Although it is a little bit of a hike from town, the history to be learned from the site is well worth the effort.

It was fascinating....a bit of a hike out of town, but worth it!
I liked the history, and hope it stays funded.

It is supposed to be a historical place and the summer palace of the king. Not much to see or explore and probably would not have gone if it was not on my way. couple of artefacts from the old era and not very well maintained. Expensive to visit considering the time you could spend. excellent view around from the top.

There is not much to see at the Royal Palace other than the view from the top of the hill. It is not worthwhile going out of your way to visit nor is it worth the entrance fee unless you have an special interest.

A bit far from the city , but taxis can take you there. Not much to see, it is interesting though.
