The KLAI KANG WON Palace is not open to visitors. This sight keeps getting mixed up with an other Royal Palace near Hua Hin, the Rama VI summer palace called MRIGADAYAVAN or Teak Palace, a beautiful and unique spot on the beach about 15 or 20 min north of Hua Hin. This place is open every day from 8:30AM to... More

Take a taxi to the Summer Palace, known as the Teak Palace, as it is constructed of teak wood. Commissioned before air conditioners, it is a wonderful example of construction intended to maximize passive cooling. Walking through the palace was cool, refreshing and educational. Take time to walk the grounds. Wear respectful clothing. Photos are not allowed inside the palace.

A really pleasent afternoon exploring the old royal summer Palace. This gives the visitor an insight to Thailand of the early part of the last century,and how the Royal Family lived. Very interesting.

Klai Kangwon Palace in Hua-Hin is The Kings living place in Hua-Hin. Some years ago it was possible to go running to the palace garden, but not any more. While running there you couldn't see much of the palace.

Parking is easy no parking fees needed. 30baht to visit ground floor and 60baht to visit upstairs. We just bought ground floor tickets which is worth it. A very calm place with huge trees. It is not hot there. Near the beach a nice place to take pictures.

I am a bit confused to the actual name of this place. The place we visited is Maruekhathaiyawan Palace (summer palace) of Rama VI, but looking at the photos of this review page of Klai Kang Won palace seem to be the same. Apparently it is for Rama VI built in 1923 for his retreat away from Bangkok. The building... More

Beautiful buildings and grounds, and right on the beach. Worth a visit from a historical point of view. Near town so not a big deal to travel to

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.
