One of Thailand's best kept secrets just an hour out of Bangkok. So much history here it takes at least two days to just grasp the magnitude of Ancient City. Do not go to Thailand and miss Ancient City!

Every corner and province of Thailand has its monuments and artifacts in Ancient City. Area is not that big, you can walk or ride bicycle for free. 3-4 hours is nicely spent. Tourist prize is 700 baht for adult and 350 for child. There are cafes, restaurants, clean public toilets and market places all over the area.

The Ancient City (also known as Ancient Siam) is a 200 acre park shaped as the country of Thailand. Full of wonderful full size or scaled down versions of famous buildings depicting all the regions of Thailand. You can easily spend all day here as there is so much to see; we drove around the whole park but only managed... More

This place is also known as Ancient Siam. It is a huge park (over 300 acres) laid out in the shape of Thailand. In the park you will find replicas of significant structures in Thailand (some scaled down) laid out in nicely landscaped grounds. These structures include temples, shrines, palaces, pavilions, statues etc that existed through Thailand's history. It is... More

A quite unique park outside Bangkok, replicating temples and buildings from all around Thailand. It is well worth half a day. Set off early and hire a bike or golf cart to get around - walking (especially in Thai heat) is not really practical, given the huge size of the park. It's not cheap (about $20 per head), but it...

Such a fun experience! Definitely take the bike as it is very fun to bike around the loop. If you go during the day it is a bit more expensive (700 THB) but if you go after 4pm it is only 350THB

Muang Boran is an 200 acre open air Museum of landmark Icons Thailand, located 33kms from Bangkok, the largest museum in the world. Get around the park by free push bike (no hills) or hire golf kart or jump aboard the open trams, then take a break in the floating market restaurant... where else can you visit all of Thailand...

A must see attraction for anyone who loves all the historical sites in Thailand. The park is even shaped like Thailand. You need at least 5 hours to see all the exhibits. Some people complain about the entrance fee, but when you consider park fees in other countries, they are reasonable. 700 THB for foreigners, 350 THB for Thais.

This was one of our excursions when we were in Thailand. This Ancient City is dubbed as the world's largest outdoor museum spreading over 200 acres, and filled with full size or scaled down versions of Thailand's historically significant structures, Thai shrines, palace, pagoda, stupas. Some are replicas of the original and reconstructed originals. An interesting place to spend a... More
