The closest thing we have to time travel are museums. Walking through the hallways of a history museum and seeing artefacts from the past give us a clue on how people used to live. On the other hand, technology and science galleries showcase what the future may look like. And of course, there are those specialised museums like art exhibits that transport us to a whole new world. Fascinated? Here are five interesting museums in Southeast Asia that you shouldn't miss.
National Museum of the Philippines Complex
Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia
Bangkok National Museum
After visiting the Grand Palace, head over to the Bangkok National Museum which showcases art pieces and note-worthy artefacts of the Thai Kingdom. Inside you'll see the extensive olden collections including the precious King Ram Khamhaeng inscription which is said to be one of the first evidence of the Thai inscription. Other historical items that you'll see are royal emblems, traditional garments, weaponry, musical instruments and old transportation devices.
