Ancient City Muang Boran Ticket with Private Transfer Option

2. 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.
