Ancient City or Muang Boran
The Ancient City is a park spreading over 200 acres in the elephant-head shape of Thailand located on the outskirts of Bangkok City.
Replicas of all the country's most historically significant structures have been erected, in their correct geographic position.
At the Ancient City all buildings have been accurately and meticulously recreated. Some buildings are even genuine, moved here for preservation. Other genuine buildings have been transported to recreate traditional scenes of Thai life, such as The market of Yesteryear, the Floating Market and the Northern Thai Hamlet.
Another facet of Ancient City is the beautiful gardens, some of them portraying Thai legends with bronze horses flying over waterfalls and suchlike.
The Ancient City is the reflection of the variety of traditional cultures in the Thai Kingdom, demonstrated through a wide range of architectural symbols combined with fine arts and craftsmanship, structural layout and natural environment that integrate harmoniously.
This creates a kind of atmosphere that helps visitors appreciate the continuity of history, culture, religion, art and customs of Thai people from the beginning until now.
