My daughter and we're looking for something to do in the afternoon and Ancient city popped up as one of the top ten things to do where we live. We made our way down there and got there about 3:45; the ticket lady advised it would be a good idea to wait as the price drops by 50% at 4:00.... More

The Ancient City is close by to Bangkok and definitely worth a visit. SHORT: (keep in mind, this is not a 60min visit, reserve plenty of time!) - approx. 100 historical Thai sites replicated in one large park (move by car/golf cart/bicycle) - history & culture from the whole country from different time periods - rentals available (golf cart/bicycle) -...

An amazing recreation of some of the best sites Thailand has to offer. Hire a golf cart and spend the day exploring recreations of important buildings from Thai history, some no longer in existence.

This is a huge and amazingly good attraction to visit, but not well promoted/advertised, and although having visited Bangkok several times, I had only just heard about it before this latest visit. A large area covering several acres, with a mix of reproduction, restored and relocated historical Thai buildings from all regions and periods of Thailand's history. Free bikes are... More

We rented a golf buggy to get around inside the park. The ticket price is on the pricy side but its was well worth it. We spent a good 5 hours in here, missing nothing & exploring every path in the given map. Many opportunities to take great photos of beautiful temples, fountains & statues. If you love history &...

A great place to visit to see many iconic Thai historical replicas & miniaturised buildings such as the Grand Palace & Floating Markets. We where there about 4 hours and only saw a small part of it. We will be back again to see more.

Beware, do not come to this park. The prices are extravagant and you will regret it. Foreigners pay now 5 times more than Thais. It is beautiful but absolutely not worth the price.

In general, we are no big fans of theme parks but this one is really different Located rather far away from Bangkok, it will be difficult for some to come here without a car (BTS Sukhumvit line extension to Kheha Samut Prakan is currently under construction and will open in 2017, if everything goes according to plan) Is it expensive...

This is a huge park with the steep entry fee for foreigners (700 THB). There are replicas buildings from different parts of Thailand, but the quality of replicas varies and one never gets the feeling of a real thing. E.g You do not feel the spirituality of real wats , there is nothing to see in the floating market. The... More
