  • Very quiet when I was there. Nice garden and lovely old Thai houses. There's quite a lot to see but after an hour you are ready.

  • Rambling. No photos inside. Pond with huge catfish. Early artefacts (metal, glass & pottery) amazing. Good collection of shells and interesting mineral samples (very dusty). Many attendents to keep you in line. Nice royal barge. Garden plants helpfully labelled. Allow a few hours to take it all in.
  • Totally overlooked but worthwhile palace complex with a great story and eclectic collectors ranging from prehistoric to seashells.
  • I had an amazing time here! Especially the last part, amazing!
  • A very pleasant and peaceful way to spend a few hours taking in the varied Thai historical artifacts and architecture. Some display rooms are air conditioned but some are naturally drafty, especially in the morning. Free artisanal fan provided additional cooling. Not a crowded place during our visit. Not expensive at all.
  • Very nice and quiet museum in the midst of hectic Bangkok. Many houses and things to look at. Cheap entrance, 100 baht at time of writing. Very tranquil place to relax a little.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
