Plan

Day 1: Bangkok Sightseeing

The best sights of Bangkok in this one day walking tour: Grand Palace, Temples and finish in Chinatown, one of the largest Chinatowns in the world. It was founded in 1782 and served as the home of the mainly Teochew immigrant Chinese population, who soon became the city’s dominant ethnic group. The streets are filled with colourful markets, lanes crammed with tiny shops, traditional drug stores and many temples making this the perfect place to wander around and explore.

Day 2: Ayutthaya and Lopburi

Visit the ruins of the ancient city which form now the ”Ayutthaya Historical Park”, recognised by UNESCO. Lopburi, 70 km from Ayutthaya, a very picturesque place worth going. It is known as the city of Monkeys, about 2000, … and they are everywhere. You’ll visit Prang Sam Yot, the city’s most famous temple, and the San Phra Kan. Monkeys aside, Lopburi is a lively and pleasant, culturally interesting town, and one of the oldest cities in Thailand.

Day 4: Erawan Waterfall and Elephant Haven

A special waterfall will be the attraction today. A pleasant one hour walk to the top of this 7 tier waterfall with natural swimming pools. Before returning back to Bangkok we stop at Elephant Haven, a sanctuary and rescue center for elephants. Here you have the opportunity of meeting and getting to know the elephants whilst feeding them, walk to the forest with the elephants, watch them playing in a mud pit, bathe them in the river and learn all about them. A great experience.
