The residence is not large but it is quiet and off the beaten track. It offers a glimpse into what life in Bangkok could have been like in the past. It isn't large so seeing the actual residence and exhibist can be done rather quickly....More

Not a major attraction, half an hour+ is sufficient to see round it, and if you have been to Jim Thompson House you could argue that you have covered it already. However there are too few (and constantly diminishing; Hemingway’s Asok being a prime example)...More

M.R. Kukrit was a columnist, poet and the former prime minister of Thailand in the 1970s. The house reflects Kukrit's diverse lifestyle and his distinct tastes. This hidden treasure locates in the heart of the city centre. It’s a pleasant, 10-min walk from Chong Nonsi...More

Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but

I cannot answer your question precisely. The closest MRT line is Chong Nonsi. From there, it is a walking distance as you cross the bridge over Sathorn. The soi will be on the left handside soon after the bridge.
