Bang Pa In Palace

A summer palace designed for Thai monarchs during the 17th century, Bang Pa-In Palace has a charming collection of houses and pavilions.

There are a variety of Thai, Chinese, Italian & Victorian architectural styles surrounded by beautiful gardens as well as a lake with a magnificent sala in it.

Originally built by King Prasat Thong in 1632, Bang Pa-In Palace was abandoned after the sacking of Ayutthaya in 1767. The palace was partially restored by King Mongkut (Rama IV) in the 1850s and the restoration was completed by King Chulalongkorn (Rama V).

The gardens are wonderful and it's worth the stroll just to enjoy the scenery and the scents. There are plenty of trees which provide welcome relief from the heat of the morning sun & a brightly-painted lookout tower for those who are fit.

The beautiful pavilion of Phra Thinang Aisawan Thippa-At sitting in the middle of a lake has been designated as the archetype of the Thai pavilion or Sala Thai, a national symbol of Thailand. Built in the year 1876 it is the only Thai-style building in the palace.

Many consider this to be one of the finest buildings to be found anywhere in the Kingdom. The bronze statue standing in the middle represents King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) in the uniform of a Field Marshal and was erected by his son King Vajiravudh (Rama VI).

Ayutthaya Sacred City

Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya "The Sacred City of Ayutthaya" was founded in 1351 and reached its apex in the 16th century. It is an island embraced by three rivers, the Chao Phraya, Lopburi and Pa Sak.

In the Golden Age which lasted 417 years, Ayutthaya was the historic capital of Thailand.
The territory of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya extended far beyond present-day Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar. During the 17th century, foreign visitors, traders and diplomats alike, claimed Ayutthaya to be the most illustrious and glittering city that they had ever visited. That ended forever in 1767 when it was conquered by the Burmese and completely destroyed.

Nowadays, visitors to Ayutthaya, which is only 86 kilometers north of Bangkok, can marvel at its grandeur reflected through numerous magnificent structures and ruins concentrated in and around the city island. The temple compounds are still awe-inspiring even in disrepair and a visit here is memorable and a good beginning for those drawn to the relics of history.

The architecture of Ayutthaya is a fascinating mix of Khmer, or ancient Cambodian style, and early Sukhothai style.

Most importantly, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Historical Park, an extensive historical site in the heart of Ayutthaya city, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Why is a private tour a better choice?

With a private tour, you have the freedom to choose what you want to do and when you want to do it. There is much more room for flexibility and changes to your itinerary at every step of the way because you don't have to consider the needs of other travelers. The flexibility and freedom to make the most of your time is the reason why so many people choose to take a private tour rather than a group tour.
