Nice enough place, quiet gardens to relax and get away from the busy streets but let down by the ticket lady and the sour faced British lady (staff) who was sitting in the reception room. The look of utter contempt made me want to ask...More

This is the opposite of a big or flashy tourist attraction – which is part of its appeal for me! For 50 baht, you gain access to this modest complex of pavilions and gardens, which was the home of former politician and scholar MR Kukrit....More

This is a beautifully preserved home of a Thai prime minister who was evidently a man of arts and letters. Rather than building a Thai McMansion, Kukrit assembled a beautiful teak home out of several traditional homes that he relocated. And with modern amenities, from...More

I have visited many of the historical teak homes in the city and each one has its appeal. The descriptive panels point out that this is a house that shows real life- I think in comparison to Jim Thompson house. The gardens here are quite...More

We visited this place on Sunday morning by taking BTS to Chong Nonsi. It is walking distance from the BTS. Very beautiful conserved teak house with Khmer garden. Especially love the lily pond near at the back of the house. Good understanding about Mr Kurkrit’s...More

The residence is not large but it is quiet and off the beaten track. It offers a glimpse into what life in Bangkok could have been like in the past. It isn't large so seeing the actual residence and exhibist can be done rather quickly....More

Jim Thompson's house is no alternative - plus, in a way it's fake, made by an expat, whereas the combination of buildings here, by Prince Kukrit, who was part of this tradition both by birth and inclination, is real. A great place, feels as if...More

Not a major attraction, half an hour+ is sufficient to see round it, and if you have been to Jim Thompson House you could argue that you have covered it already. However there are too few (and constantly diminishing; Hemingway’s Asok being a prime example)...More

Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but
here you’ll find much more than international banks
and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the
small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find
yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much
slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you
can find in the town-house restaurants, office food
courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the

I cannot answer your question precisely. The closest MRT line is Chong Nonsi. From there, it is a walking distance as you cross the bridge over Sathorn. The soi will be on the left handside soon after the bridge.
