We took the excursion to Ayutthaya, Thailand’s ancient capital which was built in the 14th century (if I remember right). We left around 8:20am, and the drive was about 2.5 hours. It was north of Bangkok.
Our first stop was the Summer Palace in Ayutthaya. It was beautiful – the ground was meticulously maintained. 4 of us shared a gold cart to tour the ground, getting off at different spots to visit the buildings. The weather was very very hot, which made the whole thing unpleasant for me.
After the Summer Palace, we were taken to a Chinese restaurant (in a high-end hotel) for lunch
We left Ayutthaya after 5pm, and got back to the ship a few minutes before 8pm. A long day! Ship officials told us that it’s OK for us to go to the dinner buffet at the 11th floor. We really appreciated that!! The ship presented each lady with a big red rose, for Valentine's Day!
Ira and Fran finally arrived at the ship, all well!!! They waited for us for dinner and we had a good time! Now we’re back in our room, ready to shower and have a good rest!
