  • Found this place away from the busy tourist area. Nicely set up. Very quiet area. You can very well imagine that Mr. Kukrit so enters in his home. Beautiful grounds, nice explanation in English. Informative I find it extremely rewarding to get an insight to how the rich lived.

  • Read the comments feel very good specially ride over, came after very disappointed, a glance at the end, 50 baht although not expensive but still feel not worth the price, just two rooms a garden, do not recommend specially to

  • 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 constan...  more »

  • Nancy Chandler's wonderful map and accompanying short guidebook about Bangkok first got me interested in this special spot. I got there near the end of the day right after some heavy rain. The gardens are magical--collosal lotus flowers and leaves crowd the large ponds. The carp also seemed enormous. There are all kinds of tropical flowers of every color. The sounds of wildlife abound--from the many different bird sounds to the crow of a rooster and the baying of the many dogs that the caretakers feed. I was the only visitor and spent some time speaking with the caretakers who were very welcoming and full of interesting information and stories. While I saw the garden as an oasis in the city, their view was quite different. Having grown up in the area, they had seen it go from farmland/orchards to be built up all around this last little enclave that is preserved. The buildings are interesting and come from other parts of the city/country and were renovated to be part of the home. Equally interesting is the life of the first Prime Minister of Thailand, the former owner and creator of this home/gardens.
  • A beautiful quiet place in this noisy city! The houses are traditional Thai houses that apparently used to be ubiquitous in this City but have unfortunately become extremely rare. The garden is lovely, just as the people taking care of this gem. They answered all my questions and were super friendly. I just wanted to stay there die the remainder of my trip.
  • A nice place for a wedding with 100 guests. This is a historic site where M.R.Kukrit lived, so there are buildings with traditional Thai architecture style, nice gardens and a big lawn in the back of the house. The front building has a raised floor which was perfect for Buddhist ceremonies. The back lawn was big and easily accommodated 100 guests (probably big enough for 200 guests) in a buffet-style lunch with 10-seat round tables for guests to sit and eat comfortably. There are two minor things I did not enjoy so much. First, parking is limited. We parked at a parking lot 200 meters away from the front gate and walked. Shoes for weddings aren't so friendly. Second, there were so many fierce mosquitos. I was bitten constantly while I was there, in the morning!
  • Beautiful gardens and buildings. I've been here twice. Both times for a wedding! Great spot in hectic Bangkok for an open air, traditional feel wedding. Huge space in the back made hosting a lunch on a lawn possible. Haven't visited as a tourist yet but hope to.
  • Very great heritage place in town. Fantastic classic old house and garden.
