Bangkok is an all time favourite among holiday goers, as it has an array of activities lined up and waiting for everyone. One of the popular areas in Bangkok is Sukhumvit, mainly due to the easy accessibility to countless attractions. Booking into a hotel in Bangkok Sukhumvit could sometimes be a task during peak times. Apart from the shopping malls the buzzing bars and restaurants, there are also a few quieter experiences, such as a trip to Kamthieng House Museum. The Museum is a great place to check out if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and there are few places such as Emporium Suites by Chatrium located in close proximity for you to stay.

Located next to one of the busiest junctions of Sukhumvit, the Kamthieng House museum leaves many in awe as to whether such a secluded calm place could exist in a busy neighbourhood. The museum takes after the northern region of Thailand and is a complete contrast to the concrete jungle surroundings it is in. It is a renovated house that provides a great insight into the rural lives of the Thai people. Most people who come to the area tend to stumble upon this gem and those who are intrigued in particular by the historical aspect of Thailand would definitely find this place useful. Maintained by the Siam society, which strives hard to protect the Thai Culture, Kamthieng house is a great example of their work in doing so. The displays reflect the farming culture of the 19th century. There usually isn’t a large crowd at the museum so the strolls itself are quite calming. It would take you approximately an hour to look around and there e is always something eye-catching to keep you interested during the tour. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9.00am until 5.00 pm with an admission fee.
