In many ways, Muang Boran is the best kept secret of Bangkok as few people know about it and even fewer travel guides mention it. Even many Bangkokians and local taxi drivers seem to have no idea where it is!
Shaped like the map of Thailand, the sprawling park houses more than 160 replicas, some of them full-scale, of ancient Thai architectural marvels found all over the country. And it's not just the outside of the buildings that look fantastic, the inside of the various palaces and villages are also immaculately fidel to details and decorations.
The Ancient City is the door opening to the heritage of Thai wisdom. With a wide range of architectural symbols combined with fine arts and craftsmanship, structural layout and natural environment that integrate harmoniously, The Ancient City creates kind of atmosphere that induces visitors to perceive and appreciate the continuity of history, cultures, religions, arts and customs of Thai people from dawn until now.
