National Museum of Royal Barges
Discover Thailand's most stunning vessels.
Thailand’s most valuable royal barges date back to the reign of King Rama I, and are reserved only for use at the most auspicious royal ceremonies.
Each one is carved from pure teak and engraved with traditional mythical creatures gilded in gold.
Look out for the highlight of the museum, the Suppanahong royal barge, which stretches 46 meters and features a golden mystical swan as its figurehead.
