The most important tourist attraction in Bangkok, the grand palace is majestic. It has multiple different buildings each with unique architecture, carvings and paintings. Sadly tourists can't enter most of the buildings. It is advisable to go early as later it starts getting more crowded. The palace opens at 8.00 am so it's better to go early. The entry fee is 500 bht, which includes ticket to a theater play. It's like a Thai culture musical. Pick-up and drop to theater from grand palace is also included. The Emerald Buddha temple is inside the grand Palace.
I would skip this place and go to the Reclining Buddha instead. This place is crowded (similar to most European free attractions) and even if it was not, I would not pay 500 baht to enter, more like 250. The Grand Palace area was under construction so you can only see it from one side which is the side the sun is shining from unfortunately. No photos can be taken in the Emerald Buddha Temple which is where most tourist only see. No one hangs around for the Grand Palace so if you want to see that, make sure to not blindly follow the group of tourist heading for the exits.
