Every artifact in this throne hall is very beautiful and displays the fine craftsman ship of ancient times. Definitely worth he visit. Note that you are not allowed to take cellphone, camera, sunglasses, hats, etc inside and need to be fully covered with your clothes or buy a sarong (50 Bahts).

Visited while the Arts of the Kingdom Museum from the Queen Sirikit Institute was on. A truly spectacular display of hand crafted art pieces made of gold, silver, silk wood and bugs. The building itself was very interesting with the Renaissance given a Thai flavour. The continual tour groups going through the venue were very well managed and I didn't... More

Admission fee is 150baht. A lot of tourists in the morning session. Have to wear proper attire for admission.

It was nice but not great. So you have a mixture of 19th and 18th century french and english architecture in the middle of an Asian city.. interesting but for some it might seem a little cheap. NOt because of the materials but because I feel Thai architecture already has a lot to offer and a fusion of both might... More

The building itself is done European style (kind of classicistic), so maybe not so "exotic" or "interesting" to the Western visitor looking for something genuinely Thai. However, the art and handicraft museum on the inside is absolutely impressive, so definitely worth a visit!

Women, do NOT buy sarongs from outside vendors. They’re ripping tourists off at 100B a sarong now. Go inside the museum instead, as they seem to be selling the stuff at 50B. Better yet, wear your own long skirts for the day.

Thank you, for the feedback. :) Yes, we do encourage visitor to dress as the palace requirement. If not possible, then we have the sarong provided at the ticket building for 50 baht (which could be worn by both men and women) The museum do not take any part nor support any vending outside the premises as it is against...

We went to Ananta Samakhom on Sunday. My wife paid 50 Bahts for sarong to cover her pants. We paid 150 Bahts a ticket. We kept our sunglasses and cell phones in a locker near the ticket office. A cell phone or a camera is not allowed inside. The ceiling was beautiful, golden, and amazing. The art works upstairs were... More

I had the chance to visit this magnificent Palace with my parents. Its really beautiful from afar yet more magnificent inside. We didnt go inside the palace cause pictures from the outside are more than enough of our experience. P.S. Jumpshots are not allowed with due respect to the place/culture but its really worth a jumpshot (ecstatic mood).

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
