This place is a little hard to find. You need to watch out as you're going down Soi 3 from Sathorn Road for the single brown heritage sign clinging by a thread to the post on the left hand side. The tiny Soi you need to go down is on the right. Or, from Chong Nonsi station, continue down the skywalk to the buses (BRT) and then take Soi 9 on that road.
The house is small and can easily be seen within a hour. It hasn't been changed much since its owner lived there. There's a "been there since the 60's smell" hanging in several of the rooms. If you're interested in Khon theatre or how the 13th President of Thailand and founder of the Thai Rath newspaper spent the last 20-30 years of his life, or want to see the bed of Rama V this is the place to come. It's really more of an afterthought or something to do if you're in the area than a "must see." I'd been in Thailand a year before I ticked this place off my list of places to go at the weekend. It's worth a look but if you have limited time in Bangkok, don't go out of your way unless you have a specific interest in Mr Kukrit.
