Grand Palace, Bangkok Reviews

  • The architecture is amazing. I love the details and work they put into making it so grand. Can't really enter the palace and temple buildings but can see from outside (except to see the emerald Buddha but can't take photo inside). Lots of other tourists around, especially Chinese tour groups. Make sure shoulders and legs are fully covered to get in, otherwise, they'll make you buy clothes to cover.

  • The entrance fee of 500baht is a surprise but this place is a must see when in Bangkok. You must be fully dressed, no shorts or exposed shoulders, to able to enter. The palace architecture is amazing and you also can visit the green jade Buddha temple. Bring water and a hat because it is hot. The surrounding area is full of temples to walk to so plan a few hours in the area. Metro is close and so are food stands and convenience stores. Enjoy!

  • Honestly, there were just way too many people. To the point where it made the whole time there uncomfortable. And having travelled around a lot of SEA, it also wasn't much different to what I've seen before. Don't get me wrong, it is a huge, amazing palace. Just very similar to my previous experiences. Guess it is a must do while in Bangkok though. REMEMBER to wear long pants. They will make you buy a pair outside the palace gates if you don't have them.

  • Awe inspiring in architectural grandeur and scale of construction. Intricately inlaid with extensive work which is truly reflective of Thai traditions - an amalgam of northern Thai, North-eastern Khmer and Southern influences, all harmoniously tied together neatly, making for a stunning visual treat!!! It would help to have a tour guide to explain a lot of nuances though. The strict dress code caught a lot of visitors unawares, but there are "helpful" shops right outside, which provide the necessary appropriate gear - for a price 😉 Even a full day isn't enough to catch all the sights, so plan your trip accordingly. The crowd & access control sucks big time, hence prepare to wait/walk endlessly to reach the palace!!! It can get rather tiring for kids.

  • The Grand Palace in Bangkok is beautiful. It is a bit pricey to get in, but it didn't seem that any of the many tourists had any problems paying the fee. The grounds are maintained beautifully and the detail is astounding. There are a lot of taxis and stalls in front that try to trick tourists into over-paying for things, so just be careful of that.
