Bangkok is so big, we’ve split it up into areas, select one of the below for detailed accommodation and food listings in that area. Sights and general overviews for Bangkok as a whole can be found via the icons above. Don’t know where to start? Read an overview of Bangkok’s different areas.

Princess Mother Memorial Park

The house she lived in was demolished long ago but a replica is there.

The cool park also features an eight-metre long sculpture to mark the good works undertaken by the Princess Mother.

While the park is hardly worth a trip across town to see, if you're looking to tick off all the points of interest along the Chao Phraya River, this is one of them.

Back a book and grab some snacks for a sleepy couple of hours.

How to get there
Access is easiest from the pier out the front of the Kuen Oo shrine. The regular express boats don't stop here. Catch the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat or hire a long-tail. The park is behind and just to the left of the shrine.
