Visiting Nan Noble House in Nan
Nan Memories to show you old photos of Nan province and to try to reproduce this photos now. This is a NOW photo of The house of Chao Fongkham now called Nan Noble House located in Nan. It is said to be 150 years old and originally build at the place where is now the army HQ. About 100 years ago it was moved to the place where it is now and some of the children of the Fongkham family are still living there. It is open from Wednesday to Sunday and there are always some sweet ladies to explain you everything, in Thai, about the house and how to make cotton sarongs the old fashioned way. No entrance fee but a donation is appreciated. For more information about the beautiful Nan province in North Thailand see Destination Travel Guide Nan, North Thailand.
I was there this week and talked to one of the last children who is still living there. Unfortunately her parents & grand parents did not have a camera so she has no old photos of the house. I will keep on digging. For more information see Nan Noble House. You can go inside the house with one of the lovely ladies and she will explain (in Thai) about the house. Following are some more photos of the inside and outside of the house.
