Tucked away a short walk off Sukhumvit Road surrounded by high-rise buildings is this lovely small museum offering an insight into the traditions and rituals of the people of Lanna (13-18th century kingdom, now Northern Thailand). A hidden treasure I doubt many visit; in fact I had the place all to myself, literally. I did the honest thing and left the 100 baht entry fee on the table before leaving.

Visit the best designed and most desirable small museum in Bangkok. Hidden beneath the modern skyscrapers you'll find this pearl. You'll learn a lot about the Thai culture in a one hour visit. More than worth your spare time, and because of the little number if visitors: this secret deserves many more.

If not mistaken, the admission fee was 100 baht. I was the only visitor at that time. I am not sure how many people visit Kamthieng House in a day. The greeter played a VCD showing me about Siam, the houses, the tools, the rooms and local products, until the meaning of tattoos and the rice.
