I watched a recent Season 1 Episode of the really interesting Travel Show called "Departures" where Scott and Justin travel to Thailand.
My question is to anyone who has seen this Episode. Scott and Justin took a train from Bangkok, and travelled to a city they called "Utia"(sp). The train ticket only cost them $1Canadian and it was basically only a day-trip, a full day at that.
I know that the city name is either spelled wrong or they called it a wrong name (or both) because I have searched high and low for this place with no luck.
They described this city as the old Capital of Thailand. Once in Utia(?) they hired a trike driver to show them some of the sites of the city. One site was an old temple, another was a very old tree that has a face carved in the roots. This was only a day trip because they were back at the train station at dusk in time to catch a train back to Bangkok.
Does anyone know what city I am talking about, or has someone seen this episode of Departures and can tell me where they went?
Any info would be a HUGE help to me since I leave for Bangkok in two weeks and this day trip looked like something I reeeeaallly would like to do.
Thanks in advance. :)
