There really is nothing here worth seeing. You weren't allowed to go up to the second floor so we didn't even get a recent sea view, it was just walking around what can only be described as a clean building site. This is defintley one of those tourist traps you want to stay away from.

This is the current King's palace and you cannot visit it. As a number of other reviewers have pointed out all the photos and all the reviewers that say they have visited here have actually visited Mrigadayavan Palace. Why don't trip advisor get a grip and either delete these misleading reviews and photos or move them to the reviews of... More

As pointed out several times already...the Klai Kang Won Palace is not open to tourists. It is the Hua Hin residence of the Royal family which is located on the seaside along Phetchkasem Road a small distance north of the town center. You can recognize the Klai Kang Won Palace as a beautiful fenced in property with military personnel stationed... More

Apparently the King and Queen of Thailand reside here more so than they do in Bangkok. I was not aware that you could actually go into the compound as there were guards at every gate and stationed every so many feet outside the walls and fencing. But, it looked pretty impressive and large from street view. Grounds looked like they... More

It is not far from Hua Hin if you have a car. We really enjoy our visit there. It is super clean and very peaceful. There are some local students visiting as well. They are very polite and quiet. Love it!

Very good find, the summer palace for the King and his wives, very serene. Under going a bit of work, but the gardens and surroundings are quite superb.

Worth a visit but do not expect to see much. Most of the furniture is removed and place a bit run down.

Be noted that shorts are not allowed. You have to rent a piece of Sarong to wear as a skirt before entering the place. Good for sit in peace or even walk in peace. Take photos along the way. See ancient things in each room.
