Visit one of the world's largest teakwood structures at Vimanmek Mansion, an early 20th-century complex known for its lush gardens. Built in 1900 as a royal palace, the mansion once provided a home for King Rama V. Renovated in 1982, the palace now commemorates the king's life and displays his photographs and art collection, as well as other Thai national heritage artifacts. Guided tours in Thai and English are available. Remember to dress conservatively when visiting this site--inappropriate clothes include shorts, ripped pants, and T-shirts.

  • According to a local Bangkok online mag - Coconuts - the mansion has been demolished. It is no longer on the site - the Coconut shows an aerial view of the mansion in 2018 and in July 2019 it is gone....  more »
  • Still closed. Whole area inaccessible due to metal fence work and construction site. Basically a massive police controlled compound.  more »
