This palace dates back to a long time ago so it's very antique Thai-style palace. Another main scene for my wedding photo shooting. Monkeys there are very interesting but aggressive so be very cautious of your personal stuff from being taken by those naughty friends.

This is a massive complex so, allow a good 2 hours to enjoy the place and imagine the sheer opulence of a past era. You can wander almost anywhere with a few rooms furnished just as they were when the King and Court were there - although you can only view these from the doors or windows.

on revisiting the palace after a few years it was very sad to see that the ongoing maintenance is so slow that parts of the structure are not available to enter.still interesting but hope it is not allowed to fall into more disrepair.

The palace is the King's residence and is not open to the public. The only way of seeing it, is from the road or as you walk by.

Don't confuse it with Mrigadayavan Palace which is located close to Cha Am not in Hua Hin! Here in Klai Kan Won you can only walk or run in park in special hours for visit. 5:30-7:30 in morning and 16:00-19:00 evening hours. You have to wear a proper t-shirt, short and shoes. You have to left you phone before entering... More

loved visiting this place. It was especially magical because the instrumentalists were practising at the time.

A beautifully restored and well maintainted part of Thai History. The old Summer Palace, on the edge of the Gulf of Thailand just a short tuk tuk ride from Hua Hin town centre. A definite must for any visitors 'to do' list and in my humble opinion well worth the visit.

It was pleasant to spend the afternoon walking around the palace and listen to the history. It was breezy and the palace itself a wonderful place to see the architecture that's a mix between European and Thai..The building maintenance is a bit lacking but fair compares to other palaces we have seen in Bangkok.. Our highlight was renting the bike... More

One of the quintessential landmarks of Hua Hin, Klai Kang Won Palace is the summer residence of HM King Bhumibhol Adulyadej (Rama IX) and other members of the royal family. Klai Kang Won, meaning ‘far from worries’, is aptly named after the peace and serenity of the surrounding landscape, fronting a secluded stretch of the Hua Hin beachfront.

It was really beautiful place for me. I went there by taxi from central Hua Hin. It was pretty far. The building and the garden were really beautiful. I could here some Thai music they were playing. I will recommend this place.
