  • If you're doing the palace, definitely stop here as well. It's quite impressive and lovely inside. The biggest drawback is that the floor is covered in silver but to protect it, much of it is covered ...  more »
  • There are more interesting than the Royal Palace the pagoda of money with comprehensive explanations and beautiful things to see. Many guides offer comments... but this is not necessary. Visit informative and supplemented by smaller museums still in ' the Palace.
