A stunning piece of architecture, the Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-Am is a Thai-Victorian style summer seaside palace which was constructed in the early 1920s, during the reign of King Rama VI. Situated between Cha-Am and Hua Hin, the palace was designed by an Italian architect and was built with golden teak.

Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-am, Hua Hin Reviews
Nice history palace right on the beach surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers. Be careful, it's closed on Wednesday. You will feel like coming back to the past visiting the different rooms with all the small details. You can also enjoy a coffee or a meal at the palace entrance. Don't forget to slow down and open your window when you drive through the camp main entrance. (To show respect)
This is one of the many beautiful palaces of The King of Thailand! Rest and beauty, respect are the words to use here. You can site on a white bench surrounded by beautiful nature. learn about the history of the Royal family of Thailand. If you are lucky as I was a there is a band playing traditional Thai music, what makes this experience even more enjoyable and makes the picture complete. At the end there is a giftshop where you can buy some special Thai Items. And a shop with beverages and ice cream. Please dress respectfully no swim shorts or short pants for woman don't wear caps or anything with flowers on your head a Pony tale or putting your hair up is preferred, if you forgot about it, no worry they rent out scarves to make you look more proper.
This is a beautiful palace next to the sea and most importantly the ticket is not expensive at all which only cost you 30 baht. I have visited here at least 3 times, but the experiences have been dropped because of renovation. The first time I came here, you are still allowed to go to the second floor to visit some royal rooms but it has been closed since sometime last year. The staff told us it may take 5 years or more for the renovation works. I wish it could be faster but I guess it won't :(
COULD BE INTERESTING, but the second floor is closed under renovation. The roads are in some bad condition, exceptional trees, very beautiful. Don't forget to wear long or short pants under knee or u have to borrow the long skirt they have and believe me this is a really hot place.
Good place to see how the beach residences of the kings used to lived.. I would recommend coming few years after as they are currently in the restoration process and all rooms are off limits to everyone... entry is 30 baht and you must be properly dressed in order to get in... Google map will route you to drive through and infantry camp and that’s wrong.. there is another entrance down the road..
