Suan Pakkad Palace

Once a private residence of the royals of Thailand, this collection of traditional Thai houses has now been turned into a museum. Suan Pakkad gives visitors great insight into Thai culture with its display of artefacts and traditional Thai architecture. The name 'Suan Pakkad' translating to 'cabbage patch', is quite unfitting for this private residence turned museum.
