Thai Houses Heritage of Bangkok - Excursion

Nestling amidst Bangkok’s gleaming skyscrapers are a number of historic buildings that should be on your ‘must see’ list. The vast and elaborate Vimanmek Mansion is a former royal residence constructed entirely from teak. While across town you can experience what it would have been like to live in a grand old traditional Thai villa at the Jim Thompson House and Suan Pakard museum. 

Day 1:    Bangkok
 
 

This morning, after breakfast, meet your guide and visit the Vimanmek Teak Mansion. This amazing teak building used to be the residence of King Rama V in the early 1900s. 

The exhibition shows some of the personal effects of King Rama V and a collection of early Ratanakosin art and antiques.

Next on the program is a visit to Jim Thompson's House & Museum which consists of a complex of six traditional Thai-style houses made of teak. Thompson's extensive art and antique collection is predominantly of Asian origin and includes sculptures, painting, porcelain and more.

“Unfortunately our dream holiday is over. It was fantastic! We haven’t felt ‘lost’ for a moment and everything was tip top arranged for. Thank you for our ‘trip without worries’. Yes, ahead of our first long-distance trip we’ve been worried; wouldn’t we lose our way, will someone take care of us? Thank you for helping realize this fantastic dream holiday! A very good experience to discover parts of Thailand especially River Kwai and its main attraction. What an incredible experience [Phuket Town Discovery Walk]! I tried the fortune stick throwing thing for the first time. You can see the passion our guide had for what he is doing. Experience the rich and diverse history and culture of Phuket. Along the way we grabbed some snacks, purchased some souvenirs and took plenty of photos. The tour was taken at a comfortable pace with a clear direction. By the end we were amazed at how much we learned about the island of Phuket and the history of Phuket Town. Excellent, helpful people, punctuality pick up time, Great experience of bicycle ride to add on extra dimension at our trip for Thailand countryside. The Bangkok Biking was very interesting and well organized as well as the one in Khao Sok. We enjoyed every single day so much!!! And we like to come back again.”

Yui - 12Gothailand I am Yui Boonruang, responsible for making custom itineraries fitting your requests and budget. One of my favorite destinations in Thailand is Koh Phangan because of the clean white sand and clear ocean water of the beach at Haad Rin. I love Tom Yam Goong, the most famous Thai spicy soup. I recommend ordering this soup at the Tom Yum Kung Restaurant on Khao San Road. It’s on a small soi (side street) and so it is not so busy with the tourist crowd there. I would love to Welcome you to Thailand!
