Grand Palace, Bangkok: 313 reviews and 618 photos


The Forbidden city (in Italian 'La Cittą Proibita', I simply translated this, sorry for mistakes) is the greatest attraction in Bangkok. It is not only a huge area full of monuments and temples but also the living heart of the bangkok's inhabitants religion.

Monks are everywhere, and you can approach them to talk (not too much) or take a photo
