Just next to the shrine, there is a huge Chinese dragon statue. Then, you will enjoy a visit of a big orchid farm. Continue to a hundred years old of Sam Chuk riverside market – old Chinese community and old-fashioned market with wooden shophouses remain in original Thai style a century ago.

Built in 1987, it has a two-storey Thai-style convocation hall, and the area has been exquisitely landscaped. Further to Ban Rai Village to experience the finest Thai hand skills such as the beautiful intricately hand weaving.  About two hundred years ago, people from Laos, known as the Lao Krang, settled in the region bringing with them their weaving tradition. In this village, almost every house is a small weaving manufacturer which makes a little enhancement of the income to the farmers’ family.
Proceed to Hub Pa Tad Valley. Surrounded by the old limestone mountains, the hidden forest of rare big palm trees which look like from the time of  “Jurassic Park” is waiting for the outside world to be explored.

After breakfast,  relax at the resort. Then proceed to Nakorn Sawan province. Board on a motor boat to visit the Bird Sanctuary at Bung Boraphet Swamp. Bung Boraphet is the largest swamp in Thailand and it is a wonderful area to spot many different bird species and sweet water flora. In the past was a paradise habitable by hundreds of crocodiles, thousands of fishes and even more birds. Nowadays it is home for many of them, which came to spend winter here – mostly from November to March. There is also a big aquarium and a small crocodile farm, where you can spot these prehistoric beautiful creatures.
Then, proceed to Ayutthaya to visit the historical ruins, Wat Yai Chai Mongkol. Ayutthaya was a former and by far the longest time active capital of Siamese Kingdom that existed from 1350 to 1767. Ayutthaya was friendly towards foreign traders, including the Chinese, Vietnamese, Indians, Japanese and Persians, and later the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and French, permitting them to set up villages outside the walls of the capital, also called Ayutthaya. In the sixteenth century, it was described by foreign traders as one of the biggest and wealthiest cities in the East.
