    Grand Palace

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Bangkok Things to Do

    We feel small! We feel poor! We feel ugly, but we feel blessed by the fortune of seeing such a collection of art masterpieces, in this large complex. It's impossible to go to Bangkok without this palace in mind. Go with time (there are crowds) and if you're not in an escorted visit read what you can before going, or... in place. It's fantastic!
