This is a lovely wooden palace with beautiful grounds and ponds, however our tour did not include the throne hall, as it was closed (no reason was given). Still, we were able to admire it from outside and it looked lovely as well.

One of the most interesting places in Bangkok. It is incredible as the modern craftsmen produce masterpieces, that are traditional and so fine! Here you find the essence of Thai culture, a great one.

This place is very near to Grand Palace. You can walk to this place from Grand Palace. But hey note, No photos are allowed inside. This whole building is made of teak wood. Amazing work and worth to visit here. But the sad part is that you can not take any photo inside. We took photos standing outside this palace... More

Tips: - if you like to look closely to the details of every work of art and listen through all of the explanations of the audio guide (which they provide for free and in many languages) it would take...

After to getting to the gate I was told to leave my bag in a locker some 300 m from the ticket hall. On returning to the ticket hall I was told that I wasn't allowed hat sunglasses or a mobile phone either! Coupled with that, the whole place was over run by an infestation of what seemed like half...

This place is located within the Dusit palace complex. Unfortunately it is closed for repairs with no indication about this anywhere. Not sure why, but the guards here are extremely rude compared to all other places in Thailand, where they are helpful and pleasant.

Located across from the Vimanmek Mansion, this building has a Moorish architecture. This one storey building now houses exhibits which include traditional weaving, wood carving, traditional silk and ceramics. No photography allowed and proper attire rules have to be adhered here. Worth a visit if in the area.

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.
