Mrigadayavsn Palace - Palace on the Beach *updated 25-8-14*
I got a chance last weekend to visit the Mrigadayavsn Palace (often refered to as the “Palace on the Beach”). This palace is located in Cha-am, just north of Hua Hin on the southern Thai peninsula. This palace was built by King Vajiravudh in 1925. The palace is made up of 16 buildings in 3 groups, one of men, one for women and one for gatherings and assemblies. Most of the buildings are connected in long wooden covered corridors. The grounds have wonderful garden areas surrounding the palace area and outside the main palace area is also a protect mangrove forest.
At only 2 hours drive from Bangkok, this is a great day trip if you have the time. For a great set of Photos of the palace grounds click here...
