Mini Siam in Pattaya
Attractions in Pattaya0
Mini Siam in Pattaya can take you around the world not in 80 days – more like 80 minutes, if you’re quick! The park behind the Pattaya Boxing World stadium is 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. It is the perfect place to try and play Gulliver’s Travel.
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 Highlights
Stepping through the entrance of Mini Siam Pattaya, you will get a bird’s eye view of the world’s Eastern and Western hemispheres. The Eiffel Tower’s industrial spire and L’arc de Triomphe’s carved ‘monolith’ stand in contrast with the round blue tiles of Beijing’s Altar of Heaven (Tian Tan) and the candy-coloured domes of St. Petersburg’s Church of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Equally as diverse, the ‘waterfront’ spans the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, from the Sydney Opera House and Singapore’s Merlion to London’s Tower Bridge and the Statue of Liberty in New York.
Cross the narrow stream dividing the two zones and you enter Thailand. Journey from the pre-civilisation to the Kingdoms of Lanna, Sukhothai, Ayutthaya to Rattanakosin (Bangkok). Highlights include the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Anantasamakhom Throne Hall, the Bridge over the River Kwai, Sukhothai’s Wat Mahathat to modern infrastructures, such as the Rama IX cable-suspended bridge and Hualamphong Train Station.
Entry to Mini Siam Pattaya costs 250 baht for adults and 120 baht for children (for foreign visitors. Thais or expatriates with valid work permits or driving licenses can get in a little cheaper).
