Top Places To Visit 2 Spots
Bang Pa-In Palace Ban Len Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Thailand
The illustrious and grand Bang, Pain Royal Palace is the summer residence of the Siamese royalty, located 60km north of Bangkok near Ayutthaya. This Summer Palace encircles a park with many iconic structures, that can be seen from your rented electric cart. While the property is owned by the royal family, Phra Thinang What Chamrun is the only building open for tourist visitation. It's a palace and throne room, built in the traditional Chinese-style, with grand ornamental tiles, elaborate ebony furnishings, gold, silver and porcelain intricate fretwork and a red lacquer interior. One of the highlights is a delicate, artistically carved camel bone dragon. Along side this is the tower used by royal parties as an observatory to view the heavens or surrounding countryside, called Ho Withun Thasana, or Sages Lookout. And finally we'll come to an archetypal Thai pavilion set in the middle of the ornamental pond called the Aisawan Thiphya, or the iconic Divine Seat of Personal Freedom, or 'floating' pavilion, known to have been the favorite afternoon spot for young Royals, and an inspiration to their epic poetry. Opening Hours: 8.30 a.m. To 4.30 p.m. Tickets sold until 3.30 p.m.
Ayutthaya Historical Park Pratuchai Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Thailand
World Heritage: Ayutthaya (2 days and many rolls of film) On your way back down from the north, swing past this World Heritage Site. Once Thailands capital city in the 14th – 18th Century, it was burnt and pillaged by the Burmese about 400 years ago. You can wander the ruins and climb the temples that still remain today, and take in the morbid beheaded Buddha statues. Witness the Head of Buddha which is enveloped by twists of tree roots, but be sure to hunch over and not stand higher than its height as a sign of respect. Afterwards, pop into the museum or eat your way through the food market. Personally, I was in rapture when I happened upon the cute and kitsch clothes/accessories market by the Ayutthaya Hotel!
