You will not be disapointed and you need to allow a day to see it all but remember to be careful you don't go out as there is not re entry.

The Grand Palace is beautiful, but also completely packed. After seeing many temples and Wats around Thailand and Cambodia, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and other palace buildings did not stand out as much as I'd expected. In the heat, having so many people around made it difficult to enjoy the surroundings. Also (this is my own fault for not checking), the oldest temples in the complex are closed Sat-Sun and I wasn't able to go in.

Wear full length, baggy pants (not tights or leggings, ladies, and men need full-length pants) and covered shoulders. They are very strict about dress code, and the line to borrow clothing can take 30+ minutes. Definitely go in the morning before it gets too hot. The textile museum is air conditioned, as are some of the exhibits, so take advantage if it gets too hot.

The Grand Palace is a great combination between traditional Thai architecture and Thai history (paintings on the walls for instance).

If you want to know well about the place, you may need a guide.

Be aware:
- Dress code => it's forbidden to wear clothes that show shoulder and shorter than the knees (such as mini-short, mini-skirt). It is also written that thong/sandal are not allowed but it's ok
- Fee entry is 200 baht

Hope it helps

it was about the palace.. not the air.. it was really hot in there.. but the palace is a must visit place :)
there so much to see for 500Baht (yeah it's pretty expensive)
i recommend you not to go too early in the morning (it open at 08.30 am) coz it will be reaaalllyyy crowded there.. the tour groups usually arrange the palace visit in the morning and in the afternoon.. so go there around 10 or 11..
