It's a very remote place to be, however, it's worth for a visit. We spent around an hour to take a slow walk, enjoying sea breeze and imagine ourselves as Royal Thai ( as we were wearing the rental Thai outfit). There is a history gallery walk, a souvenir shop and a small eateries. Outside the palace also have a... More

This place can be a paint to get to: Instead of a 300 baht cab ride or overpriced rental car or something, the owner of the hostel I was staying at told me the easiest way to visit the Mrigadayavan Palace is to take the orange public buses that leave from half a block away on the main road for...

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. Shoes have to be removed before entering the Palace and bags are supplied... More

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.
