This is set within the grand palace and is said to be an exact replica of the temple in Cambodia. I liked it from the point of view it is exactly to scale (apparently) which means the real one must be massive! Good to see and worth seeking out if in the grand palace.

Wow! The Mini Angkor Wat is an impressive and pretty amazing, carved model of the famous Cambodian Temple. It must have took a lot of time and effort to get it as details as possible.

*) Miniature of Angkor Wat, the largest Hindu temple in the world. *) This model is located on the side of the Emerald Buddha temple, which in itself is located in the middle of the Grand Palace, and is not a site in itself, but rather viewed when walking to the Emerald Buddha temple which is the highlight of the...

Having been to the real Angkor Wat, I can’t decide if this amazing little model in Bangkok’s Grand Palace should be seen before or after the real thing. For before, the model is impressive and certainly has a huge amount of detail, and it might just convince a few people to see the real thing. For after, Angkor Wat’s attraction... More

Can't believe the amount of detail that went into this mini ruins. Great sight to see. It's great to hold your camera down the bottom of the stairs pointing to the doorway and take a photo, looks exactly like the real thing.

I don't understand the attraction of a small replica of an ancient temple. Angkor Wat is not particularly beautiful but it is still interesting due to its scale and history (both of which this much smaller replica version are missing).

We were very surprised when we came across the awesome miniature model of the famous Angkor Wat temple in Wat Phra Kaew temple complex at the Grand Palace as it was not mentioned in our guide book. The miniature model is intricately carved from stone and is an accurate replica of the original Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia – which... More

This is found at the Grand Palace and is quite large but you won't be spending much time looking at it as there is so much more to see around.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
