For an excellent introduction to the culture, history and architecture of Thailand The Ancient City (Muang Boran) is a MUST when visiting Bangkok. I strongly recommend visiting this amazing park before taking any of the day tours in the City. The 600 acre park is the brainchild of a very smart business man who wanted to provide a quick way...

Little known to tourist we enjoyed the trip very much. It has all the famous landmarks in Thailand reduced in size.Not miniature but about one third size . A size you can appreciate their beauty. There is a tram tour of 2 hours in English.and free bikes but the easiest way to get round was to hire a golf buggy.... More

Absolutely amazing place that will keep you entertained and intrigued all day. Very well kept place with many interesting things to see. Plenty of places for food and drinks around the park ( I recommend the floating market for a nice meal ). Very big place so renting a bike or a golf cart is definitely the best way to... More

I read about it in Trip Advisor and decided to visit. Traveling to Ancient Siam was cheap - traveled to Bearing BTS, took Yellow aircon Bus 511 than Songthaew no 36 for 20 bahts and it took me straight inside the entrance gate. Admission fee was 700 baht and a nice printed map and a photo book guide about Ancient... More

Spent over 3 hours there going as fast as we could and I think we did not even see half of the place. Biking is do-able if you want to just take your time and see only part of it (unless you are really fit and go fast). I think most people rent the golf cart - that is what... More

Less than an hour from Central Bangkok and most definitely worth a visit. A huge park containing replicas of Thailand's most famous architecture. Best to hire a bike when you are there. Not in anyway glitzy - enjoy.

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
