Beautiful paintings and statues. You get a real sense of the history of Bangkok and Buddhism from being here.

It is simply a must if in Thailand. You will most likely see hundreds on temples while on your travels in Thailand but you have to go and see the grand Palace.

There is so much to see and is quite beautiful and the detail on the buildings is impressive. Some beautiful pics to take. We went on the free guided English tour and that was really worthwhile and the guide was very entertaining and spoke English well.

Not one for palaces but this Palace is a must visit for all. Allow yourself a full day as there is so much to see. Every corner has something unique and to watch the changing of the Royal Guards is something else

Don't be in a hurry and take your time. There is much to see. Not just a palace, but a series of buildings, royal residences and temples. This was my first time in a Buddhist country and the architecture blow my socks off. From the roof to the door to the floor, the decoration is stunning. Not all buildings are... More

If you are in Bangkok you have to visit the Grand Palace. There is a group of Temples and the King's former residence. Make sure you dress appropriately. Be careful to avoid the various TUKtuk scams and people befriending you for the wrong reasons. Take a good camera although you will be unable to use it inside the temples. It... More

It really is the most beautiful palace in the world. The entire Ramayana (the Thai version) is painted on the interior walls of the palace. It really is "awesome".
