Mr Kukrit's House

The home, which he lived in from 1980 until his death, remains exactly as it did when he passed away in 1995.

Spread across two acres of beautiful gardens and land the home itself is made from five small one-room teak houses, the oldest is over 100 years old, joined by open-air verandas and elevated on stilts. It is brim-full of M.R. Kukrit's traditional treasures, including antique Thai Khon masks and a collection of rare plants and mai dai trees.

Perhaps the most interesting facet of the house is its meticulous preservation. Not as picturesque as the somewhat similar Jim Thompson House, the Heritage Home gives the air that Kukrit has just stepped out for the afternoon.


How to get there
The house can be reached from Narathiwatrajanakarin Rd soi 7 or South Sathorn Rd soi 3. Get off at BTS station Chong Nonsi or the BRT station Sathorn. It is about a 10-minute walk from the BTS.
