Visit one of the world's largest teakwood structures at Vimanmek Mansion, an early 20th-century complex known for its lush gardens.

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.

  • Still closed. Whole area inaccessible due to metal fence work and construction site. Basically a massive police controlled compound.  more »
  • The vimanmeck mansion palace is permanently closed and not visible..., too bad. We drove around the whole area of the dusit to see only super-controlled military palaces that could not be visited... And it's a good thing it should be one of the least touristy things you can do in Bangkok.

  • Unfortunately closed completly - no entance to the whole areal allowed! We planed a whole day trip especially to this attraction - but we went there to stand infront of the high walls...
  • I wish I could even endorse this one pitiful star. Negative five stars would be more fitting. We planned an entire day trip around these grounds. The ENTIRE AREA IS CLOSED and fenced off with massive walls so that nothing is even visible. Atrociously disappointing. Good luck.
