We visited this place as it was on the same way you follow to reach the Grand Palace. The park is open till 10 pm. The crematorium is astonishing! Beautiful details everywhere. You need to wear "modest" outfits (covering your knees and avoiding tight clothes)...More

The Royal Crematorium and exhibition of the late King of Thailand, King Bumibol Adulyeduj, is worth a visit. There is so much to see, entry is free and crowds thin out in the evening. Visitors must show their ID's and proper attire is required.
