Bangkok: Discover Thailand at "Ancient City"
Permalink  
 


Just 33 kms from Bangkok
The Ancient City is the door opening to the heritage of Thai wisdom. With a wide range of architectural symbols combined with fine arts and craftsmanship, structural layout and natural environment that integrate harmoniously.

The Ancient City creates kind of atmosphere that induces visitors to perceive and appreciate the continuity of history, cultures, religions, arts and customs of Thai people from dawn until now.

2010-2011 tour groups rate this venue as 9 out of 10

- Just a visit to the Ancient City is comparable to a Thailand-round journey within a day.

- The layout preserves the pattern of traditional Thai lifestyles, which is hard to behold nowadays.

- In vicinity of Suwananbhumi Airport, only about 40 minutes away

- Located in the neighbourhood of Bangkok, only one-hour travel, the Ancient City is accessible by many convenient routes.

- Accommodations and activity sites are available

We recently took some clients there from Bangkok and this is a short description of the day:

This trip costs about  3,350 baht / 4 persons:
- 1,500 (to rent a taxi with driver all day)
- 1,100(tickets for 4 people)
- 300 (to get the taxi into Ancient City)
- 300 (to rent a golf car for an hour, but after that we used the taxi we had hired to move inside the site)
- 150 (food and drinks for 3 people)  

*8.00 am: We left the hotel. It took 45 mins to get to Ancient City.Traffic is bad in the morning.
*8.45 - 8.55am: We got to The Ancient City. Went to buy tickets.
*8.55 - 9.30am: We had coffee and pineapple cookies at the coffee shop and relaxed.
*9.30am - 12.30pm: We visited the site and took many pictures.
*12.30-01.00 pm: We visited the Floating Market and had lunch Noodle soup in a typical Thai boat next to a beautiful  canal. We then went shopping in the old Thai market where you can enjoy old wooden houses, shops surronded by beautiful trees.
*1.00- 2.30 pm: We visited some more, (walked up the main hill to enjoy an incredible view of the site and of Bangkok. Really beautiful and unforgetable. You can actually see the famous Rama 8 bridge in Bangkok from there. We took many pictures and headed back home.

It's a great day out not far from Bangkok. 
Anyone who goes there would say "incredible". Ninety square miles filled with typical Thai architecture, art and flaura. There are also a few lakes. You can find great artefacts and meet the people who make them. You can also talk to the people who are refurbishing and restoring the monuments in a pure Thai style. The team leader's daughter is actually studying and living in Melbourne, it's a small world isn'it?
