Baan Kukrit in Bangkok || Bangkok Information

The house is set in beautiful tropical gardens with ponds. The architecture is in the Ayutthaya style constructed of teak wood. The main residence building is furnished with antiques such as a lion-leg bed that was used by King Rama II . The library holds books on many subjects, ranging from fiction to philosophy.

M.R. Kukrit was one of Thailand's most interesting characters. He was a noted performer and choreographer of the traditional Thai "Khon" dance drama, writer of stories that have become Thai classics such as "Phai Dang", founder, publisher and editor of the influential "Siam Rath" newspaper, actor with Marlon Brando in "The Ugly American" and founder of the Social Action political party, of which he was the leader when he served as Prime Minister from 1974 to 1975. He was a man of impeccable taste which is mirrored in "Baan Kukrit" his Bangkok home.

There is a smaller house called "Ho Kwang", which he used as a private retreat for relaxing and a Thai-style pavilion, with solid teak pillars and furnished in his impeccable taste.
