Central Thailand Tour - 3 Days

Central Thailand Tour

Our “Central Thailand tour” discovers the history that lives and breathes in central Thailand‘s misty valleys and jungle-fringed rivers. The region’s crowning glory is Ayuthaya, Siam’s former royal capital. The town is practically an open-air museum with dozens of breathtaking temple ruins covered by stone Buddhas. Khmer-style temples are also a draw in Lopburi, though the atmosphere is far less serene in Thailand’s ‘Monkey City’.

Heading west, Kanchanaburi’s museums chronicle the dark history of the Thailand–Burma Railway (aka the Death Railway). WWII memorials pay tribute to thousands of lost lives. The scenery gets wetter and wilder following Mae Nam Khwae Yai northwest. The river’s tributaries are hugged by sedate villages (and the occasional riverside resort). Skirt national parks such as the waterfall-kissed Erawan and Sai Yok.

Life dawdles at an even slower pace at Sangkhlaburi in the multi-ethnic northwest. Villages and national parks border Myanmar have a beguiling frontier feel. Our “Central Thailand tour” will take you to Kanchanaburi, home to the River Kwai beautiful waterfalls, and forgotten temples. The gorgeous small-town of Kanchanaburi and the history of an ancient royal capital – Ayutthaya of Thailand. With rural scenery that will make your trip become more special.

“Putting the customer at the heart of everything we do”

DAY 01: BANGKOK – KANCHANABURI

DAY 02: KANCHANABURI – AYUTTHAYA

DAY 03: AYUTTHAYA – BANGKOK

Day 1
BANGKOK – KANCHANABURI

Hidden in a street market across the river you discover a set of rusty train tracks. You could join the locals and their merchandise of chickens, vegetables, and goldfish in plastic bags to find out where they lead to. You will bump along the rails between the houses of local citizens who seem to live right on the tracks and stop at every station. The scenery becomes greener and the air smells like salt; you can reach the Gulf of Thailand and disembark right into one of the country’s biggest fish markets.
Enormous shrimp, bright red lobsters, tons of squid and big, big fish are actually caught in Burmese waters.

This is a delta area, crisscrossed by canals, highly fertile and full of coconut plantations and fruit orchards. Green and wet. By boat, we navigate narrow canals and enter the floating market of Damnoen Saduak, where old ladies sell noodle soup, pomelo, rambutan and other colorful fruit and of course souvenirs from their little wooden boats. You can take a moment to step behind the souvenirs stalls to discover wooden houses and bridges still lining the waterways from the past.

The dark side of history comes to life in the Museum and war-cemetery in Kanchanaburi on the River Kwai. A chance to learn about the hardships of the prisoners before walking across the notorious railway bridge is part of your program.

Enjoy a beautiful night under the countryside stars, after a day of fantastic impressions!

Day 2
KANCHANABURI – AYUTTHAYA

The second day is elephant-day. Elephants once roamed this part of Thailand, helping in the logging industries of this region. You can enjoy these giants up-close as they show you what they can learn and enjoy a jungle trekking on their broad back. One of the most favorite waterfalls for Thai people is the Erawan fall, with several tiers, one of which shaped like an elephant head.

Visitors can enjoy your picnic lunch in the coolness of the water and maybe take a dip!

Then it goes downriver and into the central plains full of sugar cane and corn, depending on the season. Don’t forget to try a freshly pressed juice on the way. You will arrive at the former royal capital of Ayutthaya at the end of the day. This generally is a day-trippers destination and there is a countryside-calm to dining on the riverbank after the coolness of the evening takes over from the heat of the day.

Meal: Light Picnic Lunch

Day 3
AYUTTHAYA – BANGKOK

Unesco declared the ruins of temples and surrounding structures a world heritage site. Wat Chai Wattanaram is particularly beautiful and was built in the same style as the famous temples in Angkor, Cambodia.

You will wander between much more recent palaces in Bang Pa In, an eclectic collection of royal homes in a manicured park on the bank of Chao Praya river.

Your tour will stop at your booked hotel in Bangkok, the airport or train station.
