Vimanmek Palace was originally built as a summer residence for the Thai Royal Family; however, it was rebuilt in 1901 by King Rama V and is the largest mansion made of golden teak in the world.

It has 81 rooms and is surrounded by the luxurious Dusit gardens. Behind the walls of the palace are some remarkable treasures such as the oldest typewriter in the world with Thai characters, as well as the very first indoor bathroom in Thailand, furniture, porcelain, photographs and royal carriages.
