While most buildings now serve as government offices, two attractions are open to the public. Phra Tamnak Chali Mongkhon At, a Western-style structure housing a statue of Ya-Le (the king’s beloved pet dog), and Phra Tamnak Mari Ratchabanlang, where personal utensils, royal photographs, and writings of King Rama VI are exhibited. Adjacent to these is Tamnak Thap Khwan, a Thai-style residence that once served as the king’s temporary abode.

Concluding the tour is a visit to Sampran Riverside, formerly known as Rose Garden, where the Thai Village and Cultural Show await. This idyllic setting provides the perfect backdrop to showcase Thai traditions and ways of life. Take a leisurely stroll through the Botanical Gardens, marveling at the diverse tropical flora and fauna.
