  • Highly recommend you avoid this place. It used to be good but not anymore. The place is being renovated at the moment so you can't see a lot of the exhibits. They don' t tell you this when you buy your ticket. Way over priced for all there is to see here, they charge double for foreigners but no one speaks English so its very hard to find your way around.
  • This place is a must! Really beautiful and inviting - worth at least 3-4 hours. It is pricey (750 pp) and they charge double if you are a tourist and not Thai. I find it cheeky! Still, worth the money. Enjoy ;)
  • I went along December 2016. It was easy for mt to get here as I had rented a scooter. Would hate to guess how much or how long it would take by taxi. Once I got my ticket (700 baht for farang) and an audio guide i was told i could either,walk round,use a cycle or get on the tour bus. I went for the tour bus and it went around the park and stopped at various points so i could get off and wander around. There is lots to see here and some interesting buildings and items within. I was surprised how good it was. Half way round and we stopped at the little floating market and there is a little restaurant if you want something to eat. I carried on by cycle and saw more that way. I enjoyed my visit.
  • 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.
