Baan Maeo Thai (House of Siamese Cats)

If you're a cat person

What we say: 3 stars

Located about a kilometre south of Wat Kai Bang Kung along the same road is the so-called House for Breeding and Nature of Thai Cats.

It was set up by a group of serious cat lovers as a way to conserve authentic species of the famous Siamese cat. These graceful felines became a big hit among the wealthy in England after two of them were given to British consul members in Bangkok by King Rama V and taken back to London in the late 1800s, and they remain the most recognisable house cat in the world today.

This isn't exactly a jaw-dropping attraction, but it features exhibits on the four varieties of Siamese cat -- Wichienmas, Korat, Supaluk and Gon Jaa -- as well as several real life cats that hang around the house and its surrounding gardens. Admission is free but donations are encouraged.
