This house museum shows a traditional northern Thai house in the heart of downtown Bangkok. It was a nice, peaceful history lesson during my trip. I really enjoyed the traditional songs being played at a couple of locations in the house. I thought the displays...More

Located behind Emquartier mall. Small but nice museum/reconstructed house that gives you an example of life in a traditional Lanna house. Worth checking it out for 60 minutes at only 100 baht. Bring bug spray. The only bites we got in BKK were here.

With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls
lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)
where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for
a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and
soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's
