Really great attraction to go to.....hire a golf cart to get around as it takes you on a trip through Thailand and the ages. Well worth the visit and please that we did it!

A collection buildings and temples and boats and houses set in a beautiful surroundings, to truly show Old Siam. Tour the site in an electric buggy as it so big, driving licence or ID needed. My wife and I had hired a taxi for the day and after visiting the elephant museum we arrived at Old Siam and really it... More

We spent a full day there and we just loved the place!!! It's perfect if you already visited Thailand because it will remind you places like Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai... And if you haven't visited anything then it will give ideas of what you might want to visit in the future! There are 3 kinds of miniatures in this... More

Ancient Siam was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. There is much to see in an almost idyllic environment. As other reviewers have noted, the fee for foreigners is 700 Baht (but half price after 4 pm). The price includes the free use of a bicycle, but consider using a golf cart for 150 Baht for one hour (plus a 15... More

I have lived in Thailand for 15 years and been travelling here for almost 30 years. The Ancient City is one of the best attractions I have visited, and I would visit time and again. ,y preference is to take a bicycle and cycle as there are few cars in the park (personal cars attract a fee) and there are...

The admission fee is THB 700 for adults including a bike (local people costs THB 350 for adults). If you don't know how to ride a bike, you have to either take a tram or golf cart. It is quite impossible to walk as the area is so huge. We rent a golf cart which costs THB 150/hr to shorten... More

There's a wealth of awesome photo opportunities here. Entrance fee is THB 700 for adults, which includes a bicycle. The golf cart hire costs THB 150 / hour. There are restaurants and many reasonably priced souvenir stalls. During Songkran, there's a particularly festive atmosphere.

It's worth the pain to travel down there along the building site of the BTR Skytrain. Make sure you do have some 6 hours down there, for it's a huge place and some of the buildings do cost some time to explore. Rent a Golf cart, it's worth it. Shadow, breeze and all. Make sure you have a few GB... More

if you have any travel experience in Thailand, you may skip the Ancient City. In 8 years of Asian travels I have never experienced a so poorly organizes tourist attraction. for 700 THB you get a 2 hr tram tour, which did not appear as scheduled at the waiting area of the ticket office. after the 3rd enquiry we were...
