An interesting experience to visit this family mansion constructed by a businessman anxious to construct a huge timber house without decimating the nearby forests. The usual annoyance about prices - 40 baht for Thais and 100 baht for foreigners with only a few descriptions of...More

We visited only one of the so called Teak Houses in Phrae and were very glad it was this one. The building is very attractive and much of it is open. There is a description of the story behind the house given as a pamphlet...More

Fascinating structure. Friendly owners showed us around. Great deals in the shop of quality items that Americans do not have access to easily, crocodile belts, elephant tail bracelets for example!

I rarely review sights, mostly hotels. But this is a total rip-off. Avoid at all costs. Good thing I didn't pay for the entrance as no one was at the booth at that time. They should just close this to save everyone of their time.

Apparently the name means "impressive house", more like depressive. It is a house made from parts of 9 old houses all put together and it just looks like a great big barn with a few Thai decorations on the roof, just kind of big and...More
