We went there in January, for us the weather was perfect not too hot but might be too chilly for Thais. We enjoyed seeing the bedroom of the King Rama 6 as a summer villa or holiday villa. King Rama 6 designed this palace which consisted of teak and long path to walk. It was special for me to see... More

Mrigadayavan Palace is a "must see" for anyone visiting the Cha-Am/Hua Hin area. It is a magnificently restored golden teak palace built by King Rama VI in 1924 as a summer getaway from the heat of Bangkok. There are a total of 16 buildings, all connected by elevated walkways. The whole palace, built in the Thai-Victorian style, is designed to... More

The palace is huge and beautiful but don't expect it to be like any Indian or UK Palaces. The palace is on stilts due to the it being on the beach. We visited only the Royal Court as the timing to visit the rooms is only after 12.30 pm. There is a strict dress code. No sleeveless or shorts. They... More

If you happen to be at Cha-am and would like to visit some place, this is a one of the places to go for and spend time. Its a quiet beach side, although you may not be able to walk in the beach. Palace is several small long house or court room type, simple and elegant. You may travel there... More

The palace is located on an old Army base, a few kilometers from Phekasem Road. Driving to the palace is easy. Chartering a taxi is 250 baht from Cha Am. If you catch an orange bus and get dropped off at the entrance gate the walk is about 35 minutes (2.8kms). The entrance fee is 30 baht for both Thai... More

A relaxing place to take a sneak peek into what life must have been like for the royals at their summer palace. The striking flame trees add such a nice splash of colour. Don't forget to cover your bare legs and arms all throughout your time inside the area; the palace attendees would even reprimand you if you happen to... More

The Mrigadayavan Palace was the former royal residence and beachside home to King Rama VI. The palace is made up on a number of beautifully crafted teakwood buildings, all connected by covered walkways on the first and second levels. Set amongst lush greenery bordered by the beach, you will soon find yourself lost in the peace and serenity. The palace... More

Worthwhile to spend a morning there if you are in Hua Hin for a couple of days or more. Love the tree looking out from the palace out to the sea. Should wear something that don't expose too much skin and be prepared to remove shoes while walking around the palace.

Beautiful, quiet and airy summer palace built way back for King Rama VI and his entourage. Visited in early June, the flamboyant tree was in full blossom and was just simply gorgeous. One just had to imagine how the King and the Queen lived those days without aircon. A great little place to spend an hour or so to learn... More

Walking around the grounds feel like being transported back in time. With the sea breeze blowing as we strolled along the palace grounds, one can imagine what people did at that time without technological devices for entertainment. That would be the real definition of relaxing. The palace itself is very well maintained, and a very nice place to visit with... More
