The Ancient City aka Fake Thailand

The Ancient City aka Fake Thailand


The park is in the shape of Thailand and all the attractions are miniatures of the real attractions within Thailand. I saw every important sight in Thailand in one day (at least the fake version). I also obtained the worst sunburn (and funniest) of my life.


The Ancient City, also known as Muang Boran, is both entertaining and historically interesting. This 320-acre outdoor museum is an architectural reflection of Thailand’s glorious past. Nearly a hundred of the country’s most important historical landmarks and monuments, including palaces and temples, have been reconstructed as miniature replicas. Muang Boran also houses several ethnological displays of artifacts and antiques, including rural arts, ancient tools, and hunting equipment, evidence of the long-term survival of a native culture.

My friend and I spent the day biking around the sights – from the fake North of Thailand to the very deep fake South. They even had a section with deer. Which we could feed. And attempt to not be bitten by.

And introducing the WORST & COOLEST sunburn of my Life:

I know you’re impressed.

Would you go to a park with miniature replicas of all important sights in a country?
