Phaya Thai Royal Palace, Lunch and Tour
Construction of Phya Thai Palace began in Protected content . It was built at Rama V's behest so that he might stay there and look out over the farms, plantations, and livestock in the area. The palace grounds included those areas directly opposite the palace. He also had a complex included in the compound where the Royal Ploughing Ceremony might take place, since used on many occasions.
Since then it has had a varied history. King Rama VII ordered the palace be converted into an international hotel, an enterprise which ended five years later. The palace then became the site of the first Thai radio broadcast station. Later the palace became a clinic for the Royal Thai Army. Over this time the palace still retained its magnificent interior design. The Roman Garden, at the rear of the palace, is a sight to see.
