Central Thailand Roundtrip

Central Thailand


5 Days / 4 Nights : Bangkok - Ayutthaya - Korat - Khao Yai  National Park - Bangkok

1. Day: Bangkok – Bang Pa-In – Ayutthaya
Early departure from your hotel in Bangkok to Bang Pa In, the former summer residence of the Royal Family. After a walk around the vast palace area you proceed to Ayutthaya, the old capital of Siam, founded in 1350 and destroyed by the Burmese army after a 1 year siege in 1767. Today Ayutthaya is a provincial capital with a large number of old temples, palaces and ruins which give an idea about the splendor of the former capital.
After lunch at a river side restaurant, you visit the ruins of the old royal temple Wat Phra Sri San Phet and other historical temples like Wat Yai Chai Mongkol. Dinner and overnight at a middle class hotel in Ayutthaya.

2. Day: Ayutthaya – Pimai - Korat
After breakfast at the hotel you will leave Ayutthaya in eastern direction. After a stop at the Muak Lek market and lunch at Pak Chong, you arrive Pimai in the afternoon, for the visit of the Khmer temple Prasart Hin Pimai, one of the most important Cambodian temples in today's North East Thailand, build during the late 12th century under the great ruler of  Angor, King Jayavarman VII. It was build before the Angor Wat. Overnight at a middle class hotel in Korat. After dinner you can explore the city center, the night market and the statue of heroine Khunying Mo, at the Pratu Chumpon city gate.

3. Day: Korat – Phrasart Phanom Rung - Khao Yai
After breakfast at the hotel you will visit the most impressing Khmer temple in Thailand, Khao Prasart Phanom Rung. The temple was build during the Angkor period in East Thailand, at the former Angkor-Pimai road on a 400 m high volcanic hill. The word "Phanom" or also "Phnom" means "Mountain" and describes the location of the temple, which dominates the eastern plain and offers a spectacular view over the surrounding land. The symmetric east-west alignment and the gates pointing to all 4 directions are typical for the Khmer style. The main axis is around 1/2 km long, a long alley leading up to the monument is reflecting the former influence and power of the Khmer Empire.
Later on, during a stop at Dan Kwian, where you take your lunch at a local restaurant, you have a chance to see the interesting eastern pottery products and replicas of the Khmer art. In the afternoon you continue to the Khao Yai National Park. Overnight and dinner at Juldies Khao Yai Resort & Spa, which is located near the jungle covered mountains of the park.

4. Day: Korat – Khao Yai National Park
After breakfast at the hotel you leave for an excursion into the Khao Yai National Park, which is well known for the unusual variety of plant and animal species. Most impressing for visitors, who are lucky to see them, is the presence of large mammals such as the 250 Elephants and 40-50 tigers. A few easy walks through the jungle will lead you to waterfalls. During the early evening you will experience a very special event: more than a million bats are flying out of a lime stone cave, where they sleep during the day. In a apparently never ending swarm they are flying into the dawn on their nightly search for food.
Dinner and overnight at Juldies Khao Yai Resort & Spa.

Optional excursion: Night safari with the Khao Yai rangers at around 19.30 h.
