Considering how little the King appears to have had in his palace, it’s amazing there was envy at all! The mirror room is amazing, but the other rooms are a bit lacklustre. Not a lot of information either. Worth a look though. Budget 30 mins....More

I would definitely recommend visiting this wonderful museum. It was super interesting to learn more about the culture and history of the royal family. I would recommend going across the road and climbing up the stairs to the lookout, too.

Good to see that the history of the country is not lost as there is now no monarchy. Simply set out, definitely not overdone. An hour is about right. Worth a visit.

We walked around the grounds and into the temples. You need to take your shoes off to enter any of the buildings. There was a small fee to walk around. The temples were a place of beauty. Mosaic walls and many statues. If you want...More
