  • You can walk around the palace with proper outfit. If you don't have long trousers there is a place where you can rent one for free. The palace is next to the ocean and the architect is very elegant and beautiful But if you come under the big sun then you may have sweat alot.
  • 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.
