Mini Siam Pattaya is not just one of Pattaya’s original family attractions but is also on the cities longest running visitor sights. Established in 1986 Mini Siam has been a regular spot of tourists ever since.
With over 29 Rai, close to 11 acres of land, this is also one of Pattaya’s largest attractions. The land is separated into two distinct zones. Mini Siam and Mini Europe.
Mini Siam you would assume would focus solely on Thailand, however it seems to be more South East Asia in general. Visitors will have the opportunity to visit miniature scale models of some of the ASEANS best known heritage sites, such as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Angkor Wat, and Bangkok’s very own Democracy Monument. Mini Siam is the oldest section of the park, in fact Democracy monument was the first model constructed here.
Where as the Mini Siam section does not focus on Thailand, The mini Europe section does not focus on Europe either. A more apt name for this would be Mini Rest of the World. As here you will not only find replicas of some of Europe’s best sights, but also sights from the America’s and the rest of the world. The mini scale replicas in this section include, Mount Rushmore, Statue of Liberty, Pyramids, Sydney Opera house, The Eiffel tower and the Colosseum.
The gardens and grounds here are well maintained and very easy to navigate . The smooth and wide access ways make strolling with a pushchair very easy. There are a few scattered trees around the attraction, but that is about it as fare a shade goes. As such the best time to visit is early morning or late afternoon, early evening. These unsurprisingly are also the busiest times. Even during peak times the park is never overcrowded and feels very spacious, you just wait a little longer to get your uninterrupted photo opportunity.
