Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-am, Hua Hin Reviews
Nice place for a short stop off. The palace and grounds are nice to walk around in and enjoy. Not much information available in English. All of the interior was closed for renovations when we went but apparently that's nice too and would have made the visit a bit more substantial. There's also a cafe which we didn't have time to check out but looked like it might have been good. They make you borrow a 'long gee' skirt thing (for guys and girls) to cover your legs which is a bit annoying as it doesn't stay on very well.
It was a wonderful place for sight seeing and relaxation for only 30baht. wonderful view for pictures too. and have a delicious delicacies and ice cream at the end of the trail. If you visit HuaHin, stop over to this place. they sell t-shirts and souviner outside the palace.
The area is beautiful, quiet and calm. The walkway is clearly guided. The great thing is they provide shawl, sarong if tourists (wear inappropriate clothes to the place (i.e. short pants, sleeveless shirt) for free. The place is under construction for year so we were unable to walk on the second floor of all buildings. Will come back again.
A nice place to walk and relax and imagining what it was like more than a hundred years ago when the King built this summer palace. It would be nice if there was a cafe or restaurant, so visitors can relax within the palace grounds. But I'm sure that would not be possible, as this is a historical site anyway.
The palace is a nice place to stroll through if it is not close for renovation. Reminder to all tourist to wear appropriately to the palace. No sleeveless and bottoms above knee. Cos u 20baht each to rent an attire to go into the palace.
