Ban Sila Suwan (Sila Suwan House) Tha Chalom, Muang Samut Sakhon, Samut Sakhon. Ban Sila Suwan is a precious golden teak Thai traditional house. This house belongs to the old merchant “Sila Suwan” family.
Ban Sila Suwan is a 2 storey house, with a structure imitated from teak house around Tanon Tok Road (Bangkok) in the old days. The construction was finished in 1922.
The house has intricately splendid design, with an architectural blend between Thai traditional house and the European gingerbread ornamentation, which was popular during the reign of King Rama VI.
Ban Sila Suwan was wholly made of golden teak, with a laced Manila gable roof, tooth-like ridges on the sloping edges of the gable, and vents.
It has lathed posts with decorated sharp tops. The lower part of the building has stenciled tooth-like ridges along the sloping edges of the gable end.  
The house is 28 meters wide, 16 meters high. The ground floor is an open space. The second floor has ladders on two sides. The front of the house is a roomy hall, with 5 rooms of the same space at the back.
The names of each room are rhymed, which is Palangjit Pratan, Athitthan Baramee, Buppakareeyan, Vimarn Kunavorn, Pronsanong Uthai.
Each of the room is adorned with precious and beautiful antiques, such as porcelain, and lacquerware. Inside also exhibits the replica of the first engine steamboat named “Ruea Sudsakorn” (Sudsakorn Boat) built by Grandpa Thet Sila Suwan as well.
At present, Mrs. Paveena Takhiennuch (Sila Suwan) is the owner of the house. Baan Sila Suwan has been undertaken several restoration works until it is in the perfect condition for travellers to visit.
