I took the English speaking tour at 2pm and it was worthwhile as I learned a lot from the guide. Tour took about an hour and is included in the 100 baht admittance price.
Wear long pants. Short sleeve shirts and sandals are acceptable (shoes are removed before entering building).
You must put everything in a locker - cost is 20baht. No cameras, phones etc are allowed inside. You go through a metal detector and they give you a very thorough hand search.
Closed on Mondays.

The mansion used to be King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) residence and now turned a museum. It is also the world's biggest building made by golden teak wood.

Maybe not the other half... only the richest among the rich could afford to live like that. The palace will take your breath away and you would probably get green with jealousy looking at the lifestyle of the Thai royalty. Don't miss it.
