Tips for you
the first time I visit this place, very exciting
For those who come to Pattaya this place is definitely a must. Though I know it's lit up at evening pretty nicely, I have visited it during the daytime, and I wasn't disappointed at all, so much to see, anyway. Once you're there, you got yourself a feeling as if you've traveled around the world :) The world's capitals, the famous architecture, it's all here in one place, from Eiffel Tower by the entrance to Tower Bridge and Lady Liberty in the middle :) A very nice place to explore with your family. You can't leave Mini Siam without taking dozens and even hundreds of pics there :) Overall, it's a very nice place. Working hours: 7am-10pm. Open daily. Upon arrival, when purchasing tickets (300 baht or something), you're getting a map with all those attractions on it. The place is pretty much divided into 2 parts: the 1st one is about Siam attractions. The 2nd one shows you the world's capitals' main attractions, palaces, and the like. It's definitely worth the money and your time, do not miss it when you're in Pattaya. As to the place location, it's pretty much along Sukhumvit Road, between Bangkok Hospital Pattaya and Go-Cart Road racing. It can easily be found for it's got a Giant Guardian by the entrance, you won't be able to miss it.
