What To Expect

The Grand Palace
The dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace is undoubtedly the most famous landmark in Bangkok. It’s one must-see sight that no visit to the city would be complete without. It was built in 1782 and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. The Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of the Thai people. Within its walls were also the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.

Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha)
Wat Phra Kaew (known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha or locally as Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram) is one of the most important Buddhist temples in Thailand. Located in the historic centre of Bangkok and within the grounds of the Grand Palace, the temple enshrines Phra Kaew Morakot (the Emerald Buddha), the highly revered Buddha image meticulously carved from a single block of jade.

Thoroughly enjoyed the grand architecture of the palace and its temple.

Our tour guide, Jin was very energetic and friendly. It was difficult not to feel excited about the tour given how she was throwing trivias and historical facts to us throughout the tour. The grand palace is very beautiful and it was amazing to be able to walk around such picturesque landscape. Absolute must when visiting Bangkok
A must in Bangkok with a great guide included

I highly suggest that you apply a sunscreen before the tour starts or have an umbrella or a hand fan. The place is very busy in the morning but our guide was able to move us away from the crowd when she explained everything about the palace first. After that, we were given some free time to go around the place and take pictures. Nok, our tour guide, gave us the option if we want to stay longer in the Emerald Buddha and just go on our own in the Grand Palace (you might need a bit more time in the Emerald Buddha to see all the structures). This is the tour where you need a guide to explain the area and structures and we really enjoyed this
Amazing morning with excellent guide

Picked up on time and there were only 6 of us in the group which made this more personal. The guide gave us incredible information about the palace and also the different types of buildings. We also saw the emerald Buddha inside the complex which was impressive.
