Explore a Floating World at the Ancient City

Large arrow left

The Ancient City, or Muang Boran, is one of the world’s largest outdoor museums. It features a 200-acre city with 109 scaled down copies of Thailand’s most famous monuments and architectural attractions all in one place. Located in Samut Prakan Province near Bangkok, the site is huge and sprawling but you can rent a golf cart to drive around the property at your leisure. The floating market in the picture is a lot cleaner and less chaotic than the one it's modeled on in Bangkok!
