Corner View – Miniature Worlds

Thailand used to be known as Siam.  And in our first year here I remember visiting  a place called Mini Siam just a couple of hours outside Bangkok.

And so for this Corner View I thought  Mini Siam would be very appropriate.  

But firstly meet Hanuman.  He is the first person you’ll meet as you enter Mini Siam.  He is known as the “magical god king but Hanuman will be for another post later.

Well these pictures are of some of the temples from the Kingdoms (Ayutthaya and Sukothai)  past here in Thailand.  Coolest thing is that I have been to these places here in Thailand – for real,  so these 1:25 scale miniatures are very impressive to me.

But that is not all. 

They also have a Mini Europe and some other very well known land marks.  I’m sure you CV participants out there will recognize many of them.

I know there are quite a few photo’s but I hope you have enjoyed them.

ha ha ha, why do human beings insist in making a mini version of every building they/we build? there's one of these parks here too.
ta for this :)

these are amazing!

Jewel said...

Wow. Those are so neat! I've seen miniature models buildings or cities a few different times, but nothing like a small world of significant buildings like these. Very neat!

None of those look like PPNG to me. Am I right?

kim said...

Yes, I sure did enjoy them! At first I thought you were confused, because the guy out front is so BIG! But then I saw behind the gates the very cool replicas of real things! Love the eiffel tower!
