Very interesting place to visit, if you are interesting in "old Bangkok." Interesting displays, cool garden. Free entry but you have to take off your shoes every time you go into a building (3 buildings, so off, on, off, on, off, on). The museum has...More

I’m so glad I made the effort to find this place and it exceeded my expectations. Such a beautiful wooden home with a happy, welcoming atmosphere. As so much of it has been kept and preserved you get a fascinating insight into the middle class...More

Nice middle class house (in fact three buildings). Furnishings and items from the 1950s so not that ancient. Interpretations mostly in Thai. Maybe of more interest to Thais than foreigners.

This museum is definitely one of my favourites places in Bangkok - it's hidden rather far from other attractions, but quite easy to access by Chao Phraya Express Boat. Its hidden between stores and shops so make sure you know the address. You can visit...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
