The ancient city in sumat prakan has to be seen to believe. Scaled down versions of temples around Thailand are recerated there. Great day out as there is so much to see..... Bikes are free as the site is huge.

Easy to go by bts (Sailuat-E22 station) then take taxi or local transport (Song-taw) for 5 km. The admission fee is just 350 Baht(9 dollar). Very wide area and very beautiful for take photos.
