This is a lovely place to visit, although not accessible by SkyTrain, however, it is well worth making the effort to visit. It is an oasis of calm and tranquility in Bangkok. The grounds are vast and there is so much to see and do, a whole day is not really enough. Highly recommended

On the last day of our Thailand Trip, we visited Dusit Park. What made it so unforgettable is seeing the treasure inside Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall. It is really an exceptional exhibit of the finest arts and crafts. From the exhibit, one can learn their culture, their history. From the intricately made Busabok Mala, to models of Royal Barges, to the wood-carved screen with scenes from traditional Thai tales, and to the embroidered screen using the ancient Thai embroidery technique using the finest silk threads. A one of a kind exhibit indeed! Also another must see at Dusit Park is the Vimanmek mansion, world's largest golden teak building. Amazing to know that this mansion was just moved to its present place just in 1910... The Dusit Park is really a must-see place when you visit Thailand!

Its a magnificent park whose western influence in its manicured gardens,teak mansions and genteel architecture. Highlights include Vimanmek mansion,the world's largest golden teak building. a visit can happily take a full day. There is a museum which has photos and paintings of regal figures from former dynasties .
Progress through the lovely garden to the ancient cloth and silk museum displaying different types of Thai silk. Then follow the water course to the royal Carriage museum which has unusual and interesting vehicles ,antique cars and ceremonial carriages.
Now for something different, step into Vinanmek mansion,more like a victorian mansion than a Thai palace,this three storied golden teak structure built using pegs not nails.is full of intriguing artifacts offering pleasant views across the lake to some fine traditional thai teak houses.
Finally,check out the Old Clock Museum and Dusit Throne hall with its fanciful ornamented white edifice housing collections of traditional crafted artifacts with a stand-out work of exquisiteely colored wings of jewelled beetles.

Definitely not love at first sight! With the exception of the Ananata Samakhon Throne Hall that has some interesting pieces inside, the rest is worth a visit only if you had seen everything else Bangkok has to offer and you need to kill some time. It can be missed if your stay in Bangkok is only few days.
Women must wear a sarong because pants are not allowed inside the Throne Hall. It is not possible to rent it, but only to buy it for 50B.

We go to dusit park on Friday afternoon, the weather is nice so we took a long rest in the park, taking some picture in the garden, and take a chat with my friends, clean and fresh air at the park. Don't have the chance to enter the mansion but that's ok.
