The gardens were spectacular. It was so quiet, calming an peaceful with the birds chirping and the flowers blowing in the wind...which is hard to find in the middle of Bangkok. It was a nice history lesson as well.

But it is! And so much more interesting and meaningful. Quiet calm and peaceful and no shop attached! We came here as part of the Follow Me Bike Tour, so I'm not sure how to get there. Our ride leader was able to tell us all about the history, and it was so interesting, and we were lucky enough to say Hello to his Grandson. M.R. Kukrit Pramoj loved dogs and it is very evuident! It's a cool, calm and interesting place to visit. http://www.kukritshousefund.com

If you visited Jim Thompson's House and liked it, you'll probably also like this place very much.

If you like seeing (and imagining) how interesting people live(d), this is an excellent place to visit. If you are curious about how an extremely important player on Thailand's 20th century stage lived, this is the place.

Almost an alter-ego to Jim Thompson's house, this has a main house and a number of out-buildings (including a separate one for holding audiences), distributed around extensive landscaped gardens on about a hectare of land "hidden away" between the concrete jungle of the Sathorn Road area.

M.R. (this is an indication of aristocratic status) Kukrit Pramoj (b.1911-d.1995) was a scholar, prolific author, founder of the influential newspaper Thai Rath, actor (in "The Ugly American") and (in the mid 1970s) Prime Minister of Thailand.

You can take a tour, or get a brochure which facilitates a self-guided tour. I did the latter - which gave me the opportunity to wander the grounds at my own pace - with plenty of opportunities to stop and reflect on life (M.R. Kukrit Pramoj's own life, life in Thailand, and life in general).

Personally, no matter how much I like Jim Thompson's house (which is a cornerstone of our tour of Bangkok when we host visitors) - now that I have found Kukrit Pramoj's home I like it much more. It's not just a place - but a refuge for reflection in the midst of Bangkok's concrete jungle.
