- See the famed Three-Headed Elephant sculpture
- Explore one of the world’s largest outdoor museums
Just outside central Bangkok lie two of the city’s most unique museums, which you can discover with this excellent full-day tour led by a local guide. Begin at the famous Erawan Museum, a treasure-trove of Thai and wider Asian culture, which houses a priceless collection of antiquities and some gigantic architecture, including the three-headed bronze elephant outside. You’ll pause for lunch before heading to the Ancient City nearby, created by the same eccentric millionaire who built the Erawan Museum.
The Ancient City is an immense open-air museum built in the shape of Thailand, where you can wander around more than 100 versions of the country’s most iconic landmarks and historic monuments,most of which are in their geographically correct place. Some of the models are life-size, others are scaled down, and you can even hire bikes here to get around the 200-acre park if you want. So if you’d like to see the whole of Thailand in just one day, this Bangkok gift experience is for you!
