  • Beautiful, a must see in Bangkok. Make sure you get your hands on them headphones as the guides hardly know any English at all. Also it turns out it's half price after 4 o clock. I would recommend a tram tour if riding a bicycle in the heat is not your cup of tea.
  • Ancient Siam is a park constructed in the shape of Thailand. This park features scale down versions of Thailand's famous monuments and architectural attractions. Entry gee for foreigners is 700 Bhat/person, which is way too much. If you want to save money, you should reach this place at 4 PM. Entry fee from 4 - 7 PM is 350 Bhat/person. Bicycle and audio guide device are included in the entry fee. You will need at least 4 - 6 hours to visit all the places.
  • Fabulous day out. I've lived in Thailand for seventeen years and this was one one of the most immaculate restorations/recreations I've been too. Hire a golf-cart!
  • Good place to spend all day with family. You can ride a bicycle or use electric train. Replication of all Thailand map in one park. For Thai and foreigners with work permit 50% off.
  • A fun experience. Watch out for the sun, though, as it gets really hot. I have been a few times and my daughter loves it. They are constantly building new structures albeit slowly. I'd recommend renting a bike or a golf cart if you're with young children or the elderly.
