As some visitors have said before beware of a big scam which is going on around the Grand Palace. When foreigners leave their taxi some guys lead you to a small gate to get your tickets, at the gate you are told by another guy the Palace is closed for foreigners because the Queen is praying inside and will take at least two hours to get in, The guy looked quite official, there was even a soldier standing next to him, listening to all that scam talk without doing anything against it. There are lots of tuk tuk/taxi drivers who are after business hoping to catch tourists who don't want to wait and bring them to other temples for an extraordinary fare. Ignore them all and go through the main gate for buying your tickets. The Grand Palace is an unforgettable experience, eventhough it is extremely busy the rich scuptures and fasades of the temples and palaces will be overwhelming for your eyes, Absolutely a must see.
