SUKHOTHAI – UTHAI THANI – AYUTTHAYA (430km – 5 hrs)

Today’s route from Sukhothai via Uthai Thani to Ayutthaya mirrors the southward expansion of Siam, following the kingdom’s historical development. Upon arrival at Ayutthaya, a former capital of Siam, head to Ayutthaya Historical Park and visit the temple of Wat Phra Si Sanphet and the adjacent Viharn Phra Mongkol Bophit to contemplate the golden Buddha. Continue to the eerily enchanting ruins of Wat Phra Mahathat, with its famous statue of Buddha devoured by tree roots. Such a heavenly heritage ensemble has earned this historical park the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lunch included. Accommodation: Overnight in Ayutthaya on half board basis
AYUTTHAYA – KANCHANABURI (190km – 2 hrs)
Drive through pastoral landscapes, after breakfast, virtually untouched by the passage of time before arriving at Kanchanaburi, a quiet town at the confluence of the rivers Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai. It is renowned for the beauty of its natural surroundings and abundant wildlife but it also holds an unwanted place in history as the location of the notorious World War II ‘Death Railway Bridge’. Visit the war cemetery, the final resting place of thousands of soldiers, and the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre, to learn about the conditions in which Allied POWs and Thai slave labourers worked to build a military supply railway. After lunch, spend the afternoon at your leisure. Lunch included. Accommodation: Overnight in Kanchanaburi on half board basis

Continue to Damnoen Saduak, which is famed for its vibrant and colourful floating markets. Breathe in the fragrances of the East as dozens of boats glide along, selling fresh fruit and vegetables as well as tasty local delicacies. The buzz of the noise and the bustle of activity are quintessential Thai experiences. Continue to Bangkok for drop-off at your hotel. Lunch included.
