Nice beautiful teak houses. The museum is not big but it can give you a taste of Thai culture. It consists of old teak houses that were converted to a museum. The place is easily accessible by BTS.

In countless visits to Bangkok, Suan Pakkad Palace (meaning the cabbage garden palace in Thai) hadn't previously appeared on my radar. An oasis of calm, green beauty in the midst of bustling Bangkok. Fascinating exhibits, buildings and grounds, cheek by jowl with the overhead, airport...More

No tour buses here. For awhile I was the only one. Lots of vegetation and old historic buildings transported to this location. Also some archeology artifacts of early Ban Chiang culture. Some rooms air conditioned and some not. Enjoyed my visit.

A nice place to visit for the price if you are interested in Thai culture. Other similar museums in the city are the Bangkokian museum and Kamthieng house.

I was looking at things to do when this little gem came across my maps. It's less than a mile away from my hostel in Phaya Tai. It's 100 baht for an entrance fee. They also request for you to put any bags you have...More

In the centre of the city, here is a haven of green and traditional low-rise. The quantity of the exhibits is almost overwhelming, especially if you do not have a Thai cultural and historical peg to hang it all on. And the labeling/interpretation materials need...More

We went here to the "Cabbage Field" palace museum as part of out ship's tour into Bangkok. The interior grounds are pretty, but we were rushed through the exhibits so fast we couldn't understand what the museum guide was saying. Plus we had to take...More
