Designed by a German designer, this palace is a mix of east and west. At first glance things look western, but when you look upclose you can always find an eastern detail like a monkey or an elephant. Only a few rooms have the original...More

Stunning interior. We loved it. A 2 km walk from the city center (walk along the klong grachang road to see the old houses). Entrance fee for tourists is 50 baht and there are explanations in English as well.

We made our way to this Royal palace with no defined idea of what we might see. The architecture is mostly in the European style and quite modest by Thai standards. The ground floor has little to r commend it so the more able bodied...More
