For me, this place is the most beautiful place in Bangkok. Here, we can see many collection of the Thai kingdom and learn the history. So artistic and majestic. Only one thing i regret, taking picture is forbidden, so we should put our stuff first before entering it. And don't forget to use skirt for woman, because they won't allow... More

Unfortunately, we could see the place from outside only. We were there on the day when a "million" Chinese tourists were visiting the place so the line for groups was like a quarter of a mile long. The 150 bath ticket offers the entrance, for individual visitors, fortunately, without queing in the line for groups. Taking photos inside is not... More

A very busy museum, lots of tourist groups with loud guides (and some rude tourists too)! Mostly these groups can be avoided (they rather rush through) and otherwise an excellent visit. The exhibits are well worth seeing, especially the silk embroidery screens. Look out for exhibition of the prize winning small embroidery panels – some are utterly amazing. Find time... More

I went along December 2016. Big mix up trying to get in which wasn't good. Went to one gate and was told no entry as I had a bag? Then told to goto another gate to be told no entry. Then ended up at a third gate and finally got in. I got my ticket and then was told I... More

After a long walk from the car park and through security, the impressive building wouldn't look out of place in UK or France, a newly built Buddist temple in front of a marble façade. Be warned appropriate dress must be worn, long skirts, shoulders covered, long trousers for men. There are security lockers for mobile phones and cameras as no... More

Great Craftwork. but it was boring to heard about King and Queen. every introduce comment has a King and Queen's greatness. I felt awkward. because Nation Museum was not have Airconditioning even barricade for protection. I felt here is fidelity for King and Queen

This relatively small palace is not always open to the public. Check in advance. Try not to miss it. The building is a copy of a similar palace built in Europe, therefore not artistically exciting and in sharp contrast with the Thai architecture. The real artistic treasures are inside. An incredible array of Thai masterpieces. Sculptures, wood carvings and objects... More

Every artifact in this throne hall is very beautiful and displays the fine craftsman ship of ancient times. Definitely worth he visit. Note that you are not allowed to take cellphone, camera, sunglasses, hats, etc inside and need to be fully covered with your clothes or buy a sarong (50 Bahts).

Visited while the Arts of the Kingdom Museum from the Queen Sirikit Institute was on. A truly spectacular display of hand crafted art pieces made of gold, silver, silk wood and bugs. The building itself was very interesting with the Renaissance given a Thai flavour. The continual tour groups going through the venue were very well managed and I didn't... More

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
