The Grand Palace Reviews
路線規劃的很好，走進門口有被驚艷到，建築物每一個小角落都十分精緻美麗，維護的十分好。絕對會再次拜訪的地方。 more »The road is very good, the entrance is to be, the building is very beautiful in every small corner, very good. places where you will worship again.
泰國大皇宮可以說是當地必到的景點之一。來參訪要注意開房時間，因為晚了就不能進，不能進就只能在門外拍拍照和到附近其他景點看看。 more »The Grand Emperor of Thailand can be said to be one of the must-see sites. Come to pay attention to the opening time, because it is too late, can not be taken outside to take pictures and to other nearby attractions to see.
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.
