DUSIT BANGKOK TRAVEL GUIDE
Dusit Bangkok Travel Guide
Lying to the north of old royal Bangkok, the spacious, tree-lined avenues of the Dusit area present a striking contrast, and give the area an almost European feel.
It was first groomed as the city's new royal quarter at the turn of the 20th century by King Rama V, a monarch renowned for his progressive policies and interest in the West.
Although the present royal residence, Chitralada Palace, is located in Dusit, its extensive grounds effectively hide it from public gaze.
