Ancient City (Muang Boran), Samut Prakan, about 33km from Bangkok. Featured 116 replicas of traditional heritage of the present and old ruins of Temples, Palaces, Floating Market, Villages from different states of Thailand, Artcrafts, Artifacts, Buddha Statues, Sala of 80 Yogi, Thailand's Royal Barge and Monuments from various countries; Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Burma. The Ancient City spanned about 320 hectares of land. The founder is an eccentric Thai millionaire, Mr Lek Viriyaphant (1914-2000).

It is amazing to see such great outdoor museum of this size. I should say, this is one of the great wonders ever achieved by one great man with unselfish thought. He did this for Thailand and for tourists who knows about it. It is worthwhile visiting this Ancient City, brought back good memories.

Golf carts and bicycles can be hired for moving around the park, and private vehicles are also allowed with a fee.
