What better way to escape the intense nature of Bangkok, than with a luxury 2 day cruise along the River of Kings to Ayuthaya. For centuries, The River of Kings has been the lifeblood of Thailand, carrying with it the history and culture of this proud nation. Flowing down from the fertile central plains for almost 400 kilometres, this birthplace of Thai civilization connects the ancient Siamese capital Ayuthaya with the modern capital Bangkok, where it remains an essential artery in the region's economic life.
The spectacular Grand Palace is without doubt Bangkok's most well known landmark, and your visit will not be complete without a visit to this site.
The Grand Palace was the home of the Thai King and the royal court for 150 years. It was also the seat of government administration. Visitors flock to this monument and are awestruck by the intricacy and beauty of its architecture and adornments. In days gone by, the Grand Palace complex housed the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. It remains the spiritual core of the Thai Kingdom. Although the Thai Kings ceased to call the Grand Palace their home around the turn of the twentieth century, the palace complex is still used to celebrate ceremonial and auspicious events. Among its many impressive buildings is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
