Ancient Siam located within a 30 minute drive from Bangkok on the Sukhumvit Road.
In the Province of Samut Prakan. Ancient Siam covers over 320 acres of land with
varied landscapes comparable in shape to the country of Thailand.
The site contains 116 Monuments and new ones are being added all the time. It gives
you an insight into Siam as it was then with many of the buildings being reconstructed
from original sites around Thailand. Many are reproductions based on the original
buildings, but so good are they, you would hardly tell that they were not the originals.
