Amazing building, with a lot of objects to be seen inside. No camera's allowed unfortunately. No hats, no sunglasses, no phone and so on. Just your wallet is allowed. Buy the ticket at the small building before entering the throne hall.

If you are an architectural buff, this is the place for you! And together with the rest, marvel at how magnificent the throne hall is! Immerse yourself as you walk through the halls where real kings and queens walk! Inside, you will be in awe of the artwork that decorated the dome and the ceiling above.

Sadly all the beauty and investment into reviving ancient Thai art and providing work for farmers off season was overshadowed by unfairly charging women more than men to enter. Simply put there is an archaic dress code which requires a sarong or skirt. Even women fully covered in pants must wear a sarong. Culturally this would be acceptable if the... More

First of all, we would like to thank you for visiting us at the Arts of the Kingdom museum. We hope that you enjoyed the exhibition from the SUPPORT Foundation of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. The Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is an inner courtyard of the palace and is considered sacred ground to the Thai people. Her Majesty was kind... More

We went to this Palace today, as the Grand Palace was closed due to the King passing away. We did not have very high expectations, as this place does not seem to be very popular with tourists, and a lady we asked said it was average. Well, the place was worth the relatively long taxi journey! The entrance fee is... More

Spectacular grounds highlight your visit here! We didn't bother with an inside tour and just enjoyed the outside grounds. Check out the golden building behind the Throne Hall, it's the star here!

An amazing building of continental style, this royal premises stood out from the rest of oriental Bangkok. The lawn was beautiful and tourists should be aware of the requirements of visitors' attire.

We wanted to go but did not managed to enter due to the crowds coming to pay their respects to the late king. If you are in Bangkok right now, i recommend you go have a look and sign the book for the king. I am speechless by the love i have seen this people give to its former king.... More

Early morning is the best time to go. Try to beat the masses to it. Nice place to visit. A mix of different architectural types.

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood Profile
Dusit
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.
