Palace

Phayathai Palace is a marvelous early 20th century Royal Residence in the heart of Bangkok. As it stands a bit out of sight, it is not much known and seldom visited, especially by foreign tourists. Phayathai Palace, also known as Phaya Thai, Phyathai, or Phya Thai is located close to Victory Monument in downtown Bangkok.  The Palace was built by King Chulalongkorn the Great (Rama V) in 1910 along the banks of Samsen canal, an area that still had a lot of farmland back then.
