Mini Siam was opened in 1986 by Kasem Kasemkietsakul, a man who traveled extensively for both business and pleasure, and had a keen interest in architecture. So keen was he in fact, he decided to build a world of his own, hence Mini Siam & Mini Europe was opened in Pattaya as an educational tourist attraction.
Where is Mini Siam?
Mini Siam is located at 387 Moo 6 Sukhumvit Road. From the Central (Klang) Pattaya Road junction it’s 2.7 kilometers to the north. Watch out for Pattaya Bangkok hospital on the northbound side of the highway, Mini Siam is almost directly across the road from it, just very slightly north.
Getting to Mini Siam
You can take a blue baht bus along south, central or north Pattaya roads to Sukhumvit highway, then wave down a white baht bus and get off at Mini Siam, both baht bus rides will cost 10 baht per person. NOTE: There’s a footbridge over the highway before Pattaya Bangkok Hospital, if you get off there and cross the highway it’s about a 400 meter walk to Mini Siam.
NOTE: You can actually take any color of baht bus along Sukhumvit highway, blue, pale blue, red, green, but white buses are less likely to deviate or detour off the highway. If your baht bus does leave the highway, get off and wait for another one.
Here’s a little more information about using baht buses and getting around Pattaya.

What is Mini Siam in Pattaya?
Mini Siam and Mini Europe are 2 zones in a 11.4 acre park/garden exhibiting miniature replicas of famous landmarks and historically famous buildings in Thailand, Europe, and around the world.
At Mini Siam you can can do a whistle-stop tour of famous places around the world, including the ‘Democracy Monument’ in Bangkok, the ruins of Ayutthaya, Angkor Wat, The Arc De Triumph, Mount Rushmore, The Statue of Liberty, The Eiffel Tower and relics from Egypt, Rome and many more.
It’s a great place to explore, get a few selfies, and if you have kids of school age – they might even give you a few history and geography lessons, lol.
Drinks and snacks are available at the sheltered cafe area, also seating and shelter from the sun if you happen to make your visit in the daytime. Mini Siam also has good wheelchair access and well maintained, easy to follow paths around all the features.
Mini Siam Open Times
Mini Siam is open every day from 07:00 to 21:00. I’ve read a few reviews of Mini Siam which recommend visiting at night when the exhibits are floodlit, and temperatures more pleasant.
