Probably the most visited tourist destination in Bangkok. The Grand Palace has been the official residence of the King of Thailand since 1782. The Royal Government was based in the grounds until as recently as 1925.
Today, the Palace is still used for occasional official events and ceremonies. Spread over 50 acres, the Palace and its stunning temples give a unique insight into the history and culture of Thailand.
There is a strict dress code. Wear long pants or jeans and a shirt or T-shirt that covers your shoulders and upper arms. Shorts, tank tops, sandals and flip-flops are not permitted.
Your trip around the Palace is 90% outdoors, so sun protection is essential. Last ticket sold at 3:30pm. Admission fee 400 baht. Our map shows the main tourist entrance to the Palace complex.Updated: 04-Mar-2020
