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

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
