This was once a palace of a King Rama V's prince. The place is nice and quiet and not far from shopping area. I wish I could have more time to sit and relax here, but I ran out of time.

Easy to get there: 200 meters from BTS station Phaya Thai - just follow the orchid covered trees of Sri Ayudhaya Road, after 100 meters you'll see the houses. Opening hours: daily 9 am - 4 pm - entrance fee: 100 baht (trust me, that's great value) A great ensemble of traditional Thai houses - connected with wooden sky bridges... More

While I don't recall the exhibits inside the pavilions that make up the complex to be all that memorable (Cham or some other long forgotten people's relics or something...), the complex itself is a green oasis and a nice collection of traditional Thai pavilions (like the more famous Jim Thompson house) that gives you a sense of what Bangkok must...

This little palace is very interesting. The guided tour for 100 baht is informative. Take along some water and snacks and enjoy the garden.

A five minute walk from Phaya Thai BTS along Thanon Si Ayutthaya Rd, next to the Deja Hospital, as this quaint museum with a unique collection of ancient artifacts, beautiful wooden traditional Thai-style houses and immaculately kept gardens. There is a nominal entrance fee, which gets you a guided tour and a free bamboo fan, but I thought it was... More

Around 10 mins walk from Phaya Thai BTS, its a small low rise museum with a few wooden buildings that houses various exhibits. I find some of the royal paraphernalia interesting and looking at how lived when they resided here. Other than that, this takes a minimal amount of time to cover and is good if you like a bit...

A good way for people not having enough time to visit the "classic" museums, to have at least seen a nice and interesting one, in a peaceful atmosphere, avoiding the crowd! N.B: No photos inside...;)

I've wanted to see this museum on past trips but finally went. It was a good 1/2 hour walk from my hotel, Century Park but worth it. the hotel is btween the Phaya Thai Hospital and the Phaya Thai BTS Skytrain Station. It's a very inexpensive entry fee and very nice quiet place to visit. You first see some of... More

A visit to this museum is quite inexpensive and the grounds are pretty, but the museum has seen better days. During my visit, many of the exhibits were dirty, not working or closed. I would not have chosen to see this museum, but I was travelling with a friend who had been to Bangkok several times before and wanted to... More
