A cultural mini city aims to preserve Siamese heritage
Simon L, from Singapore, TripAdvisor on May 2017
Simon travels around this site for 2.5 hours by using the buggy. He wondered why not so many tourists. On the other hand it was great that less people here since it’s a rare luxury to have the place almost all by yourself without other tourist appearing out of nowhere blocking your view of taking nice pictures. He like this place since he can really see and feel the effort of the founder of this ancient city founder trying to preserve all these heritage for the next generations.
Good to see
Seenivasan M, from India , TripAdvisor May 2017
It was just a wonderful place to visit. It has many creatures and local township models with floating market. An awesome creation of art works.
Bubueiwona , from Italy , TripAdvisor May 2017
We visited Muang Boran during our 10th trip to Thailand, it was just wonderful and reminded me Italia in Miniatura in Italy just much bigger and curated. Surprisingly the weather there was much fresher than Bangkok and it came to be a very interesting experience.
A Hidden Gem
Joann K, From United State, TripAdvisor Feb 2017
The site is absolutely magical. There was no one there when we visited. The most important feature for me was the effort to preserve Thai culture and heritage. If you have the time and transportation, it is a fabulous place to spend the day.
Almost the best museum I’ve ever been
P, From China, TripAdvisor 2017
I really love this kind of museum, some people complain that there are few real things , yes but so what? Otherwise, we won’t have a chance to see those stunning historical sites in our live, and they know what they are doing , just do great jobs, not just give perfunctory. 700b is a little bit expensive, but compared with works they did, it’s not a bid deal, and the place even now is in construction which is continued over 30,40 years. There is a rich group hold this place, I don’t think this place makes profits, because in the day when I was there, I saw only 3,4 groups( include Thai local people) , and less than 30, 50 tourists.
Outrageous Pricing Not Justified For This Attraction
Makawao22, United State , TripAdvisor Mar 2017
You get the feeling that you’re in Disneyland and the replicas superficial. What’s most infuriating is the pricing which is 700 baht per person. Yes, I could have decided to turn around and not pay the entrance fee. However, after traveling so far to get here I felt obliged to proceed. They also charged us 1,200 Baht (almost $40) to rent a golf cart for 3 hours. All in all this place is a definite rip-off.
Only go if you speak Thai
Andee110 , Milwaukee, TripAdvisor Jan 2017
Local guide on the trip point out every everything in Thai, event requested to speak in English. Half of stop , the audio guide did not work. They mansion the admission fee was expensive. They do not like the staffs which are not speak English and unpleasant. They also had lunch there and have been ill for the rest of the day.
Go see the real thing
Pequas , Australia, TripAdvisor May 2016
There isn’t much to say about this place. The only positive is that they have done a good job at imitating real places ,but you pay 700 THB do see them. Go visit Ayutthaya if you want to see something authentic and beautiful.
