Truly a grand experience when inside. You'll be in awe whether you are an architecture fanatic or not. The amount of details in each wall and pillar is nothing short of amazing. Entrance costs 500 Baht. Definitely worth the stop when in Bangkok. Also, never believe anyone who approaches you and says that it's closed due to some holiday. Make sure to wear appropriate clothing when planning to go here or any other temple.
Must visit place if you are visiting Bangkok... You can use the river road.... Don't forget to wear full pant. Because they don't allow anyone with two quarter or three quarter pants. So you will have to buy over prized trousers to get in.
An artistic and religious extravaganza. History, religion, art and story telling mixed together in one of the most iconic landmarks in Bangkok. A lot of grand structures, detailed art in the walls of buildings and a religious figure everywhere. A true reflection of the kingdom and Buddhism as it grew in this country. A must visit :)
Not the cheapest of places to visit in Bangkok but well worth it. The art work surrounding the walls tells a brilliant ancient Thai story. There's a free leaflet on entry in a wide variety of languages. The dress code is strictly enforced so make sure your shoulders and legs are covered otherwise you'll be buying something to cover them!
Grand Palace has always been a must visit in Bangkok, it's worth for a visit but the entry ticket is really expensive. You can have a lot nice photos with the buildings inside and it's better to rent an audio guide so you know what you are looking at. We arrived there around 10:00 am, a lot of people there already. Be careful some people trying to tell you it's not open. There are also water stations that you can fill up water with your own water bottle. We used GRAB to get a taxi, didn't wait for too long.
