Despite the proximity of the two, there’s a distinct contrast in style between the Thai-inspired Wat Phra Kaew and the European design of the Grand Palace. In the evening, attend the optionalbuffet dinner and stunning performance of the “Journey to the Enchanted Kingdom of Siam”. Boasting over 150 performers, this lavish production delves into Siam’s history and culture. (B)

Here, you can see the ruins of the former capital and its remaining palaces, monasteries and towers – one can envision the grandeur and splendor that was once the Kingdom of Ayutthaya.

The country’s first capital was established here in 1238 and lasted over two centuries. Sukhothai is world-famous its over 100 historical sites and treasures, including some of the most beautiful Thai art and architecture in the country, created during the city’s “golden era”, between the 13th and 14th centuries. Visit the Old Town of Sukhothai with its impressive Historical Park, immaculately restored and set among leafy hills and peaceful lotus ponds, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

At this border crossing, arrangements may be made to enter Myanmar*. Ascend to the hilltop viewpoint to see the famous “Golden Triangle” of Southeast Asia – meeting point of the borders of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. The locals call it “Sop Ruak”, as this is also where the Mekong meets the Ruak River. Savor a locally prepared lunch in a nearby farming village. Later, a short cruise then takes you along the banks of the Mekong to the small island of Don Sao in Laos; leisure time at the lively markets before returning to Thailand. Continue to the dramatic House of Opium at Golden Triangle Park, offering an informative exhibition on the history of opium which dates back almost 5000 years before returning to Chiang Rai for overnight.
