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.

How to get there
Khamthieng House is a five-minute walk from the Asok BTS station. It is located just outside the MRT station Sukhumvit.
