Overview
Lots of visitors to Thailand are happy to spend most or all of their holiday time relaxing at one of the many beautiful beach resorts that have made the country so popular. But there is so much to see and do at this exotic destination and this short trip to the famous Bridge over the River Kwai, and the fascinating jungle area around it, really gives you a genuine feel for life in south east Asia. And it can be combined easily with a stay in the capital city Bangkok.
Day 1
Bangkok to Uthai Thani
An early start to the day when you are picked up from your hotel in Bangkok and taken to visit Bang Pa In, the former Royal Summer Residence of King Rama V. Continue by road and stop at one of Ayuthaya’s most beautiful temples. Lunch is at a local restaurant and in the afternoon continue to Uthai Thani, a small town on the Sakaekrang River, rarely visited by foreign tourists where you see an impressive temple with crystal hall and golden shrine. Then drive to your resort hotel where there are lots of activities on offer before dinner.
