The most famous and gorgeous temple in Thailand. The Emerald Buddha is considered the most sacred statue in Thailand. In 1782, King Rama I succeeded to the throne and decided to move the capital from Ayutthaya to Bangkok. This means the end of the Ayutthaya period but the beginning of the Rattanakosin period (Bangkok). Wat Phra Kaew was built since then on the ground of the Grand Palace. The main entrance for tourists is Viseschaisri Gate only, which is on Na Phra Lan Road. The ticket costs 500 baht for a foreigner (Thai is free) A strict dress code applies. If you wear the prohibited clothes, you have to buy a new one that available at the main entrance gate (T-Shirt costs about 200 baht, for example)…

In common with many tourist attractions in Thailand, The Grand Palace operates a discriminatory Dual Pricing Policy. Entry for non-Thais is THB 500. Thais get free entry.

Nice place to visit. Many things to see around. Landmarks are quite known and famous. Must visit. I guess due to covid there were few people.

This is a must see if you're in Bangkok. There is so much gold and lots to see. Go early to beat the crowds and avoid the heat. You have to be covered to enter the temple. We found the price reasonable.
