  • My girlfriend and I went to this palace a 6 months ago. We went there 2 times, first in the afternoon, and later in the evening. The space is covered with plenty of trees and green plants, but you...  more »
  • Nice palace in Nakornprathom that build in King Rama 6. A lot of green and building that combined of Thai and European architect.  more »
  • Was a hot afternoon when we visited this place. Proper attire is recommended when entering this place. As a friend of mine was wearing a faded with torn/slit fashioned jean was not allowed to enter until properly covered. So bear in mind of proper respectful clothing. Nothing much to see, maybe a place for learning its history, if one is interested. To cool down we stopped by near the entrance for a refreshing coconut drink & got the opportunity to see how a skilful person extract the whole coconut flesh out. Please see video included.
  • This palace was on the same grounds as my wife's college. It's bloody gorgeous. The giant komodo dragon looking lizards aren't harmful (I was told). Don't make any promises to the elephant God or offer him anything... just respect the view. Best part, look into the story in relation to the giant dog statue in memorial of King Rama the fifths dog. That's a true dog lover and a man to be respected.
  • Thai students call this place as the Disneh palace as it is inspired by western art. Free entrance for Thais for someday. Not sure about tourists but not expensive. Worthy for instragram posts
  • Modern, old and dreamlike castle can be located here. Nice garden. The trees and the water provided some cooling in the hot afternoon sun. Very tight security and many places were closed or off limit during my visit.
  • Classical palace with vast park. The palace has guides that will guide visitors through out the palace telling visitors about history about King Rama 6th and how each facility is used, and the park around the palace is vast enough for taking pictures and relaxing around. Some areas are off limit, because they are under renovation, though. The entry is free also.
