Vimanmek Mansion

Zone: Dusit, 3.5kms North west of Siam

The world's largest teakwood building

Through the well manicured grounds of Dusit Garden, Vimanmek Mansion emerges like an imaginative castle from a fantasy novel.

Once the royal residence of King Rama V, and like its name suggests (Vimanmek means castle in the clouds), this palace is an architectural marvel – the entire structure is fashioned entirely from gold teak-wood without using a single nail.

The interiors resemble a living museum, where you can walk through (under strict guidance) some of the rooms and marvel at a treasure trove of rare arts and furniture pieces from early Rattanakosin Period – all belonging to the late king.

Tour duration: Min 2 hrs but you could easily spend the day in the area to visit the other attractions in the immediate area

Opening Hours: 08:30 until 16:30 (Tuesday - Saturday, last ticket at 15:30)
Location: Rajavithee Road. Close to Dusit Zoo and the Dusit Palace complex.
Admission fee: 100 baht, which entitles you to enter every building and gallery.

Note: you'll need to show your ticket to the attendant at the entrance to every building.
  • No shorts/sleeveless shirts and skirts must be at least knee-length or you won't be allowed in.
  • No Photography inside (lockers provided), No shoes inside (many buildings so wear easy footwear)
