A couple of hundred meters away from Asoke, one of the busisest junctions in Sukhumvit, is Kamthieng House Museum run by the Siam Society. It is a string of 160-year-old tiny teak houses now converted into a museum. Situated in the Watthana District of Bangkok, Baan Kamthieng House Museum is an oasis in the concrete jungle surrounding it. This attraction is worth dropping by, if you are in the area.
The Kamthieng House was originally a traditional 19th-century house sitting on the banks of Mae Pin in Chiang Mai district which was later relocated to Bangkok. Now the headquarters of The Siam Society, it houses carefully annotated archival pieces with an aim to promote Thai heritage, culture and traditions of the Lannas.
