Palace, where no one lives

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

If ANYBODY knows the history of this opulent palace, please let me know.

It is very out of place in Thailand or Chiang Mai, or anywhere for that matter!!

Some parts of the estate were unlocked, so I could see even some furniture. The place looked abandoned for at least a year, the estethics were bit gaudy for my taste, but definitely over the top to attract attention.


I think this was a venture which went wrong. Many times if foreigners invest money in Thailand, they have to do it through a trusted Thai friend or girlfriend. Sometimes it turns out, the friendship was not to strong after all.... and the investment is lost!

It ocuppies relatively large area with several buildings, in quiet corner of Old city of Chiang Mai.
