"The Grand Palace" Grand Palace Tip by amouramour

Grand Palace, Bangkok: 313 reviews and 618 photos

 
 

The Grand Palace complex was established in 1782 and it houses not only the royal residence and throne halls,but also a number of government offices as well as the renowned Temple of Emerald Buddha.It covers an area of 218,000 square metres and is surrounded by four walls,1900 metres in length.

If you would like to visit the palace you should be dressed properply.The women must wear shirts long enough to cover their shoulders and skirts or trousers under their knees..And men must likewise wear shirts and proper trousers..Otherwise they borrow you shirts and trousers or skirts but it's really disgusting because those clothes are worn by maybe 3-4 people during the day!

Entrance fee is 250 bahts.One euro was about 49 bahts in my last visit..

Address: Maharaj Pier, Chao Phraya, Bangkok
