Beautiful grounds. Incredible temple and very interesting place. Getting there by River Taxi is a blast !! Go by the orange boats from the main river taxi spot at the end of the sky train. Once you get on board they will come around and collect your fare.

Get to the palace early, as school children and throngs of people will arrive and choke it up a bit. We got there around 9:00 am and bythe time we left there were lines of people.

Address: Maharaj Pier, Chao Phraya, Bangkok
Directions: The combined compound is open 8.30am to 3.30pm everyday. Cost is 200B (if you are Thai, it's free), and includes admission to Vimanmek Mansion and Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall, both in the Dusit area.
