"Largest teak mansion in the world" Vimanmek Mansion Tip by trisanna
Vimanmek Mansion, Bangkok: 31 reviews and 42 photos
This largest teak mansion is built supposedly without the support of nails. The 81 room mansion (really a palace) was built for Rama V or Chulalongkorn to house his wife, children and concubines. The victorian building is located in Dusit Park-which seems so far away from the bustle of Bangkok. In the afternoon, they have some thai dance here. The mansion was opened to the public in 1981 by the order of Queen Sirikit. The building did sustain some bomb damage during WWII there is some evidence of this on the tour.
Admission to this attraction is included in your ticket to Wat Phra Kaew. You don't have to use the ticket the same day as you bought it. It's good for a few days.
