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

HUGE area with reconstructions/replicas of landmarks in Thailand. Bicycles included in ticket. Me and 2 friends enjoyed the place immensely and we will go back again. Also we didn't see all because of the sheer size. 700 bath for tourists is steep, but well worth it !! Inside you can buy food very inexpensively and the souvenirs are cheap and... More

It is a very large and beautiful Park. People had very little. For 7-8 hours we drove all around the Park on bikes, ate, took a ride on the boat, twice to lie in the beautiful buildings alone. If you are a big company, you can take a big Golf cart. The entrance is 700 b per person. It is... More

A lovely idea to put most of Thailand's historical landmarks in one huge park, so that they can be visited on one go. They are scaled down, but nonetheless, this attraction offers a great way to have an idea of what Ancient Siam looked like, and perhaps to motivate travels to see the real versions of the sites. Golf buggies... More

I went on an unseasonably nice day in Bangkok, and rode a free bike around to my heart's delight! The whole area is flat, so it's really not difficult, and I think you can more easily stop at places you want to visit. I went on a Thursday; there were a few school groups riding the trolley, and other small... More

A collection buildings and temples and boats and houses set in a beautiful surroundings, to truly show Old Siam. Tour the site in an electric buggy as it so big, driving licence or ID needed. My wife and I had hired a taxi for the day and after visiting the elephant museum we arrived at Old Siam and really it... More

We spent a full day there and we just loved the place!!! It's perfect if you already visited Thailand because it will remind you places like Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai... And if you haven't visited anything then it will give ideas of what you might want to visit in the future! There are 3 kinds of miniatures in this... More
