Mini Siam Park in Pattaya

Now the park is thematically divided into the actual"Mini-Siam" and the so-called "Mini-Europe". In the Thai part of the collection are many beautiful historical temples. Next to each miniature there is a plate with a description, but where the location of the object is indicated in few places, so you have to google where it is located. Here you can come to find out what the Thai sights then want to see live. And it is also fun to find those miniatures that you have already seen in real life.

Mini Siam is one of the oldestPattaya attractions, it was built in 1986. Now its area is 4.5 hectares. The territory of the park is well-groomed, with neat paths and lawns, flowerbeds, ponds and neatly trimmed bushes, next to each layout there is a sign with a name and a brief description in Thai and English, and in the evenings there is a beautiful backlight.

That part of the layouts that relates to Siam,1:25 scale and includes very interesting and detailed copies of architectural structures of Thailand (Siam) and neighboring states. For example, there is a Cambodian Angkor Wat. At the same time, the park includes both ancient buildings, for example, from the historical park in Ayutthaya, and modern ones, like the Bangkok Victory Monument. A copy of which, by the way, is the oldest in the park.

As I understood it, some models used to beacting. Trains went by rail, airplanes moved along the airport, lights blinked and burned. Perhaps even some cars were moving. But judging by the state of these models, nothing is already working, rusting, covered with a century-old layer of dust. A pity, I always loved railways and similar layouts, I would have looked with joy.

Some later copies of different worldarchitectural masterpieces are made larger and not very detailed. There are such “hits” as the Eiffel Tower or Tower Bridge, the Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the non-European Sydney Opera House, the Statue of Liberty, the Egyptian temple, etc. This, of course, is not a complete list of layouts that can be seen in the park. Russia is represented by St. Basil's Cathedral and a sculpture on Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd.

In general, the park for visiting is interesting, there are usually not very many visitors here, you can safely walk along well-groomed paths surrounded by lawns and take pictures. There are benches with a shadow.
