Bangkok, Thailand Day 6

Day 6

Bank Pa-In Palace--The Summer Palace of the King of Siam.  Wow, what a beautiful palace or several palaces!

We visited the ruins in Ayutthaya, the original capital of Thailand dating back to the 1300s.  When was destroyed in the war with the Burma (present day Myanmar) in 1767, the Thai abandoned the city headed south to rebuild the capital.  The kids found bats in the ruins.  We all rode elephants.  Lunch was fried chicken, sticky rice and fresh pineapple at a roadside restaurant.
