If you had to choose only one visit to Bangkok, it would be the spectacular Grand Palace: the most famous emblem of the city
Built-in 1782 and for 150 years the home of the King of Thailand.
Bangkok's Grand Palace is a gigantic ancient structure that continues to impress its visitors with its beautiful architecture and intricate details.
It can be described as a proud tribute to the creativity and craftsmanship of the Thai people.
Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai kingdom.
The palace is located near the Chao Praya River, in an area not covered by the SkyTrain or the subway (MRT).
To get to the palace, the best way is to take a cab or a public boat.
