This city in Bangkok opens its soft doors for you to enter the giant world of Thai heritage and wisdom. This city shelters the Thai mastery of craftsmanship, architecture and nature. Welcome to the Ancient City, Bangkok.
Take a leisure stroll in Ancient City, and you will have covered the whole Thailand in one day. If you are looking for a nearby place to take lodging, a Bangkok Serviced Apartment like Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor Bangkok will be a convenient choice. It is a matter of 40 minutes from Suwanabhumi Airport.
Upon entering the city, you will feel the ancient atmosphere almost intoxicating. Actually you will require hardly any intoxicant, because its ambience itself is an intoxicant. You will be drinking the wine of Thailand’s rich history, culture, religion and art. The city’s structure is designed in such a way that it resembles the ancient Thai lifestyle. This is a unique opportunity, as what you see in today’s Thailand is a high-gear fast-paced techno-savvy lifestyle.
Thailand is among the few countries that can boast of a glorious past. Just like what the founder of Ancient City, Lek Viriyaphant Lek Viriyaphant, said, ‘If man has no knowledge of the past, he is nothing but a vessel without a rudder on the high seas,’ the country not only celebrates its culture but also invites the foreigners to witness them in their historical form. So Ancient City seems to be Viriyaphant’s ‘rudder’ solution to the mankind at home as well as abroad. Peculiar and strange it may seem, but Viriyapahant’s efforts have come a long way in the portrayal of Thailand’s beautiful history.
Spread across 320 acres, this elegant cityscape may resemble heaven on earth for some. You need patience-mixed enthusiasm to discover the whole Ancient City. Take your time to appreciate each and every wonderful feature of Thai culture. You will never regret the time spent.
