Day Trip - Bang Pa-In Palace, Bangkok: 38 reviews and 79 photos

  The only good thing about Bang Pa'in
by Snipernurse

I wish to bear no offense to any Thai's or other who may hold this place with esteem and proud, but I care about the vacations and travels of my fellow VT'ers so I must write this warning. Avoid Band Pain like the plague!!!! Bang Pain is a summer house for royalty, it is a collection of grassy grounds and old buildings decorated with old furniture, unless you're into this kind of thing a trip here will be incredibily painful and boring. The only thrill that I received in touring Bang Pain was driving around the Go Kart which are for rent on the grounds. Pictures are strictly forbidden in some of the buildings, and I even witnessed the authorities of the grounds confiscating a young mans camera because he had it out in the wrong spot, taking his camera and all of his pictures (he was at the end of his trip to Thailand too!) I fell into going to Bang Pain on a guided tour which included Ayutthaya and the whole tour was an absolute disaster and Bang Pain was a major factor in this. There are way to many other things to see then to waste your precious time in Thailand on this! DON'T GO!!!!!!!!!
