Worth getting the guided tour as part of the entry price (200 THB) though we learnt that it would be free if you visited The Grand Palace. ( We have been to the Grand Palace on previous trips). The food served at the restaurant in the grounds was good.

This teak wood mansion, is within the same premises as Anantha Samkhom Throne Hall. It is beautiful although not as grand as the other palaces. Can take a look if you have time!

I have been to Bangkok many times and I am not sure how I missed this gem. Beautiful grounds with a very interesting history of the wonderful mansion. Make sure you take plenty of pictures OUTSIDE, as you wont be allowed to take ANY pictures inside. Anything that can take a picture (camera, cell phone, tablet.. etc.. etc) is not... More

Tickets for Vimanmek Mansion is usually included in Grand palace tickets (a free combo). Because of my bad sequencing, I had to buy tickets! A huge place built with some special wood. Thy way this mansion is organized creates a great feel. Time worth spending.

This Teak Mansion is worth a visit to see the amazing architecture and also the collection of artefacts that are housed in the Mansion itself. Very interesting indeed!

Grand old residence full of ageing items which probably could be better looked after but interesting all the same. Look out for the hunting trophies juxtaposed with a table full of typewriters - the collections are a bit random and not all labelled, even in Thai, let alone English or other foreign languages. I didn't have enough time for the... More

Beautiful building, nicely maintained royal furniture and paraphernalia, beautiful gardens and very peaceful (centrally air-conditioned). Ticket is included in Grand palace ticket - so if you retain your palace ticket, then this one is free/included. Also Throne hall meusem is in this place (ask staff for directions)
