The Summer Palace, still used by the royal family, includes a variety of architectural styles. This observatory was built for Rama IV, who adored astronomy. The Chinese house can be seen in the distance. The Thai, always accepting and pragmatic when it comes to foreigners, were the only people in Southeast Asia to avoid colonial rule.
