Journey the length and breadth of Thailand in just half a day. A short drive away from downtown Bangkok and one reaches the grounds of the Ancient City. Created in the exact shape of the kingdom, visitors can view scale doubles of the real sights.
What to Expect
Your guide and driver will pick you up for a 3.5-hour trip, covering all directions of the Thai Kingdom. This fascinating attraction, approximately 30 kilometers away from Bangkok, is created in the exact shape of the kingdom and is also known as "Muang Boran."
Set in 320 acres of stunning landscaped gardens, the open air museum Ancient City contains 116 replicas of Thailand’s most historically significant sites positioned in a precise scaled down geographical version of the entire country. All major monuments ranging from one third of the original to the actual size and even a 50 meters high mini mountain representing Khao Prasat Phra Viharn in the east of Thailand has been reconstructed, and millions have been invested to rebuild the ancient Reception Hall of Ayutthaya.
Visitors can also view models of buildings lost to history that have been faithfully recreated for posterity. The Ancient City will leave visitors culturally and spiritually enlightened about 15 centuries of the history, art, religions and customs of the Siam of old to present day Thailand. Constructed by an art-loving philanthropist dealer, Muang Boran provides an excellent introduction to the country's architecture including reproductions of buildings which no longer exist.
It is possible to rent bicycles or make use of electrical carts to ride along the many sights. Fees of such nature will be on the expenses of the clients and can be paid on the spot. Your guide will tell you briefly about all the sights of the kingdom that are represented here before you head back to your Bangkok hotel.
