The exterior is more impressive than the interior if you're not into old furniture and small bowls/lacquered items. Decent value for money as the admission fee (50 Baht) includes a cold drink (homemade iced tea when we visited) and some shade from the hot sun.

This is an old,(150 years), house and it is famous for the authentic nature and the preservation of a large amount of original features. The special interest is that it is supported on 150 Teak pillars and the entire house has sagged and bent over the years! There is a very small charge for visiting, (about 50Bht), and it is... More

They have a couple of old style Thai house here. Like a museum both inside and outside. The inside is better than the outside in my opinion. Some really nice old style furnitures and other stuff. The outside could have done with some better restauration. The woman selling tickets and taking care was very nice and friendly.

One of the inherent charms of Lampang is the preservation of numerous vernacular teak houses and their gardens. Ban Sao Nak (House of Many Pillars) is a superb example of one such traditional home that has been lovingly preserved inside and out. The interior has been enhanced by a harmonious blend of vintageThai and Burmese furnishings and personal artifacts of... More

The best reason to visit this private residence is because its located in a beautiful old area of Lampang, there are least 6 temples, an old ruin and a night market (on Wang Nuea road), all within 400 metres of Baan Sao Nak. The sad bit about Baan Sao Nak is they destroyed a 150 year old tree, the poor... More
