The Phya Thai Palace (Thai: วังพญาไท Wang Phaya Thai) or Royal Phya Thai Palace (พระราชวังพญาไท Phra Ratcha Wang Phaya Thai) is on the banks of the Samsen Canal (คลองสามเสน Khlong Sam Sen) on Rajavithee Road (ถนนราชวิถี Thanon Ratchawithi) in the Ratchathewi District of Bangkok. King Rama V bestowed on it the royal name of the Royal Residence of the Phya Thai (พระตำหนักพญาไท Phra Tamnak Phaya Thai) or the Phya Thai Palace, with Phya Thai (พญาไท Phaya Thai) meaning "lord of the Thais", during his reign and so it was built with this bearing on design.To visit Phya Thai Palace on your trip to Bangkok, use our Bangkok trip planner.

Excellent visit. Great sight see... go with tour (twice a day) she will show u till every little detail. Alone u will not be allowed to go up in all the rooms. This palace belong to royal family Thailand back untill rama 5 stayed here. You will get an amazing view into their life and being. Through the many years Thailand had to stay strong to keep their beautiful country safe and strong. My blessing go out to rama 10 and the queen. 🎷📯💗 entrance is free be sure to donate if you can!
