M.R. Kukrit’s Heritage Home offers a pleasant journey into the life of Thailand’s former prime minister and multi-talented personality. Set on a picturesque pond garden, the five traditional teak homes showcase a rich collection of artifacts, including ceramics, antiques, fine arts and rare books.

It’s not every day that you get the chance to look around a former prime minister’s residence, so if you are interested in traditional Thai culture and looking for somewhere off the main Bangkok tourist trail, head over to M.R. Kukrit’s Heritage Home (also known as Baan Suan Phlu).

 And what a beautiful place it is with the pavilions, open verandas and gardens standing out as an oasis of tradition amidst the very modern environs of Bangkok. This collection of traditional Thai buildings has been registered by the Department of Fine Arts as a site of historic significance and is described as a ‘House of Important Person’. Despite this lofty title the house still retains the feel and intimacy of a family home rather than a museum. Although the owner passed away in 1995, the residence has been deliberately kept just as if M.R. Kukrit Pramoj was still alive and living here.

There are some similarities to Jim Thompson’s House, but far fewer visitors make it out to M.R. Kukrit’s Home which in itself is a good reason to visit. Unlike Jim Thompson’s House, there is no compulsory guided tour so visitors are free to wander around at leisure. If you are lucky (as I was recently) you may even get to meet the owner’s son who will welcome you into his father’s home


 A politician, writer, poet and national artist, M.R. Kukrit Pramoj came from a privileged background and was a man of many talents – in a way, a Renaissance man. He penned more than 40 novels, stage plays, short stories and poems as well as actively promoting traditional Thai culture. He started a political party in 1945 and became Thailand’s 13th Prime Minister from 1974 to 1975. His home, tucked away in a quiet lane just off Soi Suan Plu in the Sathorn area, is filled with a wealth of cultural treasures and personal artifacts. More than a museum walk-through, however, M.R. Kukrit’s Heritage Home is a manifestation of his complex personality and life-long passions for traditional Thai art and literature.
