Mini Siam Miniature World Park
Mini Siam is the famous miniature park home to nearly 100 replicas of famous sites worldwide – from the Temple of the Emerald Buddha to the Statue of Liberty – all displayed at a scale of 1:25. Founded in 1985 as part of a research project, Mini Siam’s 46,400-sqm area is divided into two distinct zones, namely Mini Siam and Mini Europe (which is actually the rest of the world), separated by a small serpentine ‘river’ that you can just step across. The vast manicured grounds, peppered with water features and man-made sculptures modelled after the world’s iconic landmarks, feel like a true global village.

Mini Siam has been designed with a great attention to details and is a fun and interesting way to spend an afternoon. The landscaped gardens with its various water features help with the heat, and there are free umbrellas available at reception if you need extra shade from the sun. If you prefer a cooler temperature, visiting the park in the morning or in the evening when the temperature drops and the monuments light up is the best time to come.
