Day 1:
BANGKOK
Transfer from the airport (Suvarnabhumi or Don Muang) to the hotel.
We visit the most important temples of the capital outside the Grand Palace complex: Wat Trimit, Wat Suthat and Wat Pho.
Return to the hotel.

Day 2:
BANGKOK (Breakfast)
Transfer to the Royal Palace, the symbol of the nation and the most glorified landmark of the country. We visit the most revered temples of Thailand: Wat Phra Kaeow (home of the Emerald Buddha), the Golden Chedi, the Chakri Pantheon, and the Eight Colorful Towers. Taking pictures is forbidden inside all temples but allowed everywhere outside. A dress code is required on this visit: as T-shirts and shorts are not allowed neither for men nor for women, it is recommended to wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers and skirts. It is compulsory to remove the shoes before entering all temples.
Departure for a boat tour of the "klong" (the Chao Phraya river canals) on longtail boats. This is the best way to discover a totally different side of Bangkok, away from traffic jams, big hotels and ubiquitous shopping malls. The klong excursion will show you the waterways of the oldest part of the city, Thonburi, where people still live on houses on stilts, in a traditional and peaceful way. The excursion ends with a visit at the beautiful Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn.
Return to the hotel.

Day 3:
BANGKOK - DAMNERN SADUAK - BANGKOK (Breakfast)
Morning departure to visit Damnern Saduak, the most famous of the floating markets. Along the way, we visit the fresh market in Mae Klong, known as the Railway Market, unique because of the train that passes through it at certain times of the day, forcing vendors to move their goods in a hurry but just for a few minutes. Arrival at the photogenic Damnern Saduak, where dozens of farmers paddle their little boats loaded with fruits, vegetables and foods to buy and sell from boat to boat, creating a vibrant floating market.
Return to Bangkok.

Day 4:
BANGKOK - AYUTTHAYA – PHITSANULOK - SUKHOTHAI (Breakfast, Lunch)
Early morning departure to reach the Bang Pa In Summer Palace, a lovely site used by the Royal Family to escape the summer heat of Bangkok, retiring in a lovely compound made of pleasant gardens, lotus ponds and delicate-looking villas, featuring a blend of Eastern and Western architectural styles. After visiting some residences we proceed to nearby Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam, founded in 1350. We visit the most important temples of the Historical Park: Wat Mahathat, Wat Phrasrisanphet and Wat Mongkolbophit.
Departure for Sukhothai.
Lunch in a typical restaurant along the way.
In the afternoon we arrive in Phitsanulok and we stop to visit Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, a very important Buddhist temple, home of one of the most revered and iconic images of the Buddha. This image, Phra Phuttha Chinnarat, is the best example of the artistic style of the Sukhothai period.

We pass by the Baan Dam, literally the Black House, an open air museum, home and workshop of one of Thailand's leading artists, whose work is displayed in art galleries worldwide. Baan Dam is only interesting as modern art and has no religious intents.
Lunch in a typical restaurant.
