I'm surprised that i didn't know about this place, till my latest visit to Bangkok. This place is unbelievably grand with almost real looking replicas of most of the popular Thai destinations. Some of the cons include: 1. It's very far off from the city. Most of the drivers don't even recognize the word "Ancient City". After waiting for 15... More

Not only was the place really beautiful with all the recreations of old buildings and temples, but you get a bike, or can rent a golf cart, to drive around and visit the place. It was so much fun, and so relaxing just biking around enjoying the scenery and the sun. Just remember sunblock!! We got a little burnt while... More

A nice theme park that shows you places of interest in Thailand and it's neighboring country, in a miniature scale. To get here from the city center would take about 2 hours drive but it is a fun place to visit and a great way to have a good look at some of the beautiful architecture of the old Siam.... More

Just went there today. There're trees and flowers everywhere. You can easily find refreshment stalls/restaurants and toilets throughout the park so it's easy for you to take breaks even if it's hot. Jusy a great escape from the hectic city! Some of the replicas don't look so genuine but some look pretty nice. Overall it gives you a good overview... More

This is a great attraction. It is a bit off the beaten path but is easily accessed by taxi or tour. This park is dedicated to showing ancient life in Thailand. There is a mountain with temple ruins, a replica of the Palace of Bangkok, a river with ancient war barges and many buildings showing how people lived. They take... More

It is now called Ancient Siam and is about the ancient history, traditions and culutre and the art work. You can get there by taxi and by bus. It is open from 9.00 am to 8 pm everyday. The tickets costs 700 bahts for foreigners and the best way to get around it is to hire a golf buggy which... More

Is a magnificent park in the shape of Thailand with reproductions of fabulous sites in the location on the map where they exist or existed. Some are originals, some are originals which have been refurbished and some are recreations perhaps not same size, but to scale. Rent a bike or a golf cart in order to see as much of... More

About 50 years ago, a man interested in historic preservation designed an 800 acre park to look like the country of Thailand to include waterways and mountains. He filled the park with replicas or restorations of important cultural buildings, artifacts, crafts, and animals to show life as it was when the country was known as Siam. The result is simply...

If you feel like spending time traveling around Thailand, but only have one day to do it, this is the place for you. If you are lucky enough to have a relatively cool day you will have a very pleasant time. There are lots of temples, canals, recreated historical buildings, gardens etc...covering a large outdoor area. We were lucky to... More
