There are attractions that were built with tourists in mind, and there is an attraction that was designed with Thai kings in mind. Given a choice, which would you visit? Of course, an attraction that was used by Thai kings is interesting to say the least. This makes the Bang Pa-In Royal Palace one of the most popular attractions in Thailand.
This is actually a whole complex along the Chao Phraya River and was made by King Prasat Thong back in 1632. Another king, King Mongkut, made renovations during the middle of the 19th century. On the other hand, King Chulalongkorn added more buildings to the complex from 1872 to 1889. So as you can see, the complex was made, renovated, and improved with the ingenuity, creativity and demand for quality of kings.
The complex is one of the best maintained attractions in the world since King Bhumibol Adulyadej still use it for special occasions with his family. But on days when they’re not using it, it’s open to visitors. So make sure to visit and enjoy your day like a king.
