  • A very nice museum about the history of the ruling family of Phrae. It is worth the visit and has most information in Thai and English.
  • I would like to give a compliment to the staff that showed us around the mansion and explained the history of each room. We were very impressed by her courtesy and the knowledge she had. I really like this place.
  • Khum Chao Luang was the old residence of the Governor of Phrae province. The teak wood mansion was built during King Rama V and has been converted into a museum.
  • Expected more. It's simply a collection of plates, pots, and bedroom articles. Not impressive if you've been to other similar museums before
  • beautiful ancient house with creditable histories

Where to stay in Phrae

There are a number of excellent budget-friendly to luxury options available in Phrae. Head near the bus station for a couple of well-equipped, slightly pricier hotels that offer cable TV, air-conditioning, and ensuite bathroom facilities. Alternatively, traveling backpackers on a budget flock to the heart of Phrae, where there are a number of rooms close to the night market. The accommodations here are spaced apart and require a lot of walking. Book your rooms ahead of time to avoid a lot of traveling back and forth.
