History Museum
“Firstly I think this place is a little bit “fancy” for a museum: beautiful, modern, with a coffee shop and a souvenir shop at 1st floor. But the more you discover this place, the more excited you are. You will know more about Thai history, Thai culture, Thai food, Thai game... a lot of “Thai” - in a beautiful, smart and modern, and, funny way ☺️”

Every painting was ranged from period or country themes, and there is also a great mix of traditional and new art. The museum is divided into two floors, over 2,500 square meters and 150 paintings that visitors can have fun and enjoy the new experience with interactive paintings. Paintings inside Art in Paradise (Bangkok) were drawn by 15 professional artists who initiated "3D" painting in Korea and Thailand, they had spent two and a half months painting the wall and floor by hand.”

History Museum
“A traditional teak farm near Terminal 21. The setting of this renovated teak house feels more like the northern Thai village it originated in rather than the middle of a concrete jungle. Well renovated with interesting displays, a visit here will give you a great insight into traditional rural life. ”

Buddhist Temple
“This is by far one of the most beautiful temples in the world and also the most visited touristic site in Bangkok. Wat Phra Kaew is located in the grounds of the Grand Palace, which itself is already impressive. The whole complex has beautiful corners with colorful tiles and gold covered statues. The most iconic part is of course the Emerald Buddha, which is carved into a 66cm block of Jade. Get ready to be stepped on by hundreds and thousands of tourists. The temple gets so crowded especially during high season. The best time to visit is early in the morning. The closing time is 3 pm, so make sure to be there by 2 pm to have enough time to see everything.”
