Dusit Garden, or simply "Dusit", is a complex of palaces and royal residences in the south of the Dusit district.
The palace was established by King Rama V, the first Thai monarch to visit Europe. He was impressed by the Royal parks and residences he had seen there, which were leafy, relaxed, spacious and cool, as opposed to the Grand Palace, which was cramped with buildings for his numerous wives, children and servants.
These buildings blocked the air flow inside the Grand Palace, which turned the heat up remarkably. As a substitute, King Rama V started building the Dusit Palace. Use a Grand Palace tour ticket to visit Vimanmek Palace.
