If you visited the Grand Palace, you got a free ticket to visit this mansion. The king was inspired by Versailles, and while nowhere near in terms of scale, it is still very interesting to see. Not too many people here, but getting inside the...More

One of the quiet gems of Thai mansion complexes in Bangkok. Usually very under-visited, lots of history to absorb, modest details to explain the displays and buildings. Well worth a visit if you like history.

This beautiful teak building and surrounding gardens was a winner for me. It takes the edge off the over-decorated grandeur and strikes you as a pleasant country house. Clean and ordered while steeped in Siamese history. Loved the Thai dancing by the moats around the...More

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
