    The Three Kingdoms- a history lesson abroad

    Thailand has a lot to offer, especially a rich culture and history.

    Why not take your curiosity abroad and learn about the three kingdoms of Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Sukothai during an interesting trip by boat and car, visiting the most interesting sights of Central- Thailand.

    Start in Bangkok and visit the Grand Palace and some of the most important, ancient temples in the city. From here, take a car or a boat up to Ayutthaya, the second capital of the Kingdom of Siam. The number of giant ruins alone, speaks volumes about the former greatness of the ancient metropolis, which is said to have been home to more than a million people.

    Continue to Sukothai, deemed as the cradle of Thai- culture and the first capital of Siam. Also visit the Historical Park of sister- city Sri Stachanarai or the "Monkey Temples" of Lopburi and end with the crystal- hall of Wat Thasung at Uthai Thani.

    Informative, beautiful, majestic, spectacular and curious- you will get your diversified and entertaining lesson in Thai- history right here!

    Day 1              Arrival Bangkok                   (-/-/D)

    After the arrival at the airport, you will be transferred to your booked hotel. In the early evening, you are going to be picked up again and driven down to the Chaophraya River to enjoy a dinner-cruise on the "River of Kings". Delicious Thai- food accompanied by the city, gliding slowly by in it's nightly glory.

     **Loy Nava Dinner Cruise (Standard Menu)**

     Day 2              Bangkok                                (B/L/-)

    Take a halfday- tour to see some of the most interesting sights in Bangkok. The Grand Palace is still in use for official and royal ceremonies. On its ground you will also find the famous Wat Phra Keow with the most revered Buddha- statue in all of Thailand: the Emerald Buddha. Continue to Wat Po, deemed to be the oldest "university" in Thailand and home to the giant Rclining Buddha. Also on the program: the temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Trimitr) and the marble- temple (Wat Benjamabopitr).

    Day 3              Bangkok- Ayutthaya           (B/L/-)

    In the morning, you will be leaving Bangkok, heading towards Ayutthaya. The first stop will be at the former summer- palace of Bang Pha - In. This collection of pavilions and other buildings from all kinds of architectural and historical backgrounds offers a bunch of nice photo- opportunities. Continue to Ayutthaya, the second of the great Siamese capitals. The abundance of huge ruins in the Historical Park gives you an impression of the former glory of this early metropolis, which is said to have been home to 1 million citizens. It is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

    You will see the most important of the sights, before checking in for the night.

    Day 4              Ayutthaya- Lopburi- Sukothai (B/L/-)

    Sure: neither Lopburi nor Phitsanuloke were "kingdoms" at any time- but once you are passing through, it would be a shame not to visit some interesting sights. Lopburi is also known as "monkeytown" and you will soon find out why, when you see the hundreds of primates, roaming the streets and houses and "guarding" the temples. After lunch you will continue to Phitsanuloke and visit the local Wat Mahatat, which houses arguably one of the most beautiful Buddha- images in Thailand, before you continue to Sukothai for overnight.

    Day 5              Sukothai- Uthai Thani                                 (B/L/-)

    After breakfast you will visit the Historical Park of Sukothai, the first capital of Siam. Sukothai is seen as the cradle of Thai- culture with the local Wat Mahatat as the spiritual center. Also you will be visiting the Historical Park of the sister- city Sri Satchanarai, which offers a different atmosphere from Sukothai. After lunch- time, you will set course back south and visit one more "extraordinary" sight- the crystal hall of the temple Wat Thasung at Uthai Thani.

    Day 6              Utai Thani- Bangkok                                   (B/-/-)

    After breakfast you will return to Bangkok (airport or hotel).
