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.

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
