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.

Klai Kang Won 'Far from Worries' Palace is where the King and Queen of Thailand have lived for the past year or so. That being the case you certainly cannot see it or visit it.

it was a rainy day in Hua Hin and we did not really have chance to view the Palace. The surrounding is really pretty and the palace is gorgeous.

The pictures and reviews mistakenly posted here are of the Mrigadayavan Palace which is open to the public. The Klai Kang Won Palace (which is apparently Spanish or Florida style) is NOT open to the public as far as I know because that's the palace where the King resides. You can only see the gate etc from the road.

Beautiful palace to walk around. Lots of food kiosk outside at the parking space, there is also the A/C coffee shop. You can rent the bicycle to ride around the mangrove and along the beach.. Good view.
