Every year, people in France have a chance to visit the hidden treasures of less well-known sites such as banks, courts, prefectures, chambers of commerce etc., all sorts of buildings that are usually closed to the public or rarely visited. European Heritage Days in France are held on the third weekend of September. In Bangkok we also have a chance to join European Heritage Days by visiting the French Embassy. The original building dates back to the 1830’s, however it has been added onto extensively during the 20th Century. Then during the last decade it went through another series of renovations to modernize it. During the open day, you are allowed up to the living room and large dining room on the second floor, then down to the reception room on the ground floor and the swimming pool around the back.
