Well my long shorts apparently weren't long enough (didn't quite cover my knees), so I had to hire a wrap around skirt sort of thing. Yes I know there are dress codes for some important temples, but this is an unused building on the beach that the King doesn't visit any more. Nice grounds and landscaping though.

This is a very nice & green park where one can appreciate the breezy royal summer residence. No pictures or shoes allowed in the building. The staff provides a sarong for you if you do not look covered enough and they also provide a cloth bag for you to carry your shoes with you. The breezy wooden corridors are long... More

We went there hoping to see a lot of grand furniture and paintings but the ticketing ladies told us the next batch allowed to go into the first floor viewing hall is in an hour's time, they asked whether we are willing to wait and walk around on the ground floor first. We were quite in a rush, so we... More

Even though many sections were closed, unlike 20 years ago when I visited as a child, the place still has its charm and mysterious attractiveness for many visitors to look around and imagine how the people in this old palace used to live their lives. It was a fascinating experience as usual. The architecture was yet again still very elegant... More

This a beautiful palace settled in a nice garden , rigth in the beach (not accesible from the palace) Even if there is usually many people visiting it , they allow only small groups each 15min . You must visit it barefoot , silent , not running ... Good for the visit . Dont miss it .

The place is really peaceful, quiet and tranquil. You can really relax your mind while visiting the royal palace. A lot of transcripts or descriptions are in Thai so it was not really comprehensible to tourists. The area is huge with plenty of raintrees and in fact, I took more photos of the trees and garden bench than the palace... More
