  • A beautifully kept part of Thai history without any frills, pomp or pageantry. Everything you'd expect to find in a holiday shack but on a scale reflecting the status of the King of Siam.  more »

  • 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.
  • There is a crowd control with maximum limit of 500 ppl allowed to visit the palace a day. When you purchased the ticket there is a designated time for you to visit the palace. In the meantime there is some nice facade (ie teak tree, nice alleyway) to kill some time before u visit the palace
  • The place is highly recommended for people who wants to reminise the history and actual reinforced standing structures. An which the land meets the see for those fan of sideseeing and refreshing
  • 30 bath entrance fee & 30 baht to the 1st floor. Respect dress code. There are guests limit to the first floor, time to entry print at the ticket when you bought the ticket. Structure during renovation, vertain part prohibat to entry.
