    The day begins with a trip to the ancient city of Si Thep. Si Thep was one of the most important and powerful cities in the Dvaravati kingdom of the Mon people of Central Thailand. Its long history, stretching from a humble settlement in the 3rd century to a thriving city at the height of the Angkorian period of the Khmer Empire in the 13th century made it a vital cultural centre, the importance of which was recognised when UNESCO added it to the register of World Heritage Sites in 2023. Visiting Si Thep is an immersive experience, revealing corridors of history that few have a chance to walk and fewer still can forget. One part of the adventure concluded, the next leads us to the peaceful city of Phitsanulok, one of Thailand’s most important centres of pilgrimage, for lunch, leisure, and an overnight stay.
