The name 'Suan Pakkad' translating to 'cabbage patch', is quite unfitting for this private residence turned museum. It's a one of a kind palace museum, as it once used to be the private residence of the Prince and Princess of Chumbhot, and the houses date back to over 100 years. Before being converted into a private collection of homes by the royal family, the land used to be nothing more than a cabbage patch.
It is an excellent place to visit if you're looking to get away from the humdrum of typical touristy locations, as this is a little off the radar for most tourists. Suan Pakkad is the place to be for anyone looking for a quaint, relaxing visit to mesmerising gardens and a chance to see traditional Thai architecture and curios.
Home to many archaeologically and historically significant artefacts, it is perfect for anyone looking to gain more insight into Thai history. It has items such as rocks and minerals from ancient times to pieces from the daily lives of royals such as mother of pearl containers, nutcrackers, clothes, etc. Must-see attractions include the gardens, some with exhibits dating back to the 7th century, Marsi Gallery and the Lacquer Pavillion.
