Foreigners pay 750, Thais pay 350.
This is called exploitation of foreigners and is disgusting.
If you are happy to be exploited then go and you will enjoy it.
I hate being used like this.
Such pricing is illegal in many civilized countries.

The included tour if you reach this site by public transportation does not give you enough time to observe and enjoy the monuments. It only covers some of the buildings.

This is billed as an outdoor museum and consists of replicas of great building from throughout Thailand, some full scale and others a bit smaller. They have statues and fantastic fountains. Some exhibits are original that have been moved to the site such as houses, boats, gardens of kings.

This is not far from the last stop on the Bangkok elevated BTS skytrain, so easy to get to even though it is about 25kms from the city centre.

Entrance fee is quite pricey for Thailand at 700 baht for foreigners, half that for Thais and ASEAN nationals, but they do throw in the use of a basic bicycle, and you can spend several hours there. You also get an audio guide to the various exhibits, most of them life-size replicas of Thailand's most notable artifacts.

The grounds have been very nicely landscaped, and are ideal for cycling around. The roads meander a lot and it is easy to lose your bearings. The replicas are impressive, built to a high standard. There is a fun floating market, although most of the stalls are not on boats, and the food is decidedly mediocre - bring your own if you are particular. If you like the orange-coloured Thai iced tea, however, a very authentic and cheap (20B) version is sold by one boat lady.

As in similar Thai parks cars are allowed to drive alongside the bikes, which is a shame. Even some tour buses. But if you go outside weekends and public holidays you won't see many, and the roads are often nicely shaded by trees. For a 'green' break from the concrete heat of Bangkok this is hard to beat. You can upgrade your bike to a marginally better mountain bike for 150B. There are also electric golf buggies for rent.

This is one of the most interesting place that should visit when travel to Samut Prakran Area. Even entrance ticket is a bit expensive in my point of view, but after entering, we found tat it is worth to pay. Can drive your own car, but car entry ticket is quite expensive. By the way, there is choice for bycicle, loop bus, buggy. Discount ticket is avaible after 4pm. Stunning Thai architecture and decoration from all over country. Appreciate Thai art amd wood carving. Every place that need to take of shoe, that place is really clean. Inside many market that can buy sourvenir, food, and drink.
