A lot of sour grapes here. So what if the entry price is a little steep at 100 baht and locals pay less. It is their patrimony and if you are rich enough to fly here you can pay three bucks. The lines and architecture, walls and floors are stunning, there is no wood as attractive as polished teak. Inside... More

I visited this house as part of a visit to Phrae and Nan last week. Upon entering the grounds I immediately became suspicious as the price of entry was 40bt for Thai and 100bt for foreigners. In Thai terms this is a complete rip off. I explained to the lady at the desk that I have lived in Thailand for... More

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.

I live in Thailand, came here and gave them my Thailand drivers license, was told to pay 40B instead of 20B. I told her I live and work here, and was told more strongly...Forty baht! I declined to go in, but my Burmese friend walked up and paid 20B. So then I said, you should change your sign, which says... 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 ugly. It is very dark inside a crammed full of tacky decorations and shrines to... More

Pratubjai House is reputed to be Thailand's second largest teak house. Phrae is particularly well known for its teak forests and the house was built in 1972-1977 by Kitja Chaivannakoopt using teak recycled from nine existing teak houses in Phrae. It includes 130 large teak logs, each over 300 years old, used as house supports. It was opened to the... More
