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.
My tour was running late so we didn't have enough time to linger here. A diverse selection of buddha sculpture styles ring the inner temple, which has beautiful lighting. Furnished with Italian marble, including inlaid floors, built by King Rama V.
"Last day at Dusit Zoo: now it’s closed for good!"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by Dan K
Sunday 30 September was the last possibility to visit Dusit Zoo. The zoo has closed for good and will me moved to a bigger location in Thanyaburi.
I must say the Thai concept of a zoo differs a lot from a western point of view. There where food markets and cars driving around.
The zoo wasn’t that bad. The animals...
A little out of the way for most tourists, but worth seeking out. The ordination hall is gorgeous, with a big (11 ft. high) Buddha and some lovely murals. The nearby mondop is topped by a brilliant golden "steeple and the exterior is exceptionally pretty. Also in the same complex is the Golden Teak Museum.
I'm distraught to see many glorious mature trees being felled inside the palace.I always cherished the views of the Palace from outside,a sense of a wonderful nature oasis,a lovely area for people to stroll.Does anybody know why they are being felled?
We had visited this place for dinner whilst in Bangkok after my friend had recommended it when she had lunch there. It is in a suburban area and a little hard to find. We had soft shell crab to start which was delicious and then I had beef curry. It was tasty. You sit on the water so the view...
Found this little authentic Thai eatery not far from our hostel with good reviews. No idea what we ordered but the rice came in a heart shape and the food was very tasty, albeit spicier than Geri, Mel B and Mel C combined
Lovely food, full of flavor and aroma. Variety dish to choose from, I tried 7 dishes and all was excellence. Kaeng Pa is recommended, fish belly is also good and wild boar stir fry with bamboo-shoot is all my favorite. Parking is next door in post office(sneak in) or on the road side. Didn't call for book and have plenty...
While the Siam Hotel looks great in photos, it pales in comparison to the splendor of actually being there. Indeed one of the best hotels in the world. Ultimate luxury without pretense or ostentatiousness. Walking the halls is a history lesson. The Curio shop is like no other. The Vinyl room has amongst the best collection of records I’ve ever...
This hotel is small, and located very near Dusit Zoo. It has a nice restaurant, and is linked to the Suan Dusit Rajabhat University. It's a little out of the way, but there are several buses which can take you to Victory Monument, from where you can take the metro (BTS). It is also near the Vimanmek Mansion, which is...
Really lovely owner and staff.
Nice,simple and cozy room. And loved the fresh fruits on breakfast.
Wifi worked well. Cozy atmosphere all around. 7/11 behind the corner.
Little far away from everything, about 20 minutes walk to Khao San. There isn't restaurants near.
There wasn't hand soap in rooms.
We stay here for 3 days, 10 person!
Clean hotel and nice staff! But room is too small, bathroom is the same! It’s not like in the pictures when i book this hotel!
Thanks for take care of my family but i think i will not come back again!
We have just arrived and I must say it's a very nice place.
For what I can make out and as the wife informed me it was part of the university campus now turned into a hotel. But please don't quote me on this as I could be wrong and may of got it wrong when not really listening to...
