The Palace is calm, light and airy and relatively peaceful; set in extensive grounds with trees shrubs and flowers. The Palace is quite extensive with a good variety of rooms and items to view and read about. Entrance fees are reasonable and the usual clothing restrictions apply.

Visited the palace with friends to show a visitor around Hua Hin. Always been curious about this and it was not disappointment. The location is good being next to the beach. The bathing area of the servants have chairs leading up to the next chamber where it was great to relax and stare out to the sea. The gardens are... More

Interesting venue in a peaceful setting. It's well maintained, very reasonably priced, and worth the time to visit.

A sprawling compound - most of the structures are wooden made decades back and takes you back to the old times. Has been nicely maintained - do not miss the small items on display.

You have to have proper clothing. Parking just outside and also shops to buy clothes and food at. You are going to be outdoors for the most time. This is also a non smoking area. The building is big and it is very quiet. Bring some water before enter. There is a small extra fee for going upstairs inside the... More

There is also a bird hide and many cycle paths. It is 30 bhat to enter the grounds and another 30... More

Also v strict on dresscode - I recommend skirt below knee (or long shorts) and blouse with short sleeves. You can borrow shawls to cover... More
