THURSDAY MORNING MARKET & KAMTHIENG HOUSE

A hidden gem inside of Bangkok is the Thursday morning market. We will meet at Asoke BTS, walk to the market at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 23, and spend approximately one hour there. Those of us who choose to will get a coffee at Starbucks afterward. Then we will head off to Sukhumvit Soi 21 to the Kamthieng House.

The Kamthieng House is a 160-year old traditional teakwood house situated within the grounds of the Siam Society. It is one of the best surviving examples of Northern Thai architecture and provides a superb example of a traditional Northern Thai house built on wooden stilts. kamthieng houseIt also serves as an ethnological museum. The house has been stocked with artifacts associated with the rural way of life in traditional agricultural communities. This includes a fascinating collection of beautifully handwoven materials, ornate wood carvings, traditional musical instruments and sacred items. Under the house at ground level, a rich assortment of fishtraps, irrigation devices, ploughs and rice-harvesting equipment made of wood, reeds and bamboo are displayed.
