Unfortunately closed completly - no entance to the whole areal allowed! We planed a whole day trip especially to this attraction - but we went there to stand infront of the high walls...
I wish I could even endorse this one pitiful star. Negative five stars would be more fitting. We planned an entire day trip around these grounds. The ENTIRE AREA IS CLOSED and fenced off with massive walls so that nothing is even visible. Atrociously disappointing. Good luck.
It was one of the best places to visit in Bangkok when it was opened to the public.
As of July 31 2018 Vimanmek Mansion is closed; wish I had read TA before going. Also Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is closed I don’t know how long for as I don’t speak Thai and the security guard doesn’t speak English but judging by the fence around the property my guess is that it will be closed for a while to come...
We arrived on Sunday morning around 11:30 but realized it was closed including old congress building since last year. Cannot find this info at hotel or website even Google map didn’t reflect close status. What an April fool joke!
