Mini Siam

Mini SiamBuilt in 1986 and located in over 46,000 sq.m. of luxuriant, landscaped parkland just outside Pattaya, Mini Siam is divided into two sections; the original Mini Siam and Mini World. It is the world's third largest exhibition of miniature buildings and monuments after those in the Netherlands and Taiwan. There are more than 100 exquisitely crafted replicas of famous and historical buildings from all parts of the world, scaled down to one twenty-fifth of their original size.

The Royal Palace and other important monuments and memorials are displayed in Mini Siam. Among the other models shown here are many ornate Thai temples, such as the Temple of Dawn, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the ancient temples of Ayutthaya and Sukhotai. Mini Siam also houses Lilliputian copies of the Democracy Monument, the Bridge over the River Kwai, the harbour at Klong Toey and a reconstruction of an old style Thai village, featuring different types of wooden houses. These are just a few of the many unique Thai landmarks and architectural works that are presented here.

In Mini World guests can visit every continent and experience the world's tourist attractions in miniature. From Cambodia's Angkor Wat, London's Big Ben and the Tower, Paris' Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, New York's Statue of Liberty, the U.S.A.'s national memorial at Mount Rushmore with its gigantic sculpted heads of four presidents, to Germany's Cologne Cathedral, China's Temple of Heavens, Australia's Sydney Harbour Bridge, Italy's leaning Tower of Pisa and the Coliseum in Rome, Belgium's Atomium and Egypt's Abu Simbel, they are all here. There are also works of art, such as the Trevi Fountain of Rome and the Johann Strauss Memorial in Vienna.

Visitors can shop for souvenirs, dine in the compound's restaurant and enjoy go-karting on the mini race track. The whole complex looks absolutely sensational after dark with all the replicas illuminated and all in all Mini Siam is a first-rate day out for the whole family.

Mini Siam and Mini World are open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
