Phra Ram Ratchaniwet

Reviewed By williamrT5344UQ - Tacoma, United States

This is truly a palace. Huge rooms; ornate double staircase; Chinese tile roof; all reflect Chulalongkorn’s efforts to emulate European palaces. The palace is surrounded by a military base now. Good news; the grounds and exterior are carefully kept and groomed. Bad news, a mildly intimidating barrier to entry. The furniture and furnishings disapppeared during neglect by 20th century Thai royalty which gives the palace a barren, empty feel. Spend an hour and enjoy this really unusual structure.

Spectacular Wat in down town Phetchaburi. Definitely worth seeing. Phetchaburi is a great town to visit in Thailand to see something local and not too touristy.

Seen it from the road many times and decided - got to see it. The weather was a light drizzle. Hardly anyone here on a Sunday on a long weekend due to the weather. Staff very kind and helpful. Walk up if you want the exercise to take the cable car and relax. This was a royal residence and it is beautiful and very modest compared to flashy gigantesque places elsewhere. You should come here if; - you are in the region - like to see down to earth and not bling bling - like walking - you appreciate local customs and respect it (shoes off and no photos in certain areas, etc) You should not come here if you; - want neon and modern things - don’t like uneven somewhat slippery surfaces when wet
