This house offers a good view of the Doi Tung Mountains. There is fee for this house but it is guaranteed that the view of the house inside is suitable with the cost.

It costs 90 baht to visit in the gardens. We didn’t get inside the palace.( bad timing) but the gardens are beautiful sand very clean. Outside is eateries and toilets. Worth a visit alone and can combine with the palace
