and Wat Phra Si Sanphet, which is reminiscent of Cambodia’s famous Angkor Wat. You’ll round out this leg of the trip with a visit to Pattaya Beach before trekking back to Bangkok for your return flight.
- Bang Pa-In Palace was once a summer hideaway for the royalty of Siam. The grounds are decorated with gilded thrones and shrubs that have been pruned to resemble rabbits and elephants.
