Inside the massive European-style hall, exquisite murals are painted on the inside of the dome depicting the reign of the Chakri Dynasty – an interesting juxtaposition of East and West. The first floor of the hall houses a stunning exhibition of Thai fabrics.

The palace makes a good stop when paired with the other sites in Dusit Park. Expect to spend no more than in hour in the palace, but a trip to Dusit Park could easily last half a day or more.

How to get there
The hall is located in Dusit Park just near Vimanmek Palace. To reach the park, buses 5, 18, 56, 70, 72, 503 and 515, all pass within a reasonable walking distance.
