Full description
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.

Excellent trip - great driver

If you are a history or architecture enthusiast, as I am, this is the perfect trip for you. An extraordinary collection of replicas of temples and houses and ruins, plus an under construction floating market exhibit and a collection of royal barge examples. I must admit, however, my trip was made even better because of my extraordinary driver, whose name unfortunately I cannot remember, who took such incredible care of me from pick up to drop off. I highly recommend this tour, particularly if you are interested in seeing as many examples of temples and Thai-architecture as possible. If there is a downside, I will say there’s not really much to do but look at them. There is nothing interactive, there are no “exhibits” per se, or rides. This is not an amusement park. It is an outdoor museum, and if you approach it with that in mind, you will have an extraordinary time. We ended up taking the car through the park. Bikes and golf carts are also available and might’ve been a fun option
