The Grand Palace Reviews
Grand Palace is said to be a Bangkok must, but it's super busy and at times chaotic, don't forget to cover your knees or you will be forced to buy elephant pants/sarong on site. more »
We found the Grand Palace a stunning building and beautiful manicured gardens all around it. It was a lovely peaceful place to visit. more »
What an amazing place! The service is impeccable. Staff are super nice, helpful, refer to you by name, the whole place is super clean and the rooms delightful with much more than the standard amenities. The pool area.... stunning. Any request..... done. Being a regular traveller, it's not often that I would readily give top points but in this case... Yes! Am on my dream trip and this hotel just made it more special. Loved it!
Beautiful palace with some intricate handiwork. Takes about 2-3 hours to explore. Easier to get to via the river. Ticket counter closes at 3.30. Shorts and sleeveless are not allowed. You can rent/buy long pants from the shops on the main road though. Don't wear expensive shoes as you need to remove them to enter the temple.
