Samut Prakan: Erawan Museum Discounted Admission Ticket

1. Samut Prakan: Erawan Museum Discounted Admission Ticket

Enjoy access to the Erawan Museum, located just outside Bangkok in Samut Prakan province. Find out how the museum was constructed as a symbol of peace and humanity, showcasing the arts, philosophies, religious diversity, and spirit of Asia. Receive a discounted ticket that allows you access at a specified date and time. When you arrive, marvel at the giant 3-headed elephant sculpture which makes up part of the exterior building. This attraction is the first and biggest hand-carved sculpture in the world. As you enter, discover how the museum is sectioned into 3 levels which symbolize the underworld, the earth, and heaven in a lot of religious and philosophical thinking. Start at the Suvarnabhumi Level, the underground level of the Elephant. Observe a showcase of ancient artifacts and porcelain - all part of the owner's prized collection - which represent 'the past'. Admire numerous artifacts including the Thai style ceramic ware of Benjarong. Also marvel at the figure of Naga, the snake-like god of the underworld who is the givers of waters in Buddhist belief. Next, head up to the Earth Section, the circular base that supports the weight of the elephant. See how the interior of the building incorporates many art forms of the world, including Western and Eastern styles in a truly unique form. Notice how the ceiling of the entrance is similar to the ceiling of the earth and the stained glass form the pattern of the Earth. Finally, arrive at the Cosmo Level which is the area inside the body of the elephant. Navigate along 2 passageways from the right and left feet of the elephants towards an area painted with stories of gods and goddesses floating in heaven. Once you've explored the interiors of this unique building, continue your tour to the outside areas. Take a stroll through the garden which is filled with rare tree species from all over Thailand, some of which have significance in Thai literature.

I would recommend everyone to get tickets online beforehand, it is much cheaper, especially as a tourist/foreigner. Here we paid 350 baht/ person. Locally, foreigners have different prices of 700 baht/person. But it was a very nice trip, we rented bikes. Was very nice even if 'the wheel was the wheel the wheel has no brakes'.

Excellent plan, the park is beautiful. It takes a whole day to go through it completely. A bicycle or golf cart is essential, I think the bicycle is the better option because the cart is charged per hour while the bicycle is the same price for the whole day.

Went in the afternoon at 4:30, hired bikes and cycled the museum. One of the best experiences, so peaceful and perfect temperature.

Wow super cool experience! Private chauffer and guide, amazing sights, laid back paced. Definitely a must do while in Bangkok.

To see, very interesting. A beautiful day in a beautiful setting.
