BANGKOK NA­TIONAL MU­SEUM

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - HIT LIST -

While Wat Phra Kaew (Tem­ple of the Emer­ald Bud­dha) and Wat Pho (Tem­ple of the Re­clin­ing Bud­dha) are con­stantly packed with tourists, not far to the north the Bangkok Na­tional Mu­seum is also well worth a visit, pro­vid­ing a com­pre­hen­sive over­view of Thai his­tory, art and cul­ture. One of Asia’s largest mu­se­ums, it’s split into three sec­tions filled with an­cient arte­facts, reli­gious stat­ues, antiques and gifts given to the Thai royal fam­ily over the years. Ac­cess by Chao Phraya river­boat pier Tha Phra Athit/Banglam­phu (N13).
