Every street corner of the Thai capital is mostly packed with tourist trying to explore the city. Many arrive in Thailand and make Bangkok one of their essential stops. One of the key attractions in the surrounding area is the Bangkokian Museum.
If you happen to be on the lookout for comfortable and self-sufficient accommodation near the Bangkokian Museum, the Chatrium Residencies Riverside Bangkok is an ideal option as these serviced apartments Bangkok are a mere 10 minutes away from the museum. Located in Bangrak, the museum is not very well known and also is hard to find. However, it is worth the time to find this well kept secret. It is also sometimes referred to as the “Bangkok folk Museum”. The museum consists of two immaculately preserved wooden houses. The museum is located in a vast garden. Feel free to walk in and write down your name on the guest book and proceed to explore, as the entry into this gem is free.
The first house is the fairly large house with varnish floors and wooden green walls. The antiques of the household are preserved in cabinets and most of the articles that were used are still to be found in the house in excellent condition. Being a two storey house the breeze that flows through helps keeps it nice and cool.
The second house which is an original countryside house sits behind the larger house. A contrasting style is evident with darker teak wood being used to build the walls and floors of this house, still preserving the old articles and structure.
Next to these two buildings is a more modern building that is home to some intriguing articles and items from the past which have no clear date or apparent historical value.
