Ayutthaya by Grand Pearl Cruise

Bangkok River Cruise Tours

The palaces and temples of Ayutthaya never fail to inspire awe – and respect – among those who have stepped on their grounds. Seeing what’s remained of this ransacked city, one can’t help but imagine the splendour that once graced the skyline of this ancient capital. Today a UNESCO World Heritage City, Ayutthaya was a prosperous trade and political capital of Siam for over 400 years.

This tour by Grand Pearl Cruise introduces you to Ayutthaya’s rich historical and architectural heritage, starting at Bang Pa-In Summer Palace and temple ruins of the 14th and 16th centuries. You will then embark on the luxurious Grand Pearl cruise ship for the return journey to Bangkok. A superb lunch buffet and fascinating scenery along the two Chao Phraya riverbanks complete the memorable experience.
