The area
Neighborhood: Dusit
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.

I see that there are only four reviews and they are all in Thai. That hardly surprises me as the only way you are likely to get to this place is by stumbling into it. And the guest book had only Thai names. In front of the museum is a gorgeous if rococo place called Chitralada Villa where one of the former Kings and his family lived. It is a gorgeous if eccentric building. Entry is free. The Thai girl intern students acted like they had never seen a farang before, and were falling over their feet to guide us around and practice their English. The Police Museum is around the back. Nice building, some interesting exhibits and history for those who care about the subject, but a yawn for others. The place is a bit haphazard, but is signed in English. Friendly, minimally bi-lingual staff. Free entry. The guy was so startled to see non-Thai faces that he ran after us to sign the guest book and his feet with only socks slipped on the polished floor. Inside both the villa and the museum are teak floors of incomparable beauty.
