Have 5 days in bangkok makes me have a question, "where should I go?" Some famous objects such as Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Chatuchak, Jim Thomson will be main destination for tourist. I never heard about Ancient City - Mueang Boran, so I try to go there. After 1 hour by taxi from sukhumvit area, i reach this... More

Ancient city is great place to visit, but is a bit far from the city of Bangkok. The best way to go there is probably thru taxi which will cost around 800 to 1000 baht (ROUND TRIP). If your in a budget you can take the BTS station and go down on Bearing station and take the taxi going to... More

Being able to visit Thailand in a single day, able to see buildings, temples, houses, floating market, palaces, villages, Royal river barges, great landscape arrangements .... all as original buildings and or best possible recreation from all over Thailand. The older buildings are actually taken, dismantled and rebuild at 'Ancient City'. This idea was the vision of the owner, who... More

Very good place to visit, a sort of summary of Thai arts and architecture in the form of a park. Place to visit.

Like : There are over hundreds of replica all over the park and the food is good and at a very reasonable price. You can rent a golf cart at 150Bht/hour to save yourself from the scouring hot sun. But if you don't mind the sun, bicycle are available for free. Downside : Shuttle bus mentioned on the website is... More

Mueang Boran is huge. The buildings and structures are beautiful but it lacks soul. The landscape is OK. The owner invests a lot of money in the Ancient City. I suggest you should spend at least half a day at the City.

This was second time I visited Ancient City. The first time was about 30 years ago when I was in high school and our school took us there. I was impressed with the construction at that time and that impression was still with me now. Most of Thailand historical sites/temples/area were replicated and constructed inside huge area of Ancient City.... More

Had lovely day here with my wife. Well worth a visit, at first I thought it was a little expensive considering we were in Thailand but when you see how much they have to maintain inside & some of the beautiful relics of Thailand you think it is well worth it. If you go after 4 pm it's half price... More
