Our first stop was to Bang-Pa In Royal Palace, which is the summer palace of the royal family of Thailand. It was built in the 1600's but most of the current building were constructed in the 1800's.
It is now only used by the royal family for banquets and special occasions.
Next we went to a couple of the temples of Ayutthaya.
Wat Chaiwatthanaram is one of the best perserved of the temples in the area.
One of the interesting sights we saw was at Wat Mahathat. It is the head of the buddha in the tree roots.
When the city was fell to the Burmese it was destroyed. And also many temples were also destroyed, including cutting off the heads of the bhudda statues. This head was placed near the wall of the temple, and over the hundreds of years the tree grew around it.
Our final stop was an elephant ride. This was a pretty popular stop so we had to wait in line for a bit.
But it gave me a chance to get my picture taken with one of the elephants.
The ride was interesting. We went around the area of one of the old temples.
A fun way to end the day.
