The King’s Place
Finally, after years, I have done the total tourist thing and finally made it to the Grand Palace here in Bangkok. It’s actually quite impressive, though the palace itself was a suprise to me – it’s a very colonial-style building, but with Thai-style roof. Quite an interesting combination.
It’s more than just the Palace, though. Also in the grounds is Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and all it’s associated buildings and a 1km long mural(!) that is certainly worth seeing, perhaps even moreso than the Palace itself.
I can now add my voice to each and every guide book – yes, it’s worth seeing and is worth the 250B admission. Just remember the dresscode.
