The area
Neighborhood: Dusit
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.

Trees felled in Royal Chitlada palace gardens

I'm distraught to see many glorious mature trees being felled inside the palace.I always cherished the views of the Palace from outside,a sense of a wonderful nature oasis,a lovely area for people to stroll.Does anybody know why they are being felled?

Interesting cultural and historical center of Thailand!

Most people don't get the chance of entering the palace grounds, but if you are fortunate enough to be granted entry (arranged through official request of a group or institution), you will see displays of the late King's practical research and demonstrations of rural development initiatives (e.g., improved rice production, charcoal making, dairy, aquaculture, etc.) that formed the foundation for many of the Royal Projects that evolved around the country. Also a very interesting display of royal white elephants (no longer kept at the palace).

In order to review the Chitralada Palace is to review the place from only looking from the outside of the perimeter. From observation, the palace does not have the grandness of the Taj Mahal and it does not have the outstanding feature of the Buckingham Palace, but it looked like a scientific research ground of a university. The present King must have several on-going researches that were brought into the palace and still follow up with its progress. Majority of these researches are for the benefit of the Thai subject. By this observation, we should be proud of our King in his interest on the scientific researches and not on the beauty of his palace.

The actual royal palace (main Bangkok residence of the King and Queen).
Dec 2010 • Solo
This landmark is generally not open to the public. However, it's perimeter can be passed on the roads which pass by outside - and one may see a few glimses inside over fences. In recent years the King has spent much of his time in Hua Hin, and in most recent years in a hospital.
