“Wow.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The Grand Place was an amazing place to visit in Bangkok, the temples and buildings housed within the walls were magnificent. One major tip, do not listen to anyone outside of the place walls! We were approached 3 times by people telling us it was either closed or that it was student day and we should come back later. Some even had uniforms on and were very convincing until we heard the tannoy announcement from the palace saying to ignore anyone trying to delay your visit. Fortunately we did not fall for the scams.
