A celebration of northern Thai culture

Photo of Kamthieng House, , Bangkok

What we say: 3.5 stars

Today it houses a museum aimed at preserving and displaying elements of northern Thai Lanna culture such as folk art, costumes and tools.

The upstairs museum features rooms dedicated to daily life in 19th century northern Thailand: explanations of cooking utensils, belief systems and the woman's role in society are all thorough and interesting. The artefacts are beautifully displayed and the grounds are a tranquil refuge in the midst of all the Asok clamour.
