  • The Kamthieng House Museum is a museum in Bangkok, run by the Siam Society under royal patronage. It is a 160-year old traditional teakwood house from northern Thailand. It is amazing to visit this house in the shade of big buildings.
  • Great displays representing the traditional lifestyle of northern Thai people. From fishing and hunting tools to architecture and art and weaving practices. Amazing display of jewelry as well as ancient tattoo practices too. Don't miss out on the animated video downstairs showing the building method of Lanna architecture. Another great video is played upstairs in the kitchen on the traditional cooking methods of the Lanna people. If you're interested in traditional culture and practices then this place will not disappoint!
  • Ummm.. Not sure what they are trying to show here. There isn't much to see at all. It's too bad because it could be a cool cultural oasis in the mass bedlam that Bangkok is.
