This is also called the Marble Hall. It is a grandiose Italianate reception hall build of imported white Carrara marble. It was originally intended for the use of King Rama V, but it was not completed until the reign of his son, King Rama VI, in 1915. On June 24th 1932 the plaza in front of the Hall was used... More

A very imposing, rather Italianate building that first served as a throne hall, and still accommodates special royal occasions, and also served as Thailand's first Parliament House. You must buy a ticket, must be modestly and neatly clothed, and may *not* take in cameras or similar equipment. The interior, with its painted ceilings and decorations, is spectacular. It also at...

There will be metal detectors and guards before you entered the building. Inside... More

This is a museum and a royal convention hall. There are collections of statues, paintings and items of gold and silver. You got to visit this place. I suggest you visit there after Grand Palace. You could buy a combo ticket for 500 bath for Grand Palace, Vimanmek Palace and Samakhom Hall. The last two are located in the same... More

Very scenic spot with the King Rama V Statue in front of the Throne Hall. I walked from Victory Monument station, but a Tuk-Tuk might take you for 150 THB.

Palace was designed after the one in Paris. Very beautiful Buddhist-fusion of French colonial interior design.

This was part of the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha tour. We were allowed to enter this but not allowed to take any photos. Luckily, we were in time to see the Changing of the Guards.

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood Profile
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 seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.
