Klai Kangwon Palace

Klai Kangwon Palace is the summer palace of Thai royal family. Located in Phetkasem Road in Hua Hin district, this summer palace was built by King Rama VII in 1926 and completed in 1933. The design of the building was inspired by the traditional Spanish architectural style. “Klai Kangwon” means “far from worries” in the Thai language, because the palace is located in a peaceful and picturesque area facing Hua Hin beach.

Moreover, in the palace area, there is a pavilion named  “Ratcha Pracha Samakhom Pavilion” which means “the King and the people care for each other” the multi-propose building was mainly used for royal family activities such as King’s birthday.
