Capital Art: Where Thai Old Identity and New Ideas Converge

January 7, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Our team in Thailand drafted a great trip to discover a variety of art around Bangkok. The day kicks off with a visit to the Museum of Siam, a modern, interactive museum in the heart of the Old City. It tells the story of how Thai identity has developed over thousands of years by using a variety of techniques.

Next is the Prasart Museum, which consists of an eclectic, ever so slightly eccentric assembly of buildings, all replicas of influential Thai palaces, houses and royal residences, some dating back as far as the Ayutthaya period.

Lunch will be at the brand new Museum of Contemporary Art. MOCA aims to preserve and protect Thai contemporary art and culture and gives visitors an opportunity to admire the works of art created by Thai artists through a well-presented collection spread out over five floors. The building and its contents are a first for Bangkok.

From here we drive back to the oldest part of the Thai capital where we visit the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall. This museum offers seven exhibition rooms each representing a part of the various aspects of Rattanakosin, the ancient capital of Thailand.
