The Grand plalace is awe striking. We visited a few temples and landmarks, but for this one, we decided to hire someone, the guide was just outside the queue area and charged 600 Baht which is around 15 GBP. (You could do some bartering, but...More
Besides the fact that it was quite an adventure to get to the entrance, one needs to wear a shirt that covers the shoulders and a pair of pants or skirt to cover the legs... So we needed to go back and buy the needed...More
Best and most economical way to travel would be to take the Orange express boat from Saphan Taksin Pier (located close to BTS saphan taksin) & get off at Pier #9. Will cost 15 THB. Grand Palace is just 5 mins walk from the pier....More
A photographers dream... so much in a small area... a tour may help explain it better, but the pamphlet helps.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
