"Grand Palace" Grand Palace Tip by oakleys

Grand Palace, Bangkok: 313 reviews and 618 photos

i was told if i were to come to bangkok and had to choose just one temple to see, this was the main temple i had to see.
Without a doubt, the biggest and nicest temple i have ever seen. If u only have time to visit one temple in bkk, i would say this is the temple u should go to then. Alot of tourists in there anytime of the year i heard. So get ur film ready, because there's gonna be alot of picture taking outside the temples.
Beware though... no video-cams or cameras inside the temples where u're suppose to take off ur shoes.
And remember not to wear any TANK TOPS, OPEN SANDALS OR SHORTS, or else u'll be borrowing their shirts/pants.
I actually had to borrow a red shirt, thank god it looked half descent since it wont look too bad for the pics.
One last thing..bring ur own bottle of water..i'm not sure if there is water to buy in there.
Alright everyone...enjoy!!!
