Klai Kang Won Palacethe place is under a vast refurbishment but still worth a visit, entry fee was 60 Tbt which goes along with various donation boxes dotted around the place towards the upkeep, when we visited we were told that you cannot go upstairs as this is still being renovated , you can however take a while and stroll around the grounds, there is a gift shop and small tea room at the end of the tour, also there are various attractions relating to the history of the palace. on comping out of the palace there are several bars, shops and restaurants,not fine dining but a traditional place to eat.one tip arrange your transport before you go as we did and had a 8km walk back to our hotel but hey it was a nice day!!
King Rama VII of Thailand built a summer house for himself and the queen in Hua Hin, which later became a resort for successive Kings of Thailand. Construction of this palace began in 1926 and was completed in 1933. The entire palace is modeled on Spanish architecture to match the tropical climate of Hua Hin. There are three big palaces in the palace, namely Tamnak Plukkasem in the north and Tamnak Noi in the south. The largest Phra Tamank is between the two palaces. The entourage of the royal family and nobles will sleep in some small bungalows. Closed on Wednesday.
