The Grand Palace

An Architectural Marvel in Green and Gold

A complex of buildings featuring some of the most ornate Thai architecture in the city, this palace has been the official residence of Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. Comprising of a temple, the Grand Palace and the Chapel, this dazzling landmark is equally a must-see for both locals and tourists.

A main highlight is the magnificent Wat Phra Kaew, commonly known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. This temple is regarded as one of the most sacred Buddhist temples in Thailand and is home to a beautiful emerald Buddha that dates back to the 14th century. Do take note of the strict dress code that applies in this place of worship.
