Just steps away from one of Bangkok’s busiest intersections, the Kamthieng House is an intricate structure that was originally situated on the Ping River in Chiang Mai, and then relocated to central Bangkok in the 1960s. Standing as a prime example of Northern Thai architecture, this antique home is now more than 160 years old and has been preserved in excellent condition. Visitors can learn about Thailand’s ethnological history through the display of arts, crafts and everyday working tools of Thailand’s Northern ethnic groups.
The Kamthieng House is stocked with artefacts that represent the traditional rural way of life, with beautiful hand-woven fabrics, elaborate wood carvings, traditional musical instruments and religious items. Admission is 100THB for adults and 50THB for children.
Baan Kamthieng house is located directly adjacent to the BTS Skytrain Asoke Station. Take the BTS Skytrain to Asoke Station or the subway to Sukhumvit Station. Open Tuesday to Saturday (except public holidays) 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM closed Sunday, Monday & Public Holidays.
