The palace renovation and restoration is still in progress. May be less than 50% done. It would look really great once completed. But, it was still a worthwhile visit there. Make sure to take the ticket to see upstairs as there's nothing to see downstairs. Unfortunately no photography allowed upstairs. Information provided there is limited but still gives some level...

It is the 2nd time we've been to the palace. However, it is the first time we bring our son along. This time is a bit different as the king passed away early this year. So it is a bit sad and some places has covered by black cloth. Also, the building is now under renovation work and some rooms... More

This palace is between Cham-am and Hua Hin, hence we dropped by after spending the earlier part of the day at Cham-Am when heading back to Hua Hin. We were initially unsure whether GPS was... More

This palace is set in superb gardens with some magnificent trees. Reasonable entrance fee of 30b for the gardens and 30b for the palace. Interesting architecture. If you are incorrectly dressed you will be asked to wear a sarong to cover your knees or a shawl for shoulders, free with discretionary donation. An hour for the gardens. Not sure about... More

Here, lies the humble and great palace of a king, one and only in the world. Preserved and respected place as history being visited once more. As a nature lover, i am very well pleased at the scenic place from flowers, plants, trees and the seaside. A great landscape it is fit for a King.
