Central Thailand

The vast plains that extend north and west of Bangkok, otherwise known as the Central Plains, are Thailand’s traditional heartland, and to this day remain the cultural, religious and economic heart of the country. Explore Thailand's distant past in the ancient capitals of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai, or its more recent history in Kanchanaburi, site of the infamous Death Railway.

Bangkok and Ayutthaya

You did a great job in crafting the parts of this trip and all of us were very happy with what we saw and did.
