Not far from the capital city of Bangkok in an area known as Suan Chitlada stands the Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall whose immediate neighbours are the Vimanmek Mansion, Dusit Palace, The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall and the King Rama V Monument. It is believed that the Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall was built by King Rama V during the wee years of the twentieth century and many of the relics at this museum are considered to be from his time.
The museum and these other epic sites of Thailand are a short distance away from the areas where you are likely to find a service apartment in Bangkok, but with the local tuk-tuk service getting about is not difficult. The usual congestion in Bangkok might require that you have ample time for this activity as the museum closes at 04.00 pm on most days. If you choose to travel on a Wednesday, check with the staff at Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok serviced suites or your chosen accommodation as the time of closure may differ.
The Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall itself boasts a quaint architecture and along with its treasured possessions, the locals consider it a sort of a place of worship. Thus, it is necessary to be appropriately clad, footwear is to be removed, capturing photo moments is prohibited and carrying your mobile phone into the premises is also disallowed. Instead, all your valuables need to be placed in a safe and an entry fee is levied.
The gardens are beautiful and large and the interior is really a trove of fortunes for those who appreciate arts and crafts. Ancient Thai textiles, purses, carvings, ceramics, bamboo based items, pictures, woven baskets, and silks are on display in cabinets. The locals are proud of these handcrafted items and the visitors find the interior architecture and design as enthralling as the artifacts on display.
