  • The best part I liked was the Thai paintings from different times. Improvement can be to put more narratives on each painting for better understanding of foreign visitors.
  • Good museum. Loved the architecture of the buildings to begin with. The displays are also good. However, felt that there was not a lot of diversity. The museum shop was nice too.
  • Way better than I expected. Seamed small at first, but opens up to a good variety of exhibits. All very different, a good way to kill some time for free.
  • Due to the passing of the King entry to the national musuem was free when we went. The displays of the thai history were beautiful. I would have liked to get more information regarding the history of Thailand and about the previous Kings, but it is definitely worth going here as part of the temple tours. I would recommend going.
  • It's a beautiful place, some exhibitions are under renovation. A nice Thai restaurant is located next to the museum library, the food is very good and cheap.

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.
