What to Expect
Get picked up at your hotel.

An overlooked treasure, Suan Phakkad is a collection of eight traditional wooden Thai houses that was once the residence of Princess Chumbon of Nakhon Sawan and before that a lettuce farm hence the name. Within the stilt buildings are displays of art, antiques and furnishings, and the landscaped grounds are a peaceful oasis complete with ducks, swans and a semi-enclosed garden. The palace and attached museum is a relaxed place with friendly staff. The very fact that it is off the main tourist trail makes the experience all the more pleasant. It’s a pretty venue rather than a spectacular one and can’t be compared to the grandeur of Wat Phra Kaeo and the Grand Palace, but if you’ve enjoyed a visit to Jim Thompson’s House, the chances are you will also enjoy Suan Pakkad Palace.The name ‘Suan Pakkad’ translates to ‘cabbage garden’ which is precisely what the land was before it became a royal residence in the 1950s. It was here where Prince Chumbhot Paribatra of Nagor Svaga and his consort, Princess Chumbhot Paribatra, built a unique royal home. The prince, a grandson of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V), had the idea to transport in traditional Thai buildings rather than build them from scratch.

After the tour you'll return to your hotel for rest.
