It is rare that you can simply stroll the grounds of a major attraction and feel satisfied, then go in and be blown away! Vimanmek is good for a half-day if you want. My second visit we brought a picnic and enjoyed it on the grounds after the tour. Recommend you take a standard group tour, then hang back and ask a question or two of one of the docents on break...twice I've received a private tour with complete detail that way. It can be rough on the feet, if you're not used to walking long distances in your socks, but it is worth the trouble!

One of the world biggest teak wood mansion!! Waw, imagine you live there... It was built by the king <RamaV> hundreds years ago. With a lot of story to learn about Thai culture and history. Won't regret going there.

Dusit Park includes Vimanmek Mansion, the Throne Hall and numerous other museums located in the various buildings. Be prepared to walk between the attractions, and there is a dress code for the Throne Hall (wrap-arounds are sold for 40 baht). The Throne Hall includes a fabulous display of Thai crafts in the ground floor section. Vimanmek Mansion involves a guided tour. If there is not one due to take place in your language then you may be admitted independently. There are several eating places throughout the park. I chose the one near the Throne Hall. To enjoy the gardens as well as the other attractions before it gets too hot then I suggest getting there in the morning. There are separate admission charges to the two main features.

An astonishing structure of olden days which can not be seen in the present days. The halls and rooms are filled up with antiques which no one should miss to see and admire.

We visited on the back of the Grand Palace ticket (ie FOC entry). But when we got th Vimanmek, we were not allowed to take photos, & were told we had to leave all our bags (purses, wallets, phones, cameras etc ) in lockers. Plus had to wear appropriate dress (ie knees, shoulders & cleavage covered). We chose not to go in, but walked round & looked at the other places in Dusit Park area.
