Designed by a German architect in 1910 and completed in 1916 this palace has not only a lovely facade, but also impressive interior. Modelled after the summer palace of the German keiser Willhelm, the rooms are high-ceilinged and artfully decorated. Shame pictures are not allowed...More

If I went into detail I would mainly be echoing what other reviewers have already written. A shame photographs cannot be taken of the superb green marble staircase inside. A very good way to kill an hour en route from either Hua-Hin or Bangkok.

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

The palace is really something different from other things you will see in Thailand. It has nice green area around, but the interior is not worth spending this 50 bath, really. Downstairs you will see only white walls and there are only two rooms interesting...More
