This part is where the magic happens. There are many wonderful things to see in Bangkok, from age-old legacies to the European-influenced architecture wonders. Start with Nai Lert Park Heritage Home, dedicated to Bangkok's Nai Lert Phraya Bhakdinoraseth – a wellknown and respected entrepreneur and philanthropist who passed away in 1945. The picturesque private residence holds 100 years of history and tradition and was converted into a heritage property that can be enjoyed by all in 2012. Sprawling across 24,000sq.m. – amidst tall, modern buildings – Nai Lert Park Heritage
Home boasts lush, manicured gardens surrounding the house, in which many collections of art and memorabilia are displayed.
For a more “infused” heritage journey, The European Union National Institutes for Culture in Thailand (or EUNIC Thailand) highlights Bangkok destinations that are steeped in European influences, portraying the socio-political dynamics of centuries back. From royal palaces and mansions like Bang Khun Phrom Palace, which is now repurposed as the headquarters of Bank of Thailand and also a museum, to religious heritage sites and galleries of commerce, technology and transportation.
