The palace is by the sea and it is a nice place for photoshooting. You can also rent a bicycle to ride inside the garden, i think it only cost 20baht for the renting fees. And make sure that you are wearing tops with sleeve + long pants / skirts before entering the palace. (Singlet, shorts not available)

This should be on the tour but mercifully it isn't (although some days is can be busy with Thai coach parties). Pay the extra 40 baht and make sure you go upstairs. No air conditioning required here with sea breezes flowing through the rooms. Take the time to read the function of each room and its furnishings and build the... More

One of the summer residences of the King. Nice garden and one of the few cultural things worth viseting while in Hua Hin. It does only take about 20-30 mins to visit the entire property. The palace itself is all open and most rooms have no furniture. No real explaining happening but still fascinating to see how its all set... More

Interesting place for a wander and a few pics. Lovely old style architecture and craftsmanship. Worth an hour or two of your time during a visit to Hua Hin.
