Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

1. Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

Ancient Siam (also known as Ancient City, Mueang Boran) is a park constructed under the patronage of Lek Viriyaphant and spreading over 200 acres (0.81 km2) in the shape of Thailand. The founder's original idea was to create a golf course with miniatures of Thailand's historically significant structures spread around the course. During his research, he found most structures severely damaged and decided instead to create new miniatures, to save the original structures when possible, or to re-create them full size or scaled down. Ancient Siam is dubbed as the world's largest outdoor museum. Located in Samut Prakan province, the 320-hectare "city" features 116 structures of Thailand's famous monuments and architectural attractions. The grounds of Ancient Siam correspond roughly to the shape of the Kingdom, with the monuments lying at their correct places geographically. Some of the buildings are life-size replicas of existing or former sites, while others are scaled down. The replicas were constructed with the assistance of experts from the National Museum to ensure historical accuracy. Outstanding works include the former Grand Palace of Ayutthaya (destroyed in the Burmese invasion of 1767), Phimai Sanctuary in Nakhon Ratchasima, and Wat Khao Phra Viharn on the Cambodian border. You can select to explore this remarkable outdoor museum by tram, walk or bike for free. Alternatively, pay a little extra to get the golf cart, and drive around to save time and enjoy more.

The park is magnificent. A visit is required. The best route to get to it is along the green metro line to the Kheha terminus. Then, right at the station, take tuk-tuk No. 36 and get to the main entrance to the park. In the park, first of all, go to the ticket office and present your voucher. You will be given a sticker on clothes and a map of the park. You can start the inspection. The bike is free and it seemed to us the easiest inspection of the park. The whole park took us 7 hours. There is an option to rent an electric car (200 baht / hour), and you can also travel by tram. The electric cart is expensive, and the tram stops only at certain stops and passes many interesting objects. In the park there are places where you can eat / drink. Inspection is best to start from the very opening of the park at 9 am, until it is hot. Or, conversely, in the afternoon (the park is open until 19 hours), but in this case you will not have time to see all the objects.

Very nice discovery

The site is very pleasant and offers magnificent landscapes and places to visit. Very practical family bike ride that allows you to visit the site at your own pace. To discover without hesitation

Really enjoyed this visit. A very picturesque place. A great overview of the country's history, architecture and culture. A perfect place for taking Instagram photos.

Very well done Pleasant and easy to visit even on foot without rushing because of the heat
