The best known tourist attraction is the Grand Palace in Bangkok, who is also the official residence of King of Thailand. The famous Royal Palace complex in Bangkok was built in 1782 and includes several impressive buildings including Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of Emerald Buddha). This temple houses a statue of Emerald Buddha, which dates from the XIV century. Many say that this house is far more impressive than the Grand Palace itself. The complex palate is very high, so you should book him enough time to visit.
During their visit to the Grand Palace complex, women should be very careful about the laws of modesty in Thailand. If their posture is considered as not complying with these unwritten laws will need to rent a sarong. Even narrower trousers may be considered inappropriate.
Grand Palace is a great way to spend half a day even better and one of the objectives in Bangkok not to be missed under any circumstances. Can be very hot in the vast complex and will not find anywhere where to buy a drink. Therefore it would be better to take a water bottle before buying the complex entrance. Be very careful with people trying to fool you that you can not enter the complex, or guide you to buy tickets from their accomplices.
Together with the complex entrance, you will get a free ticket and the museum is right at the entrance of the Grand Palace. The museum is a nice place where you can find cool and interesting things about the complex is not very crowded. If you want to relax a little, The Temple of the Emerald's Budhha must take care not to sit with feet statue of Buddha, because in Thai culture feet are the most unimportant part of the body and is considered a shameful thing.
Grand Palace in Bangkok is certainly the most beautiful place in Bangkok. If a visit to Bangkok is short and you have to visit just one place, then the Grand Palace is the perfect choice.
