What a terrific all-encompassing stroll through the historic buildings of olden-time Thailand - all in one place. If you have a Thai ATM card, remember to ask for Thai entry price (350THB) on presentation or pay the Westerner price of 750THB. My Thai girlfriend and I chose to tour the place on the sightseeing bus but you can also hire... More

Living in Bangkok nearly 10 years, this place didn't even come on my radar until a couple of years ago. I've got to admit that as a westerner, I've found a lot of historical attractions in Thailand to be underwhelming. Either they are truly historical but without enough interpretive explanation for me to understand their significance or they are historical... More

I'm not sure how this place beat out the Royal Palace in Bangkok (which I would put WAY at the top of my list of things to visit), but the Ancient City is definitely worth a look-see. The area is large; so I definitely recommend either a bike or the tram to get from place to place. I'd also recommend... More

This place is really awesome! You can explore the whole Thailand for half day. All facilities and replicas are well maintained. The landscape is excellent, and the bicycle for foreigners is a very nice road bike!

Beautifully kept gardens and buildings. Hire a golf buggy (which is a lot fun) and make your way around, in your own time and out of the sun. Maps are provided.

We weren't sure about visiting Mueang Boran, but decided to head there one afternoon. I have to say that I wish we'd gone earlier in the day as we could have spent longet than the 5 hours we enjoyed there. We caught a cab from the end of the BRT southern line (quick, easy ride in a/c), for a few... More

Absolutely loved this place! There is so much to see and it is all wonderful. Very well maintained exhibits. Our kids loved it and are now keen to see the real places! We hired a golf cart and also used the bikes, both of which were great. We will be back soon to see all the parts we didn't get... More

Located quite a distance away from Bangkok city, we hired a taxi for the whole day. Well worth it as Ilit turned out (read on to see why). When getting there, I suggest you screenshot the website and show it to your taxi driver as most Thai ppp think of another place (Ayuthaya) when we mention Ancient City (Ayuthaya is... More

Wow, this place was incredible. You rent a bicycle and tour a huge national park with a ll these amazing replicas of cultural monuments from all over Southeast Asia.
