This is a place to visit should you have time on your hands, and have already visited most other sites in Bangkok. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a good visit. One accompanied us through the museum, was extremely enthusiastic, and explained the artifacts in each building along with how the facility got built and... More

Easily approached from the BTS Skytrain station at "Phaya Thai". Take "Exit 4", then walk West along Sri Ayudhya Road for less than one hundred meters and the gates are on your right. Open seven days a week from 9am until 4pm. The entrance fee is a modest 100 Baht. This is a charming museum, mostly a series of old... More

This place was charming and had a newer exhibition area at the beginning with different styles of Thai pottery. The docents are on hand to be sure you take your shoes off where required and follow a specific direction for the visit. Whatever you do, don't push the button in the room with the mechanical Thai warriors before checking to... More

I was surprised to find 90 other reviews of Suan Pakkad on TripAdvisor after returning home—I imagined that my husband and I had “discovered” this amazing, marvelous, insightful hidden treasure! Silly me. Although those other travelers pretty well covered all you need to know, visit www.suanpakkad.com for complete descriptions of the eight authentic Thai houses and collections. Then…GO!!!

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
