An overnight cruise from Ayutthaya to Bangkok
The boat sets sail around 3 p.m. from the pier near Bang – Pa – In Palace, Ayutthaya. Now is the time to relax and enjoy watching the rural life along the “River of Kings”. You will stop for a visit at the small village of Baan Saladang, an aged-old Mon community which migrated from Burma to this area in the early 19th century. The villagers here have successfully maintained their traditional life style, customs and natural surroundings. You will also see a collection of well-preserved typical Thai houses in this charming village.
Soon after sunset, the MEKHALA will dock at Wat Kai Tia, a local Buddhist temple set in a tranquil village. An exquisite candlelit dinner of mouth-watering Thai delicacies awaits you on the deck. You will spend the night on board the boat in your air-conditioned cabin.
Today, we will leave the pier early for a visit to the morning market in Pathum Thani. You will observe the way of life of local people as they shop for food and fresh produce. Afterwards, you will enjoy a delicious breakfast on board. The boat will continue cruising down the river to Bangkok. You will be able to take in the sights, marveling at the magnificent Grand Palace and the Temple of Dawn along the way.
You will arrive in Bangkok in the late morning.
