  • You have to use proper clothes, no short skirts, shorts, sleeveless. You have to borrow extra cloth from them and pay 20 thb/person
  • Magnificent palace! It's really nice place to visit. Beautiful architecture and the garden.
  • If you want to be in a quick retreat, this place is perfect for you. This is a holy place. Silent, tidy, and is located 10 minutes walk to the sea shore. Amazing!
  • A beautiful garden and renovated buildings. Very quiet and peaceful. This place is a bit far, we book a van to go there (and other attractions), some people take cab there, not sure about public transport availability. Go there early, as it closed at 4pm. Free admission, but extra 30 baht to access more places and exhibits. We were late, so we just walk around the palace, the garden and site seeing. Proper attire, strictly no shorts, you have to cover your shoulders to knees. Sarong provided outside of the entrance.
  • Now this place was refurbished.and I wonder why this place alow only one entrance, in fact goolgle suggest enter in the many way, just open your mine when you need to traveller to visit this place ,not security but only tourist to get inside this place.
