We got there about half 10 and there was a queue but it got shorter quickly. Once in, payed 500 baht per person which was alright. A little steep compared with the 100 baht for Wat Pho (and you got water with that ticket). Hoards...More

The Grand Palace is very large and very crowded. Go early so you can walk around to try to avoid some of the craziness. Worth the trip anytime though.

Thai royalty did know how to build grandiose palaces. It is a very huge complex and you cannot go in all of the buildings. We couldn't find a way to get into any of the buildings and were exhausted from seeing the Emerald Buddha temple....More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

You will be able to take photos of the Grand Palace but when going inside where the Emerald Buddha is, no photos allowed there. You can go Wat Pho for a fee and take photos of the Reclining Buddha, well worth the visit.
