Rajabhakti Park was opened in September 2015 and is well known all over Thailand as the park that has giant bronze statues of seven Thai kings. The average height of the statues is 13.9 meters. It’s only when you walk up to them that you get a real sense of the size of the statues.

The seven statues are:

  • King Ram Khamhaeng (reigned from 1279 to 1298) of the Sukhothai period
  • King Naresuan (1590-1605) of the Ayutthaya period

As the royal family is revered in Thailand it’s a popular place that Thai people like to visit. It also has non-Thai visitors, but most that we saw on our visit from other Asians from neighboring countries.

When you first arrive at the park you will need to show your ID and you’ll then be directed to the car park. From the car park, it’s just a short walk to the main buildings where you’ll need to wait for the shuttle bus to take you to the statues.

The shuttle bus stops at a covered area near the statues and there you’ll see some information about the kings. Unfortunately, the information is only in Thai. There is also an area that shows a video about the statues but that section was closed when we visited.

From there you are free to walk up to the statues and take as long or as little as you want taking photos. We visited in the afternoon when the sun was moving behind the statues, so to get the best photos I’d suggesting visiting in the morning. After you’ve finished you’ll need to wait a few minutes to get the shuttle bus back to the car park.

When visiting the statues you aren’t allowed to wear shorts, but long trousers are available to borrow. Just drop them off when you’ve finished.

While there isn’t much to do at the park apart from seeing the statues I still think it’s worth a visit, as it will help you understand Thai culture a little.

Rajabhakti Park Details

Address: 8 Phetkasem Road, Hua Hin

Opening Hours: 08:00-18:00 every day

How To Get There: If you have a car or motorbike it’s very easy to get to. Just head south down Phetkasem Road (the main road through Hua Hin) and you’ll see signs for the park. If you don’t have your own transport you can easily get a taxi or tuk-tuk from town. Note that if driving Google Maps shows an incorrect route that’s many miles longer than the actual route. If you select the walking route that will also be the way to go by car or bike.
