  • Overview

    The Ancient City, or Muang Boran, is dubbed as the world's largest outdoor museum. Situated close to the Crocodile Farm in Samut Prakan province, the 80-hectare city features 109 scaled-down copies of Thailand's famous monuments and architectural attractions. The grounds of the historic Ancient City correspond roughly to the shape of the Thai Kingdom, with each of the monuments lying at their correct places geographically. Some of the buildings are life-size replicas of existing or former sites, while others are on a one-third scale.

    The replicas were constructed with the assistance of experts from the National Museum to ensure historical accuracy. Outstanding works include the former Grand Palace of Ayutthaya (destroyed in the Burmese invasion of 1767), sculptures from the Thai epic story, the Ramakien, and a fabulous display of the Royal Barge procession.

    Learn about Thailand’s rich and fascinating culture and history at the largest outdoor museum in the world - Ancient City or Muang Boran.

    Itinerary

    This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility- you can spend as much time at any of the places you visit, as per your preference.

    You will be picked up from your hotel/directly from the airport and taken in either a coach or private air conditioned vehicle (depending on the chosen option) to Muang Boran or the Ancient City, the largest open-air museum in the world. The museum stands approximately 33 kilometres east of central Bangkok, and roughly corresponds to the shape of Thailand. A local English-speaking guide will accompany you.

    The museum is massive and is the best way to see Thailand’s religious and royal sites within a day. You will see excellent replicas of ancient Thailand and buildings in traditional vernacular architecture are plentiful. See the former Grand Palace of Ayutthaya (destroyed in the Burmese invasion of 1767), Phimai Sanctuary in Nakhon Ratchasima, and Wat Khao Phra Viharn on the Cambodian border. Ancient City also has sculptures from the Thai epic story, the Ramakien, a display of the Royal Barge procession, and a model Thai village in which craftsmen produce ceramics, paper umbrellas and lacquer items.

    At the end of the tour, you will be taken back to the original starting point.
