Hua Hin, the capital of the Hua Hin district of Thailand, is a popular resort beach destination. The town is a hit amongst tourists and travelers, as Hua Hin is home to a number of exciting and fascinating attractions such as the Hua Hin Beach, Wat Huay Mongkol, the Spirit Houses on Brassier Beach, and the Butterfly Garden. Hua Hin is also great for water sports, and also hosts many cultural and sporting festivals. One of the most recommendable hotels in Hua Hin Thailand is Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa.
There are few landmarks in Hua Hin which are as iconic and popular as the Klai Kangwon Palace. The Klai Kangwon Palace is one of the many palaces used by the Thai Royal Family. The palace is known to be the summer residence of the present monarch of Thailand; King Bhumibhol Aduljadej (Rama IX), and his family. This beautiful palace defines the landscape of Hua Hin, and thus is well worth a visit by those traveling to Hua Hin.
Located on Phet Kasem Road, Hua Hin, the Klai Kangwon Palace is built in 1923. ‘Klai Kangwon’ literally translates to ‘away from worries’, and the palace is aptly named as it is one of the most serene and beautiful locations in the region. When it is not occupied by the Royal family, the palace is open to the public daily from 8.00am to 4.00pm, during which visitors can explore most parts of this stunning palace. Within the palace complex you will witness the beautiful palace structure, boasting a unique fusion of Spanish and traditional Thai architecture. The palace grounds contain many beautiful gardens and perfectly maintained lawns. There is also a remarkable Roman garden, an olden sundial, and a peaceful walkway flanked with luscious trees leading to a pristine beachfront. It is not every day that you get to walk into the residence of a monarch of a nation, so if the palace is open to the public you should pay it a visit.
