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

If you only have a few days in Bangkok this place would still be worth a visit. It's a little way out of the city (we had a car) but would be worth the effort. It's a massive park - we probably only saw two thrids of it. On the day we were there it was really quiet - we... More

Place is a bit out of town but research it and you will find free buses can get you there. When you arrive and you feel confident enough go and hire a golf buggy, easily the best way to get around at your own pace. Tram tour is poor and not in English and biking is too much to bare... More

This place is really huge 4 hours exploring is the minimum. Tickets are not cheap but it is worth the money. Inside you will find the historical reconstructions of southern Asia famous buildings. I would recommend to anyone wishing to spend an interesting time at open air.

I was supposed to guide the group to Ayutthaya but decided to visit this outdoor park on the first day of the trip since its very close to Bangkok, just less than an hour by taxi. With the entrance fee of 700 baht which included the use of the bike and touring the entire Thailand with its marvelous landmarks and... More

The ancient city Mueang Boran is well worth a visit whilst in Bangkok - it is steep in history and there is lots to see. Takes a whole day to do it justice and you can start by taking a 'tram' ride around the city first to orientate yourself. Entry fee is 400Bt. At the moment it is best to... More

I found this place listed on a local resident blog. We went there travelling from Bangkok Central BST station until the end of the line Bearing station. As recommended on the website we then took bus 511 till Sumat Prakan thereafter the local bus 36. We had to ask about the bus stop for the local bus but beside that... More

This reconstruction really showed what early travellers to Siam would have seen the detail in the reconstructed temples and houses is simply beautiful. Loved cycling around the city to dicover more and taking the boat trip. Good value for money

This open air museum is probably one of its kind in the world. So many architectural wonders to visit in a day, and the inside of some of these palaces/temples are amazing with a lot of hand painting and glass mosaics and sculptures. Definitely eat at the floating market and enjoy a bike ride if you can; kids love it... More

On our last day at Bangkok, we were contemplating between shopping or a visit to Muang Boran... Well, we chose the latter and it was a wise decision indeed. All of Bangkok's/Thailand's attraction housed in one place... A great perspective of history, culture and arts.
