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...

Visited here on November 2014. Took the BTS to bearing station and hailed a cab from the station to Ancient. Travel time took about 30 minutes actual taxi meter says 153 Baht. The place is nice with all its replicas and creative structures but its a bit disappointing that the whole place is no longer well kept. Some areas have... More

Been to Bangkok 8 times and never ever visited this place, wish we had, as it was lovely and peaceful. Have visited most of the places that were recreated here, and I prefer the mock up floating market rather than the real one, we had a buggy to go round as it was rather a large area to cover especially...

Ancient City is very far away from the town centre of Bangkok. You have to take BTS to the last station of the line (Bearing station), and then take a cab, it will take around 30 mins. (prepare for a Thai address) The place is really huge and you can spend all day long there. Ticket is 700 bahts pp,... More

I came here with my local friends by bus but had to change buses along the way. The easiest way to go there is to take BTS to Bearing then get a taxi. According to my friend, the owner of this place is celebrating an anniversary or birthday and entrance fee is FREE on 15-17 November 2014 :) The place... More

This place is must visit if you are in Bangkok for a trip. It is a huge place, aptly called as Ancient city and depicts entire history and evolution of Thai people through multiple original like replicas of temples, houses, lifestyle,structures etc. They cover almost everything of Bangkok. Very convenient too, you can take your own car, a free bicycle,... More

The first thing I though about when I saw their brochure was, "They exactly had us in mind when they built this." You see, we flew in around midnight the night before and flew out the next evening. How could we possibly go around Bangkok and see all the sites there are? Mueang Boran or the Ancient City was the... More

I took my elderly parents there and dad being a keen golfer rented the golf cart and like a kid, thoroughly enjoyed driving is around. The park was beautiful and the exhibits were very well done, even had wildlife there, lizards and buffalo roaming around (but safely tethered). Lots of shops along the way to buy refreshments and a nice... More

We only had one day in Thailand, having arrived at the Laem Chabang port on a cruise. This was perfect as it is just as far as Bangkok but more relaxing and interesting.

I visited this place last July 2014. It is a one pit stop for those who wants to see all of the historical places of Thailand but doesn't have the luxury of time to explore the country. The place is massive but luckily there is a tram that goes around the park or you can use the bicycles (for free)... More
