2. From the airport, we drove up to Khao Yai and put up a night in The Series Khao Yai resort.
3. The next day, after visiting a few places along the way, we spent the night at the Baan Suan Noi Resort – which is basically the Hobbiton of Thailand.
4. After checking out, we proceeded to Ayutthaya. After doing our rounds of this historical place, we took the drive back into Bangkok, dropping off our car in the airport.
5. We spent the next few nights back in Bangkok, for some shopping and to stuff our faces with more food :p
We are still quite impressed with ourselves for making this 5-day, 4 nights itinerary and we definitely could not do this without renting a car, but I’d say that we were still overambitious with our time.
For this part of my Thailand road trip article, I want to start off with all the sights done between Khao Yai and Ayutthaya.
Khao Yai is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, nestled within a mountainous region of National Park that covers 1,351 metres in area of lush jungles and beautiful waterfalls. We did not have time to visit the nature side of things here, so we did not cover much of the national park. However, there are already enough things to see and do here that is worth our visit. Here are some of the places I enjoyed while were there!
