This fascinating structure, 83 years old and strong, was the brainchild of King Rama VII, designed as his residence and then gifted to Queen Rambai Barni. Located in the serene coastal town of Hua Hin, Thailand, the Klai Kangwon Palace stands as a testament to the country’s rich history and architectural grandeur.
This regal structure draws influence from a mix of Thai and Spanish influences. Set against the backdrop of lush gardens and facing the Gulf of Thailand, the palace’s design is not only aesthetically pleasing but also a symbol of cultural amalgamation.
Klai Kangwon Palace comprises four residential palaces – Piam Suk, Puk Kasem, Eb Prem, and Empree. Piam Suk is a Spanish-style building which was the official residence of King Rama VII and Queen Rambai Barni and is the most prominent of the compound.
Tranquil Seaside Location
The idyllic coastal location of the palace adds to its inherent beauty, with dazzling views for visitors to gaze at. The palace is also in the vicinity of a beachside hotel in Hua Hin such as properties like Avani+ Hua Hin Resort, making it a quick and easy trip to make that has an immersive experience added to it.
