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. Plan for the heat, pack a lunch, have a picnic. Make a day of it so you're not in any rush and stay for the sunset at the top of the... More

I was taken here by friends on my second trip to Thailand in 2012. This year my 21 year old daughter who is studying archaeology and asian cultures at university is coming with me. One of my first choices is to take her here as it really does give you an idea of most of Thailand all in the one... More

We went to Ancient City with six of our children and it was a great day. It is a little distance from Bangkok but worth the travel. It is huge but very well marked and well laid-out and we were able to get a good overall view of Thai architecture and culture in one fell swoop. Because of its size,... More

I visited Ancient City in July 2014 and had a thoroughly good day. It is located to the south of Bangkok in Samutprakan, and take about 45mins to 1 hour from central Bangkok in a taxi depending on traffic. It is a huge park representing the different regions of Thailand with large lakes, temples, statues and monuments etc. You can... More

I’ve been visiting the area for years and had never heard of it until a colleague mentioned it. At first the entry fee of Bt700 seems a bit steep but when you see what’s there it’s incredible. Dozens and dozens of Thai monuments recreated in amazing detail giving a real picture of culture and history. They’ve even mounted Khao Pra... More

We, my wife and myself visited this place. In a generously wide area we found great sculptures, buildings etc. You can tell, that a lot of effort has been made to make this place look nice. But, we found also some disappointments: Visitors who expect to get more in-depth info on Thailands history (not only a nice park) will be... More
