  • A really lovely day out exploring the landmarks of Thailand, you could spend many hours here and not get bored! Absolutely beautiful replicas. Definitely recommend renting a golf buggy to get around. We ate at one of the restaurants near the entrance and it was the best Thai food I've ever eaten, the portion sizes were huge! But, and this is a huge BUT.... We were really disappointed to see two beautiful elephants chained by their ankles, with a tiny chain. You have this vast, wonderful land, why are you keeping elephants in a small area in tiny chains? It's very unethical and not good practice. You could do so much for them with all the land that Ancient city owns, please do better. I can guarantee you would get more tourists if you have a sanctuary of some sort and treat the elephants as they deserve to be treated. I was really torn about the review to give because of the elephants, I have given a 2 because it was an excellent experience that I was very impressed with...apart from seeing the elephants.
  • A very cool tourist place. Many interesting locations and beautiful nature. Among the locations are many replicas of real temples and historical buildings, lots of large sculptures and monuments, and even a ghost museum. Golf carts, e-bikes and regular bikes are available for rent. My girlfriend and I rented a bike and rode around the park for about 4 hours. Renting a bicycle cost 150 baht, regardless of the time of use. It is better to eat at the beginning of the park, because most of the food establishments in the park are currently closed. It is also better to order tickets in advance, so it will be twice as cheap, we paid 350 baht for 1 ticket. You can easily get to the 36 route taxi to the terminal stop of the green metro line.
