Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall Reviews & Ratings
Very nice experience to visit this place. The whole palace is made of marbles. It is a royal reception hall. You are not allowed to take photos inside the hall, but outside you can.
Must vist when in Bangkok beautifully crafted artifacts mostly made by Queen Sirikit Institute for ceremonial gifts to King and Queen. Not very ancient most of the artifacts created just 10 to 20 years ago. Great embroidery work. Was impressed with hand held audio tour device, all museums should have such devices. Ladies must wear long skirts or will have to buy ugly wraparound skirts provided at sight.
The most attractive Throne Hall in Thailand ever! Even more beautiful at night.
This building is fantastic. The architecture is beautiful with fresco paintings on the ceilings. The hall features gold thrones, silk embroidery, and intricate wood carving. Audio tours are available in 10 languages and are included with the entrance fee (150 baht or 'free' if you have a ticket from the Grand Palace). Remember to dress modestly. This means long skirts or dresses for ladies and no bare shoulders. It also means no shorts or bare shoulders for men. You must leave all of your belongings (except for your wallet) in a free locker. Follow the signs for individual entry. They will guide you to the lockers and then to the ticket booth and entrance. Yes, there are many tours here, but they move along quickly. If you wait for a minute or 2, you'll get a chance to see each exhibit. The main hall is breathtaking with the frescos and pieces dedicated to the king. The first floor contains galleries of traditional Thai art with videos to show how it's made. This is probably my favorite place in Bangkok so far. If you enjoy museums and art, I wouldn't miss it, but you'll have to plan your visit soon because the hall is closing for renovation on October 1, 2017 and I did not see a date posted for when they plan to finish.
The great western architecture in Thailand
