Dusit Palace

Vajira Hospital 295 Ratchasima Rd, Dusit, Bangkok, 10300

The Basics

The Dusit Palace complex houses a number of museums and cultural attractions. One of the finest buildings is the hexagonal-roofed Vimanmek Teak Mansion, apparently built without nails. It was Rama V’s home in the early years of last century. Visitors who want to see inside must take a guided tour (in English), which depart regularly. Many travelers visit independently as there are many things to see and do at the park. Some guided tours of Bangkok also include Dusit Palace.
