Peaceful Place In the Center of City

This place is fairly similar to Jim Thompson house, but without all the crowds. I was given a pamphlet with some information on it, but it would have been nice to have some... read more

If you have a free hour or two and want to escape the noise of the city and the more popular tourist areas, former Prime Minister M.R.Kukrit Pramoj’s home near South Sathorn Road is well worth a visit. Although a group tour or a wedding party might be in progress, you can still find plenty of quiet areas around the... More

This place is fairly similar to Jim Thompson house, but without all the crowds. I was given a pamphlet with some information on it, but it would have been nice to have some people around to ask questions of and get more info from. Was a little hard to find the place.

This site is ok if your in the area but not worth a special trip. It's fairly small and a 30 minute visit is plenty of time to see it all. The entrance is only 50 Baht which is reasonable since the property is quite nice.

This house was a home to a past Prime Minister Kukrit Pramoj (1911–1995) of Thailand (Prime Minister 1975-6). The place consists of five teak houses, the earliest of which is more than 100 years old. The décor of the home looks to be from the 1950s- 1970s. It’s a good example of an upscale house from this time period. The... More

The traditional architecture and contents are interesting if you enjoy learning about traditions and culture. The grounds were very quiet when we visited with no other visitors. The lotus plants were blooming with an abundant green atmosphere to the grounds.

After having enjoyed Jim Thompson's house, for those interested to have a glimpse of how an wealthy and sophisticated a Thai writer could enjoy a retreated life in Bangkok in the 60's-80's : Assembly of superb old teak houses in a middle of a 5000m2 garden, almost reserved for you, as they are very few visitors.

- if you're interested in Thai house architecture, this is a palace for you - if you're interested in M.R. Kukrit's life (artist, writer, politician), this is a place for you as well - quite far from the town, have to take a bus and local Song Taw (little truck which delivering people to places where's no bus) and then...

Staying in Sathorn

Neighbourhood Profile
Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but here you’ll find much more than international banks and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you can find in the town-house restaurants, office food courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the area, especially around St. Louis Hospital. A visit to Sathorn is not complete without a drink at one of the glitzy sky bars perched atop its skyscrapers.
