Ancient City is a park spreading over 200 acres in the elephant-head shape of Thailand. In their correct geographic position, replicas of all the country's most historically significant structures have been erected, some full-size but most scaled down. All have been accurately and meticulously recreated. Some buildings are even genuine, moved here for preservation.

Other genuine buildings have been transported to recreate traditional scenes of Thai life, such as The market of Yesteryear, the Floating Market and the Northern Thai Hamlet.

Another facet of Ancient City is the beautiful gardens, some of them portraying Thai legends with bronze horses flying over waterfalls and suchlike
