The Suan Pakkad Palace, getting away from it all in Bangkok

The Suan Pakkad palace, now a museum, offers an excellent escape from the bustle of city life.

Give yourself a well-deserved break in a refreshing, calm and idyllic setting. Cut off from the rest of town is the Suan Pakkad Palace – hidden among trees that majestically reach towards the sky of Bangkok, you could pass very close by without noticing it. Composed of eight traditional Thai-style houses, the museum is home to a sumptuous collection of art and objects of all kinds, distributed in the various pavilions. You can admire musical instruments, precious stones, Chinese porcelain, statues from various periods, shells and fossils, masks and traditional dance outfits, pottery, ceramics and furniture. A set of teak walkways lets you wander from one house to the next. Outside, superb pools surround the buildings. If you are patient, you may even see a huge carp.
