A little out of the way with no MRT/BTS nearby so we took a cab, and even then, had to give the cabby directions as it's really not well known. That explains why it was not very crowded even on a Sunday afternoon. The museum...More

Very interesting place to visit, if you are interesting in "old Bangkok." Interesting displays, cool garden. Free entry but you have to take off your shoes every time you go into a building (3 buildings, so off, on, off, on, off, on). The museum has...More

Very quaint look at Bangkok life for the middle classes in war time. The house is really nice and the furniture and displays are all very interesting. Very friendly staff. Free admission. Worth a look.

Nice middle class house (in fact three buildings). Furnishings and items from the 1950s so not that ancient. Interpretations mostly in Thai. Maybe of more interest to Thais than foreigners.

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
