An amazing collection of old buildings from different parts and ages of Thailand. A huge amount of work must have gone into creating these very realistic replicas. This is the place to go if you want to see historical building art, or if you just want a million great photo opportunities.

First of all you will need to arrange transportation to get here. About 500 baht from Bangkok each way is about right. Entrance fee for a foreigner is about 500 baht also. This is a pretty big area. You can walk around, rent a bike(pedal), or ride a golf cart. This is a recreation of the entire country with smaller... More

By far the best attraction I visited in Bangkok during my two week stay. A little outside the city, perhaps 45 to an hour by car, but the journey is worth it. A simple stunning place, and an incredible insight to the majestic, fascinating kingdom of Ancient Siam. I had seen pictures before my visit but couldn't believe how wonderful... More

It was a great decision to take this attraction for my family. It took us ~40 min on a txi from Bangkok (~250 BTH), Very well designed place: clean, accurate, various option to navigate through the park. We bought 4 tickets (2 + 2 children): 700x2 + 350x2 BTH. In addition we booked a golf car for 4 people (300... More

We arrived on a nice quiet day, and enjoyed cycling around, taking in the displays, and a sense of freshness from escaping the city proper for a few hours. It was a nice surprise to even see the sea from the top of one of the model temples! While undoubtedly a little over-romantic about Thai culture - that's what this... More

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.
