Walk In Cafe & Grandparents Home

Someone once said that the Ayutthaya is like a lonely nobleman, with a long culture and ancient historical relics. The Buddha statue sitting on the lotus seat is guarding the small city, guarding the tranquility and auspiciousness here, waiting for traveler’s arrival inadvertently. When talking about Ayutthaya, people always think of Buddhist temples first, such as Mahathat, Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Bo Phi Temple, etc. There are many large and small temples in the Ayutthaya, and it is not easy to visit them one by one.

Most people travel to Ayutthaya in a hurry, and just for seeing these Buddhist temples. Therefore, most people’s impression of the Ayutthaya remains in the historical relics, but some new culture is missing. In fact, Ayutthaya can also be described as petty bourgeoisie, literary art, and freshness. Here is a recommendation for everyone about a private restaurant in Ayutthaya, whose taste and environment are superb.

Ayutthaya is not big, and coffee shops and restaurants are definitely incomparable with Chiang Mai and Bangkok, but there are still many good shops if you really want to look for them. Walk In Cafe & Grandparents Home is one of them. The shop seems to be in a garden, as it is surrounded by green plants. The wooden chairs and white window grilles in the shop are not fancy and make people feel comfortable.

The main item in the store is ice cream hot pot. When you open the official FB, almost all the photos are of different styles of ice cream. The ice cream is held in a small pot with dry ice under the pot. When it is brought up, you can see it from a distance, as if it is “fairy” and the weight is not small at all. In addition to ice cream, smoothies of various flavors are also an artifact to cool off the heat.

Hot pot, cakes, and pasta are also recommended dishes in the store, each of which is full of portion. Like the hot pot, there are shrimps, squid, mussels, crab sticks, eggs, and other side dishes. After a meal here, all the heat and fatigue are probably dispelled.

Bang Pa-In Palace

Bang Pa-In Palace was built here in the 17th century by the Ayutthaya Dynasty, and was later burned down by the Burmese invasion. In the nineteenth century, Bangkok’s dynasty Rama IV re-elected to build a summer palace here. The summer palace has pleasant scenery, and it is mainly featuring the Western-style architecture, and there is a Chinese Tang Dynasty style palace, which integrates the Western, Thai, and Chinese architectural features.

Bang Pa-In Palace was originally built by King Prasat Thong of Ayutthaya Dynasty in 1632. Later, when Myanmar invaded Ayutthaya in 1767, it destroyed the summer palace and was slowly abandoned. Until the beginning of 1874, Emperor Chulalongkorn expanded and hired foreign architects to design and build many European-style buildings. Today, the entire Bang Pa-In Palace is like a quiet European-style manor with beautiful scenery and it is very fascinating.

All the materials and exhibits of the entire palace were shipped from China. The red pillars and yellow tiles of the whole palace show the style of the Forbidden City. The wall outside the palace is also engraved with the image of a dragon, giving Chinese tourists a sense of being in the country.

In addition, the most striking thing is the water imperial pavilion located in the middle of the lake. The pavilion is the typical Thai “three-pointed” style. The pavilion is like a golden crown, supported by dozens of golden pillars. It is the logo of Bang Pa-In Palace and is also one of the must-see attractions. The entire summer palace is actually not large, and photographing is prohibited in many places in the Bang Pa-In Palace. But the palace and the flowers and plants in the park show the meticulous design of the Bang Pa-In Palace, and it is charming under the blue sky and white clouds.
