Having been fortunate enough to have visited The Royal Palace in Bangkok, I was somewhat disappointed. Rather small. Worth a quick visit and some photos but nothing to write home about.

The grounds are stunning & the architecture is classic Khmer. A guide is a must in order to be able appreciate the scope of what you are seeing. Keep in mind this is a Royal residence in which his majesty still resides. As a result some areas are off limits to walk thru.

The Royal Palace is a big area with a few 'temples' and stupa's. You can make some great photo's of the architecture.

We took a guide which was hugely beneficial. The gardens, temples and buildings are beautiful using the guide we got a clear picture of who, what why when etc. It is difficult to believe but people were there without either guide or tour book. Our tour took just over an hour we learnt many things about the present King the... More

well worth the money to pay for a tour guide. but feel free to give yourself time to walk through after they are done with the tour as well and don't be shy about asking questions to get the full value

I recommend to visit this place, you can take some good photos. But it's a bit light on the information, you have to hire a guide for $10 or research wikipedia to get the info. A lot of the palace is off limits as it's the residence of the royal family.

For the fee charged, there were no guides, no visible signs, people are expected to wander around like sheep? The stunning architecture and beautiful palace needs more guides and more personnel to make the visit a memorable one
