The illustrious and grand Bang, Pain Royal Palace is the summer residence of the Siamese royalty, located 60km north of Bangkok near Ayutthaya. This Summer Palace encircles a park with many iconic structures, that can be seen from your rented electric cart. While the property is owned by the royal family, Phra Thinang What Chamrun is the only building open for tourist visitation. It's a palace and throne room, built in the traditional Chinese-style, with grand ornamental tiles, elaborate ebony furnishings, gold, silver and porcelain intricate fretwork and a red lacquer interior. One of the highlights is a delicate, artistically carved camel bone dragon. Along side this is the tower used by royal parties as an observatory to view the heavens or surrounding countryside, called Ho Withun Thasana, or Sages Lookout. And finally we'll come to an archetypal Thai pavilion set in the middle of the ornamental pond called the Aisawan Thiphya, or the iconic Divine Seat of Personal Freedom, or 'floating' pavilion, known to have been the favorite afternoon spot for young Royals, and an inspiration to their epic poetry.
