Review of Nan Noble House

Nan Noble House
Reviewed 13 April 2016 via mobile

The property owener is a 4th generation decendant of the ruler, Nan Province. She is seated in picture. In her private museum, entrance is free of charge. She share with you her collection of artifacts and lifestyle items in the past 100 years old history of Nan Province. The vital treasure is collection of Buddhism scriptures in Lana language. There is a open house annexed to the Museum where retirees are active in Buddhist art. Inside the museum, a small shop where you can buy souvenir at reasonable price.
You must not miss the museum if you wish to learn history of Thailand.

One of the old school Thai houses in Nan that you can see when you take the trolley tour of Nan. The wooden house is split in 2 levels and you can see what old Thai architecture was like.

The place is called House of Chao Fongkham, commonly referred to as Nan Noble House. It's actually a teak house of around 150 years of age and built in a classic Northern Thai style. The late Chao Fongkham was a descendant of Chao Anantaworarithidej, the 62nd Lord of Nan and the father of the last two Lords. It's interesting to walk around the house to see different rooms (living/ bedroom/ kitchen) which exhibit the good old ways of life. Besides, there's this small museum displaying antique and silverware to browse further. For those interested in local handicrafts and woven fabrics, do visit the basement area. There are looms on display, usually with demonstration on how to weave a famous fabric - the Lai Nam Lai (ผ้าลายน้ำไหล).

A very well preserved house with beautiful gardens. We also got to see how they do weaving and were very fortunate to be treated to a private tour, dinner and show. Well worth a visit!

Going back a few hundred years is the memory-lane where the Nan Noble House will take you. Located as a relatively stand-alone residential area of the town, this house hold the beauty that you must seek to see. This well maintained house surrounding by beautiful garden offer a personal unique experience that a visitor appreciated. Each area is well furnished with items from the past. The house is also well designed even for modern structure and a chance to use it as a background for your photo is highly recommended. It is nice to visit their home-weaving factory and shop in the basement as well.
