The size of three stadiums! A must see, there were so many tourists here but it opens at 2:00 - 5:00 pm, so it's expected! Very manicured gardens and clean premises. There is History and architectural amazing.

Stunning complex of Royal Building. First sight of Throne room will make you gasp. Excellent place to visit. Toilet facilities could be better,

Paid for a guide on the large property. That is worth doing or you won't get much of the tour other than just looking at the buildings and artifacts. Nothing is well labeled, let alone in English.

Looks great from a distance but there's nothing much to see once you get in. There were some displays of silverware and furniture but there were no information or detailed description of them. Fee is expensive for the amount of nothingness you see.

Actually visited in 2013 while the King was laying at rest inside. Therefore weren't able to visit the interior. The palace and palace wall are decorated with lights, making a night time visit an appealing scene. Many mourners visited the gates both day and night and the square across from the palace was always full of people.

We had a guide take us through the grounds and enjoyed taking pictures of the buildings, french influenced architecture and stunning manicured gardens. It probably only took an hour to visit but would highly recommend the stop.

Yes, you could walk around and see all this on your own; but why. A local guide is cheap and you'll have the chance to hear about the history and the buildings which will add to your experience.

Worth a visit but I would try for a morning one, it was extremely hot at the end of a hectic day of sightseeing the wide concrete expanse was an endurance test :).
