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.

We spent two consecutive days with our guide, Elena. In the first day she organized a taxi for the whole day and took us first to a train market and then to the Ampawa Floating market (Sat and Sun only) about 1h drive south of BKK. The Ampawa market in the evening is a very pleasant and busy place, with shops, restaurants, boats and vendors catering for locals and tourists. We took a 1h longtail boat tour from the market around the neighboring canals and communities. The second day Elena took us to the Chatuchak and the Flower markets with a break for a very tasty lunch in a pleasant restaurant. Both days' activities were perfectly organized and executed. We had great time with Elena, who is very knowledgeable, open and friendly, with great organizational skills. Couldn't have spent our time better than that. Highly recommended!

We had a really nice Guide who gave us a lot of information and she teached us a lot about the Thai culture. We wanted to see the canals, so she called a boat for us and gave us the information about the prices and we could decide if it is worth the money. We also had a lot of Thai food in local markets, super cheap and very good. Thank you, would do this Tour again!!

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.

This is like going with your bike through an open museum, truly breathtaking to see!
