  • Sumptuous place by beautifully decorated temples and vast area occupying in Bangkok. The guard is very demanding how much clothing and near the entrance gate has shops for emergency purchases of blouse with sleeves and long pants, worth any piece to make the visit. Spent over 2 hours on this ride

  • A bit of a tourist trap. 500 baht entry for both grand palace and temple. Dress code is very strict - no sarongs for men and women cannot wear wraps over there shoulders (must be another shirt or cardigan). Guards weren't too friendly and very hot in the grounds. Spent 1 hour looking at both the temple, palace and museum dedicated to his majesty. A guide or signs with information would have been valuable, otherwise not much you can learn on your own. We got there at 8.45 and it was already getting busy - recommend getting in as early as possible. Gates open at 8.30.
  • The palace is so beautiful. it’s open 930-330pm and costs 500BHT to get in. Lots to see and appreciate in the fine buildings. You can spend a few hours walking around the complex. Just remember to dress appropriately otherwise you wont get in. No open shoulders and no shorts -even men Close to other attractions which you can do all in one day. This is very busy place in the Bangkok. Beautiful architecture of Thai culture. There are many shopping sites nearby this Palace. This is grand place, but a bit crowded!!
