This house museum shows a traditional northern Thai house in the heart of downtown Bangkok. It was a nice, peaceful history lesson during my trip. I really enjoyed the traditional songs being played at a couple of locations in the house. I thought the displays...More

A lovely way to share a bit of the history and the way of life of the Lan Na community. Consisting of the main house where the family eat, sleep, socialise, the cookhouse where they cook their meals and storehouse, the museum was well presented...More

Located behind Emquartier mall. Small but nice museum/reconstructed house that gives you an example of life in a traditional Lanna house. Worth checking it out for 60 minutes at only 100 baht. Bring bug spray. The only bites we got in BKK were here.

With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls
lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)
where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for
a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and
soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's
