This open-air museum is uniquely designed to reflect everything that is Thailand, with temples, historical buildings, ruins, and palaces.
This well-known attraction can be found South of Bangkok in the Samut Prakan province. While it is around 40 km from the city center of the Thai capital, it is well worth a visit and will be an experience quite unlike one can have at museums in Bangkok.
Spread over a massive 240 acres, this ancient city in Thailand is a mini Thailand, with more than 100 mini replicas of the nation’s most iconic buildings. If your itinerary planned by way of a Bangkok travel guide cannot fit in a visit to all the prominent landmarks of Thailand, then heading to Muang Boran is a mighty great idea as you can see all the buildings in one place.
Size doesn’t always matter
It might not be the same as looking at the originals, but according to online travel blogs like Travel Bangkok Now, these replicas are sized down to about one-third of the actual building and are worth taking a trip to.
Created by Khun Lek Viriyaphant, Muang Boran’s sole purpose is to preserve the heritage of Thailand in the years to come, for generations far into the future. The ancient city lets you get a whole Thai experience, with its history, culture and architecture, all in just a day. The place is usually calm and the vibes at the buildings feel real, albeit with tranquil and otherworldly charms.
