Ayutthaya Overnight by Mekhala Cruise

Bangkok River Cruise Tours

What better way to experience Thailand’s picturesque riverside than on board an overnight cruise? Discover a treasure trove of architectural treasures of the two different eras – modern-day Rattanakosin and Ayutthaya of yesteryear – along the scenic Chao Phraya riverbanks as you luxuriate in the comforts of the tastefully decked out Mekhala Cruise – a boutique hotel that floats on water!

From Bangkok’s Grand Palace and Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) to Ayutthaya’s Bang Pa-In Palace and ancient temple ruins, this journey brings you a complete picture of Thailand’s pre- and post-colonial historical and architectural heritage. Enjoy a romantic candlelight dinner of mouthwatering Thai cuisine, then surround yourself in the idyllic atmosphere of the night. Next morning, awaken to the river sunrise and board a long-tail speedboat to the heart of Ayutthaya city.
