Grand Palace, Bangkok Reviews
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.
Beautiful palace and intricate architecture depicting Buddhism and Hinduism. Beware of cheats who will try to trick you saying the temple is closed till noon and would want to take you around to other places. The dress code is very strict as it consists of several structures and The Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Hence, dress appropriately covering shoulders and legs as well. It's always better to hire a guide who would take you around quickly and explain about the place which would save your time. Don't forget to try the juicy fruits like Pineapple and Mango Stein that are sold outside the palace. Really tasty and worth relishing.
Awesome place to visit. Definitely a must see the first time you visit Bangkok. We were told that due to it being some sort of holiday the Grand Palace would be free. However on arrival we discovered you had to pay. It was pretty busy so we were suspicious and believed that this was a ploy to get them in the door. Anyway it was definitely worth the money. Be prepared for large crowds especially on holidays. Be prepared to spend a few hours roaming the grounds!
Plan to spend at least a couple of hours. It's a big place with two main parts, Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the royal residence. The King does not live there anymore. The palace is used for hosting royal ceremonies. It is beautiful and must see attraction. Can get very crowded, so go early and avoid weekends.
Architecturally gorgeous with so many intricate designs and paintings throughout the entire place. Totally worth seeing, particularly if you haven't been to other temples in Thailand. Be aware there's a strict dress code to get in and if you're a lady then it's going to be confusingly strict for you. Some women were turned away while others wearing the exact same thing were allowed in. Chinese tour bus groups is why I have to go for 3 stars. Be prepared to throw some elbows, get pushed and shoved, have an impossible time taking any pictures due to a complete lack of awareness or respect and of course hear tons of shouting across the palace in an area that's supposed to be semi peaceful and quiet. Good luck everybody.
