Good pace to cycle around
Jan 2021
A very large park containing replicas of many Thai historic buildings from across the land. The entrance fee includes bike rental and the park is designed to be viewed by bike or shared ride. Too large an area to walk. Be careful where you leave your bike when entering a building as ours were taken by, I assume, other tourists. There is no cost involved as the bikes can not be taken out of the park. It did mean we had to return to the entrance to get new bikes. A good place for cycling, particularly with kids.

good but mostly bad
Nov 2020
some parts were well maintained and some parts had the feeling of old collapsed communism city that have fallen into disrepair. one of the items that is a must see is nothing like the photos you see it is in disrepair yet still being built. prices are high for the quality. map is confusing and not very good. they also need to really enforce and pay attention to vehicles speeding. we were almost taken out by two trucks doing highway speeds in the park.

Amazing Pictures

We took too many pictures because each shot was better than the last. We were lucky in that tourism was down because of the Chinese lock down.

Thai architecture and culture in a day

A huge park with miniature landmarks and architecture of all the regions of Thailand. With the admission fee, you can add either bicycle rental, golf card rental, or a permit for your own car. You can also add headphones and audio rental as well.
The place is beautifully kept, with clean coffeeshops and bathrooms, and a few shops selling souvenirs. We ended up buying most of our gifts for friends and family here!

It's a cultural park highlighting architecture of various regions and historic periods of Thailand (Siam). The admission fee I paid included bicycle rental and headphones for an audio guided tour in English. I totally enjoyed my visit.

Breathtaking !!

Beautiful Thai architecture, parks, photo spots, golf carts for convenience, not crowded, easy to reach .... the place is for everyone.
You can take the BTS till the last E station and it's a 2-3 km by a tuk-tuk. Tuk tuk charges you THB 20 per person and drops you at the gate.
These are not tourist tuk tuk, but very friendly

Tickets were at THB 700 which is a bit high and the buggy was available for 350 THB for an HR. Additional hrs at THB 200 per HR. One buggy can take 4 - 6 people ... But despite tickets being priced higher it's worth the visit. I rather skip grand palace for this

You can spend 3-4 hours if you take a golf cart. You also get free cycles which may take more time and can be difficult considering the hot weather.

Best time would be to reach the place at 3 and spend 3 hours

Takes you about 1 HR in a metro from E 1-3 stations

History and Culture - amazing day out
Dec 2019
About an hour South of Bangkok is the Moana Boran Ancient City. A huge outdoor museum depicting buildings from all over Thailand. Some of the buildings are the real deal, brought from the original location to be preserved and others are replicas created by artists to represent the original buildings.

You can enter all the buildings and take photos everywhere. We rented a golf cart and could not get through everything. We however saw impressive places from town markets, palaces, temples and even a Chinese Pavilion. The museum is excellently maintained, clean and offers multiple facilities (restrooms, little shops and restaurants).

A great outing for young and old.

Awesome examples of Thai architecture

Designs from various historical periods all gathered together in one large park. Attractive place that is well kept up. A bit far out from the city center but surely worth the journey.
