WHY THIS TOUR?

Venturing through the Kingdom of Thailand and see all its wonders, natural marvels and buildings and temples of significance requires more than your average holiday. The country is well-known for its kaleidoscope of interesting sites and landmarks, found in almost every single province. To alleviate the time and stress to see it all, Muang Boran is the solution: earmarked to bring all aspects of its cultural and spiritual monuments to the public, Ancient City gives you a full view of the main landmarks in Thailand, constructed to scale and as accurate as its original.

HALF DAY | Ancient City

08:00-12:00
-
14:00-18:00

Your guide and driver will pick you up for a 3.5 hour trip, covering all directions of the Thai Kingdom. This fascinating attraction, approximately 30 kilometers away from Bangkok, is created in the exact shape of the kingdom and is also known as ‘Muang Boran’.

Set in 320-acres of stunning landscaped gardens, the open-air museum Ancient City contains 116 replicas of Thailand’s  most  historically  significant  sites,  positioned  in  a  precise scaled-down geographical  version  of  the  entire  country.  All major monuments ranging from one third of original to actual size and even a 50 meters high mini-mountain representing Khao Prasat Phra Viharn in the east of Thailand have been reconstructed, and millions have been invested to rebuild the ancient Reception Hall of Ayutthaya.

Visitors can also view models of buildings lost to history that have been faithfully recreated for posterity. The Ancient City  will  leave  visitors  culturally  and  spiritually  enlightened  about  15  centuries  of the history, art, religions and customs of the Siam of old, to present day Thailand. Constructed by an art-loving philanthropist dealer, Muang Boran provides an excellent introduction to the country’s architecture, including reproductions of buildings, which no longer exist.

It is possible to rent bicycles or make use of electrical carts to ride along the many sights; fees of such nature will be on the expenses of the clients and can be paid on spot. Your guide will tell you shortly about all the sights of the Kingdom that are represented here before we head back to your booked Bangkok hotel.
