A very amazing place with plenty to catch your eye! The Buddhas and the buildings are pretty impressive! Be sure to take your camera, as you can get some postcard type shots!

Not to be missed, there is just so much to see here. We travelled by river bus to arrive which added to the experience.

Still a must-see in Bangkok despite the crowds. Tour route around the palace grounds hits all the important features and my guide was able to keep us moving. Several locations were frustrating because so many large groups seemed indifferent to their fellow tourists trying to get by or see the same thing. At least it was fun watching these oblivious...

On what may have been the hottest day I have ever experienced, we visited The Grand Palace in Bangkok - what a truly amazing place! Despite the heat, you must dress modestly. The view is gorgeous, the buildings are over the top in decoration and unlike anything I had ever seen. We spent most of our time looking at the... More

It was interesting to see the Grand Palace. It is a place where photo opportunities abound, as is most of Thailand.
