Very pleasant visit of this palace. Located on the beach, this magnificent palace on stilts is a visit not to be missed. Beautiful architecture and soft colors. Pity not to have been able to visit inside because of works.

On our passing Chinese New Year's holiday, we had travelled to Cha-am and Hua Hin for 3 days 2 nights. As we had stayed at The Regent Cha-am Beach Resort, it was very near the palace. Around 5 minutes, we arrived to the gate of Pra Ram 6 Camp (ค่ายพระราม 6) and we the banner of Mrigadayawan Palace (พระราชนิเวศน์มฤคทายวัน) was... More

Unexpectatly the palace itself was not open to the public when we arrived (after paying the entrance fee). Nice gardens and beachfront. Lots of souvenir shops near parking.

This is a nice place to stop by, but it does not take long to see it all and there is not really that much to do except walk through the palace and look into several of the rooms.. Some history and descriptions are provided by signs, but no that much. Maybe a tour guide could help?

This is the former king's summer palace, not to be confused with the current one which you can't visit. It is entirely built of teak around 1925. Long huge open air walkways with various corners filled in as suites of rooms. Long before aircon and yet built in an amazing design that is cool. Right on the beach in beautiful... More

This experience is mainly too see the compound and enjoy the sea breeze. If your knees are visible you will be provided a (hot) garment, so dress decently :)

A pleasantly situated palace, by the sea, with green park surroundings. Built in traditional Thai teak , beautifully carved, interesting rooms laid out for easy access. All above ground on stilts, taking advantage of the pleasant breeze from the sea. Nice souvenir shop, reasonable prices, great iced coffee and ice cream.

This is an old summer palace the Thai government are trying to save. It worth the visit since the work performed by carpenters and others is quite amazing. The place is on the sea shore with a cool breeze helping to enjoy the large garden Really deserve your time!

The palace isn't very big. The architecture is simple traditional Thai which matches perfectly with the green environment. The sea view is great and the sea breeze makes you feel refreshed! The big trees is the thing I love the most though. A good scenic spot for any travellers'
