nothing like the palace in BKK. Much less open and grand. Not worth the entry fee in our opinion. if you have both time and money to spend then perhaps.

Cost $10 entry each admission- no info provided, so unless you come with your guidebook - which we didn't- then I would advise getting a guide who are available to hire at the entrance for a cost of I think another $10 at least. The...More

Not as extensive as Bangkok but worthwhile even though you can only view buildings from the exterior. A guide will explain things to you but so will a good guidebook!

The Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda are well worth a visit but be aware that you cannot go into the majority of the buildings. The grounds are busy and the building are stunning and we happily wandered around for a couple of hours until...More

I honestly don't know, part of the palace was closed when we visited due to a state visit by someone from Belgium, didn't see any notices indicating scheduled closures whilst we were there.....

Hi there - You can probably spend 1-1.5 hours max in the entire palace and be fine. I can remember the exact fee, but was reasonable (under 7$ US I think). No tour guide required. No restaurants inside the palace, buy... More
