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.

Peach is our guide. She is very knowledegeable about all the places that we went. Since we only have one day in Bangkok, We decided to rent a private van and driver. We went to Grand Palace, reclining Buddha, Wat Arun. Khaosan road, and Chinatown. Peach made extra stops along the road to let is try different Bangkok fruits. She also took us to some souvenir shops. She also took us to a Michelin star restaurant for lunch and dinner. Time flies when you are having fun so I ended up paying extra 4 hours overtime. It’s worth every penny.

I used this service to and from the airport. Both times the drivers were punctual and very nice. They were professionals and I would absolutely use this service again. It was more than worth the price.

Both the Ancient City and the Erawan Museum were amazing. Our guide was right on time, and was very professional, courteous, and helpful the entire trip.

Easy to find our names upon arrival, and took all the stress out of getting to our hotel.

Very good, the SIM card is especially helpful extra and straight forward to use
