I have been here before and there is plenty to see,you could spend several hours looking at all the attractions. It is gruelling in the heat of the day though. There are places to eat in the water market and stalls throughout. This time however we opted for half price option which is after 4pm, for a quick wiz round... More

I was really looking forward to visiting and enjoying this attraction. Stopped here after visiting the Erawan Museum, which is probably a 30 minute taxi ride away. The sprawling property (more than 300 acres) does have a large variety of replica attractions that are found throughout Thailand. However, you get the feeling that you're in Disneyland and the replicas superficial.... More

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... More

Very extensive grounds and it was definitely worth a visit, without being spectacular. If you go to the last Skytrain station, Bearing, you can easily get a taxi there.

If you want to see and learn more about Thailand, take beautiful pictures of your trip, have some rest in quiet place, far from city rustle, this place is a must go. You will be amazed what a great history Thailand has. Make sure you go inside the buildings to see the beautiful decorations. The park is definitely worth visiting... More

It was exciting to see a lot of the structures and they were finely replicated but there was missing some more general information about the different monuments and where they were/are located in Thailand. It was a good thing that we could rent the golf caddies for getting around. Quite expensive entrance fee though.

The free shuttle bus did not turn up to the bus stop as outlined on the website, so I had to take a taxi to the park, I was very disappointed. However I still enjoyed the park.

The ancient city recreates a lot of Thailand's stunning buildings on one site the same size as a golf course. The entry cost (700thb) is not cheap by Thai standards but reasonable. This includes the hire of a bicycle to get around the attraction. When we visited it was not very busy but perhaps due to it being a weekday.... More

This park is located south of Bangkok and is well worth the visit. It is a large piece of land where a wealthy Thai has built reproductions of the major monuments (temples) in Thailand as well as preserved some of the old and no longer existing house structures and villages. The site is absolutely magical. There was no one there... More
