Klai Kangwon Palace was built in 1926, during the King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) ruling. The land where the palace is, belonged to King wife, Queen Rambai Barni.
The architecture of the palace is common for that period. The influence of the Victorian style is literally visible.
Firstly, the name of the palace was Suan Klai Kandwon. Then the King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) decided to rename it as Phra Ratchawang Klai Kangwon. Now the Palace has a name Wang Klai Kangwon, what means ‘far from worries’.
One of the quintessential landmarks of Hua Hin, it was the favorite summer residence of the previous King (Rama XI). He used it for different occasions.
On a palace territory lots of walkways with different trees and flowers. One of the alleys goes directly to the sea. There are a garden and a pond.
While the Palace is occupied with the Royal family it is not allowed for visiting.
