The walls and moat set the scene for an intriguing experience. Pretty cool place, easy to walk around and explore the rooms and grounds. Didn't require a lot of time to see the main buildings and I got a real insight into what the palace...More

You get a taxi to get there, unless you want to walk 1,25 km only inside the palace, under hot temperature. It shows you how was the nobles life a those time! Do not forget to climb the Drum Tower inside the palace! 110 steps...More

This Royal Palace stands out in the way it has been rebuilt and preserved. It is a lovely walk around the buildings and fascinating to see how the royal family lived. It is well worth climbing the watch tower as this gives one a good...More
