    Erawan Museum - Samut Prakarn - Photos

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erawan_Museum

    Went to the Erawan Museum and I was completely blown away. The elephant there is frigging HUGE.

    It's a pretty cool place, outside of our group, there were probably 10 other people there. Tourist entrance price is 400B. For a sense of scale, the pedestal is 3 stories tall.

    Drive by it often but never been in or tempted to go. Thanks for the pics, just confirms my suspicions about the place.

    I thought it was pretty cool...a place truly devoted to Thai culture rather than a place to praise the monarchy.

    Of course! Please do. I didn't make it up to the Blue Room in the elephant as my knees cringed at the staircase.

    It looks very grandiose. The elephants and architecture are really beautiful. How do you get there from Bangkok?

    It looks like a museum to bad taste but if you must waste 400 baht on it get the BTS to bearing then a bus such as the 142 which passes by.

    ^Thank you... If I'm ever out that way I'll check it out. 400 baht does seem overpriced though, but what isn't these days.

    Christ, you mean even after you've paid you need to have a swordfight before they let you in?
