Founded in 1904, The Siam Society was instituted in order to preserve Thai culture and promote education and learning about Thailand and its neighbours.
While most of the society's offerings are only available to members, there is a frequent rotation of lectures, concerts and exhibitions which can be attended by the public. In addition to the activities, the society is also home to a library housing rare Asian manuscripts and books. The Siam Society also organises cultural study trips and activities which can be attended for a fee. It is worth checking the Siam Society's website to see if there are any upcoming interesting happenings.
How to get there
The Siam Society is located just outside of the Sukhumvit MRT station and a short walk from the Asoke BTS stop.
